Capitals, Predators out to avoid a three-game skid

The visiting Washington Capitals and Nashville Predators will have the same goal when meeting Tuesday night -- each wants to snap a two-game losing streak.

The usually potent Washington offense hasn't done much during its two-game skid. The Capitals scored just two goals in the past two games, a 2-1 overtime loss to Columbus on Saturday and a 4-1 home defeat against St. Louis on Monday.

When these teams last met, on Dec. 31, Nashville rallied for a 6-3 victory over the Capitals.
