Capitals look to get back on track against Panthers

SUNRISE, Fla. -- The Washington Capitals lead the Metropolitan Division, but they have lost four of the past six games.

Going back further in this worrisome Capitals stretch, they have lost nine of their past 15 games heading into Thursday night's game against the host Florida Panthers at the BB&T Center.

Capitals star goalie and two-time Vezina Trophy-finalist Braden Holtby has a personal four-game losing streak -- the worst stretch of his career -- and he has taken it upon himself to shoulder the blame during this Washington slump.
