COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Washington Capitals play the first of back-to-back games Tuesday as they take on the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena.The Capitals (9-4-1, 19 points) have lost two of their last three games and face a Columbus team that is 5-0-0 at home since Oct. 15.The Blue Jackets (7-4-2, 16 points) scored 10 goals against Montreal earlier this month and eight goals against St. Louis in their last game, with both of those games at home.Washingtons offense is ranked 16th in the NHL with 2.64 goals per game. The Blue Jackets are ranked 2nd in the league with 3.46 goals per game.In an effort to spark some offense from his team, Capitals head coach Barry Trotz made some line changes ahead of Tuesdays game with Columbus.One thing that resonates with me a lot is that you have to have a balance of will and skill, he told The Washington Post. Sometimes we forget that we need the will and the skill to work together. I made a lot of changes, even for my standards in some way, but at the same time, the players that have played well are going to move up and get an opportunity. You never know.The Capitals points leader is left winger Marcus Johansson, with seven goals and five assists for 12 points. He is followed by left winger Alex Ovechkin, with seven goals and four assists for 11 points.They are backstopped by goaltender Braden Holtby, with a record of 7-3-1 in 11 games. He has a 2.16 goals-against average and a .922 save percentage and sits 10th in the league in save percentage (minimum 10 games played).Although the Blue Jackets penalty-killing unit allowed four goals on five power-play opportunities in their last game, their power play still sits atop the NHL with a 33.3 power-play percentage. The Capitals convert 12.5 percent of their man-advantage opportunities and sit 24th in the league.Neither the players nor head coach John Tortorella left the arena happy after Saturdays 8-4 win over St. Louis, much of the discomfort due to their sloppy play.The team held an intense practice Monday, in order to keep them from becoming complacent despite a decent start to their season.Its been a struggle with our coverages because we dont initiate the contact and win the one-on-one battle and it allows (an opponent) to play (in our end) and brings in different kind of coverages, sometimes we have to switch, Tortorella said to the Columbus Dispatch.It causes too many problems when that initial battle isnt won and we havent won enough of those.Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky is expected to make his 13th start in 14 games against the Capitals. He has a record of 7-4-1, with a 2.33 goals-against average and a .931 save percentage and sits 6th in save percentage in the NHL (minimum 10 games played).No lineup changes appear to be imminent for the Blue Jackets for Tuesdays game against the Capitals.

Mitch Wishnowsky Super Bowl Jersey . Each of Houstons starters scored in double figures as the Rockets improved to 2-0 against the Spurs this season, with both victories coming on the road. They also moved within 3 1/2 games of San Antonio (22-7) for the lead the Southwest Division. Marquise Goodwin Super Bowl Jersey . Malkin got tangled up with Detroits Luke Glendening early in the third period and his left skate took the brunt of collision with the boards behind Pittsburghs net. ST. LOUIS -- Vladimir Tarasenko picked a good time to break his scoring slump.Jay Bouwmeester tied it in early the third period and Tarasenko scored the winner late in overtime to lift the St. Louis Blues to a 2-1 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.He looked like he had his skating legs today, Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said of Tarasenko. He was a determined player. He stayed with it. We stayed with it. When your best player stays with it, it forces everybody else to do that.Carter Hutton stopped 20 shots for his second win of the season, helping the Blues improve to 4-1-1 at home this season and give them five wins in the last six meetings with the Blue Jackets at Scottrade Center.Josh Anderson scored for Columbus, which was coming off a 10-0 win against Montreal the previous night and snapped a three-game winning streak. Curtis McElhinney finished with 28 saves.Bouwmeester ripped a shot past McElhinney from the left dot at 2:16 of the third with his first goal since Feb. 22, 2016, against San Jose.It was a good play by (Scottie Upshall), Bouwmeester said. I dont know if they were coming off a change or some sort of transition. The whole side of the ice was kind of open. Its good when you get a chance like that.Tarasenkos wrister with 43 seconds on the clock in overtime broke his seven-game goal-scoring drought.You cant give a guy like that that kind of time to come in, Hutton said. Ive been victimized by him before so it was nice to see it went in and it was a nice win for us.Even though they outshot the Blue Jackets 8-3, the Blues were held scoreless in the first period for the sixth consecutive game. The three shots by Columbus were the fewest by an NHL team this season for the first period.McElhinney came up big for the Blue Jackets with a pair of saves on Tarasenko from the slot early in the second period. McElhinney also got help from his post as Upshall hit iron with a wide-open net on a rebound attempt.ddddddddddddMaking his first start this season, McElhinney turned away the first 24 shots, before Bouwmeester snapped Columbus team shutout streak at 121 minutes, 49 seconds.I watch Nick Foligno fight (Ryan Reaves), Columbus coach John Tortorella said. I watch Mac play the way he did in net. I watched some other guys do everything they possibly can to try to win the hockey game and then I see a few of our top guys, they did not give enough.Anderson put Columbus up 1-0 with an unassisted goal with 7:05 left in the second period. A turnover by Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk went right to the tape of Andersons stick, who ripped a point-blank shot by Hutton for his third goal in his last two games.Shattenkirk credited the forecheck of Boone Jenner for creating the turnover.I did a good job of getting body positioning on him and I was trying to separate from him and as I went to go get the puck to push it forward he gave me just a nice little touch right on my stick which whacked it right to the net front, Shattenkirk said. I just got to protect it a little bit better and be able to skate that out.Game notes Bouwmeester was honored before the game for playing in his 1,000 career NHL game on Tuesday at New York. ...
