Canadiens seek to end skid vs. Capitals

WASHINGTON -- The NHL schedule maker did no favors for the Washington Capitals.

Coming out of their 'bye week,' the Capitals are going from zero to 60 with three games in four days following a five-day layoff. They began that stretch Thursday night with a 4-3 overtime loss at New Jersey and it continues when Washington hosts the Montreal Canadiens Friday night.

Taylor Hall scored 34 seconds into overtime for the Devils, who had lost five straight to the Capitals, including two this season. Washington (28-15-3) still holds a four-point lead over second-place New Jersey in the Metropolitan Division.
