Streaking Capitals vie for sweep of road trip vs. Ducks

After setting a franchise record for most points through 30 games, the Washington Capitals look to finish off a sweep of their four-game road trip when they face the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.

The Capitals have won five in a row and their 47 points were tops in the NHL heading into Thursday's action. They'll be facing a well-rested Anaheim team that also comes in off a victory over the Kings (4-2) and no doubt may have a little extra motivation for the contest.

Washington skated to a 5-2 victory over Anaheim on Nov. 18 at home in a contest that featured a brawl late in the second period. The end result was Ducks forward Nick Ritchie picking up a game misconduct for being the third man into a fight and Capitals forward Garnet Hathaway receiving a match penalty for spitting on Anaheim defenseman Erik Gudbranson.
