Canes, Caps set for crucial home-and-home

The Washington Capitals are fighting hard to stay in first place in the Metropolitan Division, while the Carolina Hurricanes are battling to hold on to a wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference. That's why there's plenty at stake when the two teams meet in Washington on Tuesday night.

Washington (44-24-8, 96 points) held a one-point lead over the Islanders entering Tuesday and was three points up on Pittsburgh, after a 3-1 victory over Philadelphia on Sunday. The win finished the Caps' sweep of the four-game series with the Flyers.

Carolina (42-26-7, 91 points) holds the East's top wild-card spot, three points ahead of Montreal entering Tuesday. The Hurricanes are also just five points behind the Capitals in the division with one game at hand.
