The Washington Capitals continue to wind down their season and will try to snap a five-game losing streak tonight against the Florida Panthers.

Florida, of course, is in the midst of a run to the postseason having won its past five games.

This is yet another must-win game for the Panthers and it will come against a depleted Capitals team who may be without captain Alex Ovechkin.

Ovechkin did not participate in Saturday’s morning skate in northern Virginia as the team says he has an upper-body injury.

Florida, meanwhile, is rolling out the same lineup they have for the past week.

Sam Bennett skated on Saturday but remains out although Sergei Bobrovsky will return.

Not as the starter, mind you.

Alex Lyon will get his sixth consecutive start as he goes for his sixth consecutive win.

With three games left, it appears the net belongs to Lyon as long as he and the Panthers continue to win.
