Bruins Vs. Capitals: Washington Faces Two Must-Win Games After 4-1 Loss To Boston

The Washington Capitals lost to the Boston Bruins 4-1 Sunday, but considering the games they face next week, losing Sunday was less detrimental.

Tuesday, the Caps host the Florida Panthers, who lead the Southeast Division by one point after they defeated the Caps 4-2 Wednesday. Thursday, Washington hosts the Winnipeg Jets, who are right on their heels just four points back.

Two regulation wins would put the Caps back in control of the Southeast Division, one that they have dominated for the better part of three years. Two losses, however, could put them in third place.

Last week, defenseman Karl Alzner admitted that it was difficult to get up for a game against the Panthers, especially in their quiet building. Yet, the Caps need to get up and stay up against the Southeast Division for the rest of the season. It is possible that the division winner is the only one to make the playoffs out of the Southeast, so if Washington cannot get up, they will have to get out.
