Outlook: The Capitals will try to rebound from Thursday night's 5-4 overtime loss in Detroit in which Sergei Fedorov scored the Red Wings' five goals. The Caps are .500 in their last four $H games, and with a 15-19-2 overall mark, they need to start piling up victories. The Panthers, the NHL's best team with a 20-8-8 record, came back from a 3-0 deficit against Tampa Bay on Thursday night for a 3-3 tie.
