Capitals, Blackhawks headed in different directions

CHICAGO -- The Washington Capitals will try to extend their point streak to six games when they visit the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night at the United Center.

Washington (33-17-7) is in first place in the Eastern Conference's Metropolitan Division and is looking to reach the playoffs for the 10th time in the past 11 seasons. The Capitals have posted a 3-0-2 record in their past five games and have scored at least three goals in nine straight.

A much uglier streak has derailed Chicago (24-26-8), which is winless in its past eight games. The Blackhawks have dropped seven games in a row on home ice and are 12-13-3 at the United Center, where they have dominated for years.
