Dueling back-to-backs as Capitals host Panthers

WASHINGTON -- It may be early in the NHL campaign, but the Florida Panthers and Washington Capitals are in a hurry to find the consistency needed to string wins together and move up in the standings.

When the teams collide Saturday at CapitalOne Arena, both will be playing the second game of back-to-back sets, with the Panthers coming off a 4-3 home loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Capitals besting the Red Wings 4-3 in overtime in Detroit.

Capitals coach Barry Trotz has tinkered with his lines in the early part of the season, but he has been pleased with the work of forward Devante Smith-Pelly, who has answered the challenge the coach put in front of him.
