Caps, Sharks aim to end midseason skids

The Washington Capitals and the visiting San Jose Sharks both are hoping to snap out of recent slides when they meet Tuesday in the nation's capital.

Washington is going through its worst stretch of the season, having dropped five consecutive games (0-4-1). San Jose lost its third straight on Monday, falling 6-2 to the host Florida Panthers. The skid immediately followed a seven-game winning streak.

First-year Capitals coach Todd Reirden met with his players before practice on Monday to talk about things they need to do better. He said the problems are both mental and physical, and they need to get back to the kind of hockey they played earlier this season and in last year's playoffs en route to winning the Stanley Cup.
