NHL-leading Capitals aim to end troubling power-play drought

WASHINGTON (AP) The Capitals are winners of three in a row and sitting pretty atop the NHL, so not much seems to be going wrong for Washington. They do however have one glaring problem - power-play goals - and it is something coach Barry Trotz hopes to fix sooner rather than later.

Washington is 0 for their last 17 and haven't scored a power-play goal since Jan. 19 after consistently being the league's top power-play team the past several seasons.

The five-game drought hasn't cost them in the standings, but after a similar stretch haunted them in last year's playoffs, so it's worth significant attention in the coming days and weeks.
