SEASON SERIES: Washington won the lone meeting so far in a shootout.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR: Believe it or not, the Lightning is looking to win consecutive games for the first time this season after a 6-3 victory at New Jersey on Wednesday. ... Rookie forwards Evgeny Artyukin and Nick Tarnasky are expected to play again, meaning forwards Chris Dingman and Martin Cibak likely will sit. ... No official word, but don't be surprised if Sean Burke starts in goal for the Lightning. ... Defenseman Pavel Kubina has a sore left ankle, but should play. ... The Caps are coming off their best performance of the season - a 3-2 victory in Buffalo on Wednesday. ... Tonight is "Pink Out Night." Fans who wear pink in honor of breast cancer research can purchase a ticket to Tuesday's game against the Thrashers at 50 percent off at the McDonald's Box Office based on availability. Pink hats will be available for purchase behind sections 101, 106, 204 and in the XO Club.
