Caps, Wild both hungry for win with DC battle on tap

The Washington Capitals and Minnesota Wild both need a victory in Friday's battle in D.C. -- but they're needed for different reasons.

Washington picked up a point in a 5-4 overtime loss at home to Tampa Bay on Wednesday. That gave Washington, the leader in the Metropolitan Division, 94 points. But the Capitals can ill afford to ease up, with the New York Islanders only three points back and the Pittsburgh Penguins five points back.

Minnesota fell 3-1 at home to Colorado on Tuesday, leaving the Wild one point out of the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference entering Thursday.
