The Capitals head out on a season-long five-game road trip looking their best. But how will they handle the road? Things do not go well on their last extended road trip as they were handed three regulation losses in California. Washington hopes to handle this road swing a bit better. While the Caps look like they have recovered from a four-game losing streak, their first game will be a tough one as they face their former coach Bruce Boudreau and a Minnesota Wild team in desperate need of a win.
