WASHINGTON: LAST SEASON: 49-26-7, 105 points. Won Metropolitan Division and Stanley Cup.
COACH: Todd Reirden (First season, first NHL season)
ADDED: C Nic Dowd, G Ilya Samsonov
LOST: C Jay Beagle, G Philipp Grubauer, D Jakub Jerabek
PLAYER TO WATCH: LW Alex Ovechkin. Coming off scoring an NHL-best 49 goals and winning the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP, Ovechkin has nothing left to prove as one of the best players of his generation. Now the Russian superstar is a father and a Stanley Cup-winner, though, so everyone's waiting to see his next trick at age 33.
OUTLOOK: Stanley Cup hangovers are real, and the Capitals will have to manage that and goaltender Braden Holtby playing more games because they don't have a proven backup. Washington has the talent on paper to make another deep run, but all those games deep into last June could have an effect. Reirden will have to be careful with that after replacing Barry Trotz behind the bench.
CAROLINA: LAST SEASON: 36-35-11, 83 points. Sixth in Metropolitan Division.
COACH: Rod Brind'Amour (first season, first NHL season).
ADDED: F Andrei Svechnikov, D Dougie Hamilton, D Calvin de Haan, G Petr Mrazek.
LOST: G Cam Ward, F Jeff Skinner, F Elias Lindholm, D Noah Hanifin.
PLAYER TO WATCH: C Sebastian Aho. The 21-year-old led the team last season with 29 goals and 65 points. He's entering his third season, and figures to be the team's top offensive threat ' especially now that Jeff Skinner has been traded to Buffalo ' though it will be worth watching to see how he adjusts to playing center instead of the wing.
OUTLOOK: With each passing year, the Hurricanes grow more tired of talking about their lengthy run of playoff absences. Either way, they'll make history this season ' either by finally ending the drought, or by missing out yet again and matching the longest dry spell in NHL history. They have the defensive corps of a playoff team, but will need improvement from G Scott Darling and their young scorers to generate offense to finally make the postseason.
Capitals seek to close out series at Carolina

The Washington Capitals have done some good work in this first-round series with the Carolina Hurricanes.

There's still more work to do.

Washington goes into Monday night's Game 6 at PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C., needing one more victory to secure the series.

"We have to go hard the next game," Capitals goalie Braden Holtby said. "Now we know what we have to do and let's go bring it in Game 6."

Washington took a 3-2 series lead with Saturday night's 6-0 home victory.

"We show when we play that way, we can be pretty tough to beat," Holtby said. "It's on us to play like that."

After the Hurricanes won two home games last week, they were hoping the momentum would stay with them.

Now they have to regroup in a hurry with their season hanging in the balance.

"A lot of momentum swings in playoff series, and we've got to swing it back in our direction in Game 6," Carolina captain Justin Williams said.

The crowd in Raleigh has been a big factor in the series, and the Capitals are aware of that.

"They get behind their players and they play well there," center Nic Dowd said.

The visiting team has yet to hold a lead in any of the five games in the series.

The Capitals likely will have right winger Devante Smith-Pelly on the ice for a road game for the first time in the series. He was called up from the American Hockey League with right winger T.J. Oshie lost to an injury. It was announced Sunday that Oshie will miss the rest of the playoffs after having surgery for a broken right clavicle.

Smith-Pelly, who logged slightly more than 10 minutes Saturday night without a point, was a key contributor in the 2018 postseason.

"I think when you go through the situation like we went through as far as losing one of our top players and leaders, you use that as opportunity," Washington coach Todd Reirden said of Oshie's absence and Smith-Pelly's return. "Someone has to take advantage of it. ... (Smith-Pelly is) a very well-liked player in our locker room. It was a nice distraction from us losing a top, top player, a top leader on our team."

When things have gone well for the Capitals, they've looked crisp.

"Guys are giving each other energy," Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom said.

The Hurricanes didn't have answers in any category. Still, they seem as if they know the formula necessary to excel in this series.

"Hopefully Monday night we can come out with a game that is our identity," Carolina defenseman Jaccob Slavin said. "And that's working hard and getting pucks deep."

The Hurricanes could receive a boost from an anticipated return of right winger Andrei Svechnikov, who was knocked out by an Alex Ovechkin punch in Game 3. Svechnikov was in the concussion protocol but has returned to on-ice activities. He scored two goals in Game 1.

Anticipating that move Sunday, the Hurricanes reassigned center Aleksi Saarela to Charlotte of the AHL after he made his NHL debut in Game 5.

Meanwhile, the Hurricanes have stuck with goalie Petr Mrazek throughout the series. Coach Rod Brind'Amour said he considered pulling him in favor of Curtis McElhinney during Saturday night's lopsided loss but decided against that switch.
