CALGARY: LAST SEASON: 35-36-11, 81 points. Finished 23rd in NHL after two consecutive last-place finishes, and missed playoffs for fifth consecutive season.
COACH: Dan Bylsma (second season, eighth NHL season)
ADDED: F Kyle Okposo, D Dmitry Kulikov, G Anders Nilsson.
LOST: F David Legwand, D Mark Pysyk, G Chad Johnson.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Jack Eichel. Selected with the No. 2 pick in the 2015 draft behind Edmonton's Connor McDavid, Eichel finished second among NHL rookies with 56 points (24 goals, 32 assists). The 19-year-old displayed breakaway speed and a powerful shot. Eichel is being counted upon to become more consistent now that he has a full season behind him. Eichel went through an 11-game slump spanning November and December, during which he combined for a goal and three assists.
OUTLOOK: The expectations are higher for a Sabres team that made the jump from rock bottom to being relevant by finishing 23rd last season following two consecutive last place finishes. Though missed playoffs for fifth consecutive year, Buffalo showed signs of jelling by closing last year with a 16-10-7 run. Additions of Okposo and Kulikov adds experienced top-line depth to young core. Big question mark is whether G Robin Lehner can establish himself as trusted starter after two injury-shortened seasons.
WASHINGTON: LAST SEASON: 56-18-8, 120 points. Won Metropolitan Division. Lost to Pittsburgh Penguins in second round.
COACH: Barry Trotz (third season, 18th NHL season).
ADDED: C Lars Eller, F Brett Connolly.
LOST: LW Jason Chimera, C Mike Richards, D Mike Weber.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Alex Ovechkin. The league's leading goal scorer over the past four seasons had 50 last year and at 31 is still counted on to be the Capitals' biggest producer. He has All-Star centers Nicklas Backstrom and Evgeny Kuznetsov to play with, and should continue his career-long streak of scoring 30-plus goals.
OUTLOOK: Running back almost an identical lineup from last season when they won the Presidents' Trophy with the most points in the regular season, the Capitals shouldn't be far off that pace again. Players know after not making it past the second round that they'll be judged on April and May performance ' and perhaps June when the Stanley Cup is decided.
Capitals aim to douse Elliott, red-hot Flames

WASHINGTON -- Even though the Washington Capitals have reached the 100-point plateau, every point remains critical thanks to a crowded division race.

Points mean even more to the Calgary Flames, who are trying to reach the playoffs for just the second time in eight seasons.

When the teams meet Tuesday at Verizon Center, it will be the rare matchup where the best team in the league has as much at stake as a third-place squad.

"You talk about being in a position to prepare yourselves for the playoffs -- the games we have against other (non-division) opponents, they're going to have a big impact on the playoffs and where you sit in the playoffs," Capitals coach Barry Trotz said after the morning skate Monday. "It prepares you to play at a real strong level and you're going to get tested a little bit. I think that's great."

Washington has 100 points, tied with fellow Metropolitan Division foe Columbus for most in the NHL and just one point ahead of Pittsburgh in the standings. The Capitals have been a sluggish 5-4-1 in their last 10 contests, but play their next three games at home.

"There really is no easy games the rest of the way," Washington defenseman Karl Alzner told the team's website. "Every team has something that they're playing for."

Calgary is coming off a key victory over Los Angeles on Sunday that bumped it up to 86 points and put it in good position to make the playoffs after missing the postseason last year. The Flames, who are 12-1-0 in their last 13, have made believers across the NHL.

"They're sneaky good in a lot of areas," Trotz said of the Flames. "They're playing as good as I've seen them play in a long time."

A big reason for the Flames' hot streak has been goalie Brian Elliott, who has racked up 11 straight victories with a 1.70 goals-against average. That mark ties Mike Vernon's franchise record for consecutive victories, set in 1989.

"He's been huge for us," Flames winger Johnny Gaudreau said after Sunday's win. "He's won us a couple of huge games the way he's played back there. He's been doing an unbelievable job."

Calgary will be without one -- if not two -- of its contributors for the start of its road trip.

Rookie Matthew Tkachuk received a two-game suspension from the NHL for his elbow to the face of Kings defenseman Drew Doughty during Sunday's game. Tkachuk received the ban after his meeting with the league's Department of Player Safety on Monday afternoon.

Fellow winger Micheal Ferland has been under observation for mumps and may not be available.

"We'll see in the next 24 to 48 hours," Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said.

Washington defenseman Brooks Orpik did not practice Monday in what the team called a maintenance day. The veteran likely will suit up against the Flames, but Trotz did not rule out resting the blue-liner down the stretch.

"We'll see where he is (Tuesday)," Trotz said. "He got a little bumped up in the last game. I anticipate him skating (Tuesday) and he'll tell me where he's at."

Washington defeated Calgary 3-1 on Oct. 30 in the teams' only other meeting this season.
