The Capitals are in a bit of scoring rut, scoring just two goals in four of their last five games. But they've also allowed nine total goals in their past two games as they've struggled in the first period. The team has been outscored 6-0 in the opening 20 minutes of its recent road trip, and have been outscored 8-0 in the first period of its last five games.
