News and notes as the Caps contemplate some tough roster decisions..
A bad exchange between Brooks Laich and Mike Green led to the game-winning goal. And now the Caps sit in 11th place in the Eastern Conference.
A good chunk of the joy emanating from the Caps three-game road winning streak was tempered by a home-ice loss to the New York Islanders Tuesday night.
The Caps came back to tie the Islanders at 2, but a late goal from New York's John Taveres sent the Caps home with a 3-2 loss.
