The Capitals can regain eighth place with a win tonight in Boston.
With five games remaining in the regular season the Caps are left fighting for their playoff lives. There are 10 points still on the table and they can't afford to lose any more.
The Capitals are disappointed at losing control of their own destiny but believe they can make run.
Tomas Vokoun has been battling a groin strain since March 16. He says he's ready to play and has a lot riding on the Caps' fight to the finish.
