News and notes as the Capitals prepare for tonights 5 p.m. puck drop against the Toronto Maple Leafs:
The Capitals certainly havent arrived here under the most ideal conditions.
They have strung together two or more wins in a row just twice since Jan. 15.
The Caps know they have their work cut out for themselves in the remaining weeks of the regular season. Most of the heavy-lifting will come away from D.C.
Alex Semin hasnt taken a minor penalty in nine games. Thats a good thing.
But he also hasnt picked up a point and is a minus-2 in his last five games.
