Caps get Monday off after win over Penguins

Capitals Coach Bruce Boudreau said the team would not be practicing on Monday but that the players shouldn't necessarily consider the day off as a reward for their 5-4 overtime win against Pittsburgh.

It's more about rest and recovery for a team that has played three games in four days, including Friday's 5-2 victory over Atlanta just hours after the blizzard began in the metro area. That was Washington's second of back-to-back games.

The Capitals are scheduled to practice again on Tuesday before departing for Montreal, where they play on Wednesday. That begins a three-game road trip for Washington leading up to the NHL's two-week break for the Olympics.
