Washington looks to carry the momentum from its first win of the season into Ottawa tonight as it takes on the 3-1-1 Senators, who will be without Jason Spezza.
Michal Neuvirth, who is making a strong case for himself as the Capitals No. 1 goalie, gets a fourth straight start and will be opposed by Craig Anderson (3-0-1, .975 save percentage and 0.74 GAA). In 11 career games against Washington, Anderson is 5-5-1 with a .918 save percentage and 2.72 GAA.
