Capitals seeking offensive spark against Blackhawks

As the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals prepare to battle the Blackhawks in Chicago on Sunday afternoon, two things are clear.

The last-place Blackhawks are obviously struggling, but so are the Capitals.

The Capitals dropped their fourth straight on Friday as the New York Islanders handed them a 2-0 loss in D.C. as former Caps' coach Barry Trotz returned to town for the first time since leaving after winning the Cup last June.
