Blue Jackets, Capitals look to take series lead

WASHINGTON -- The best-of-seven is now a best-of-three.

The Columbus Blue Jackets, unable to capitalize on the prosperity of winning the first two games on the road, travel to Washington for Saturday's Game 5 matinee against the resurgent Capitals with the series tied -- just as Alex Ovechkin predicted.

"Obviously, the next game is a real pivotal game," Capitals coach Barry Trotz told NHL.com. "Someone's going to take the lead in this series, and then your back's against the wall. So we've got to make sure we're ready to go. But I think we have been since we got here, and we've just got to do it at home."
