Caps not looking past Coyotes

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Capitals are getting ready to embark on a five-game, eight-night road trip that could derail their spot atop the NHL points race.

But first they will host the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night at Verizon Center. The Coyotes (27-38-9) are no longer contending for the post-season, but Capitals head coach Barry Trotz isn't looking past them.

"We've got to collect points. We've got nine games left and we hold our own fate in our hands, really," Trotz said. "We just take it individually, each game. Arizona should not come in here and think they can win a hockey game. We've got to make sure that we're on top of our game and we've got to perform at a high level, and if we can get a victory tomorrow, then we move on to the next team."
