(AP) — Highlighting tonight's four-game NHL slate is the league's top team. The Washington Capitals host the Dallas Stars. The Caps have 95 points and have lost only 13 games in regulation all season. The Stars on the other hand are fading from the Western Conference playoff picture.

Also today, Atlantic Division rivals, the Bruins and Senators face-off in Ottawa. The Rangers are in Tampa Bay to face the Lightning, while the Sharks are in Winnipeg. San Jose is playing on back-to-back night, following a 3-1 loss to the Wild in Minnesota yesterday.
