Capitals put 4-1 road record on line in Calgary

The first chapter of the Washington Capitals' five-game road trip was a success. Beating the Chicago Blackhawks 5-3 on Sunday before heading to Calgary to face the Flames on Tuesday has the Capitals believing great things can happen during their sojourn, which runs through Western Canada before ending in Toronto.

"It's a long trip, and if you lose the first one, you don't know what happens on the second one. It can make for kind of a tough one," forward T.J. Oshie told NHL.com after his club's victory over the Blackhawks. "It's nice to get the win in the first one. Obviously maybe not our best game, but we found a way to win. That's encouraging going forward on this long trip."

Sure, the Windy City win wasn't pretty -- Washington blew a two-goal lead in the third period before pulling away -- but the Metropolitan Division leaders have won four of five road games this season.
