Capitals-Blue Jackets Preview

(AP) -- The Washington Capitals' fortunes tend to be tied greatly to the first goal of a game.

Alex Ovechkin will try to get them off to a strong start again Tuesday night when they visit the struggling Columbus Blue Jackets.

Washington is a league-best 29-1-4 when scoring first, and its 5-19-6 record when giving up the opening goal is among the worst.
