Capitals seek consistency as trip turns to Toronto

The Washington Capitals will continue their search for consistency Thursday night when they visit the Toronto Maple Leafs, a team they have yet to defeat this season.

The Maple Leafs defeated the Capitals 4-2 at Washington Oct. 13 and 6-3 Jan. 23 at Toronto.

The defending Stanley Cup champions have struggled with consistency all season, and their 2-2-0 record with two contests left on a six-game trip provides an example.
