Capitals snap skid, beat Penguins to vault into first place

WASHINGTON (AP) Facing another deficit and the prospect of their losing streak dragging on, Capitals players returned to the locker room at the second intermission with some things to say.

"We were just saying we've got to show some character," veteran Carl Hagelin said. "Things haven't gone the way we wanted. It's time for us to show up."

Oh, they showed up.
