The last time the Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals met, the former was on its way to winning four of five while the latter was in the midst of dropping four of five. Tim Ream Jersey . The outcome of that game was as would be expected. When the teams meet tonight in Toronto, recent form will be entirely flipped, and the club with extended struggles will have a new coach on the bench. Since that 1-3-1 stretch from Nov. 22-Dec. 2, which included a 6-2 loss at Toronto on Nov. 29, the Capitals (20-11-7) have been one of the best team in hockey with a 10-1-3 record making for a furious ascent in the Metropolitan Division. We dont get flustered as much as we did earlier in the year, coach Barry Trotz said. Early in the year our highs were very high and our lows were low ... (now) theres not too many highs or too many lows. We just say Hey, things are going to happen, lets just get the momentum back, lets get the next one, lets go. The Maple Leafs (21-16-3) havent struggled for as long of a time, but theyve clearly had enough after a 2-7-0 span. On Tuesday, it cost coach Randy Carlyle his job. Assistants Peter Horacek and Steve Spott will take over for the time being, and theres been no indication as to which avenue the club will take toward finding a full-time solution. I think wed all agree weve had some good periods, good stretches, but I dont think I can stand here in front of you and say that weve been consistent, general manager Dave Nonis said. We just felt at this point this was the right time to make the change and move ahead and try to get this team back playing like we have played for periods this season. The new coaches will debut before a home crowd after a seven-game road trip that ended with a 5-1 loss Saturday at Winnipeg. Maple Leafs centre Nazem Kadri missed the past two games with a lower-body injury but looks to be in line for a return tonight. He was expected to miss 7-10 days. Stephane Robidas, who sat as a healthy scratch the past four games, appears to be back in the lineup for tonights contest as well. Torontos defensive struggles figure to be at the forefront of the new regimes focus, having allowed 3.89 goals per game over the nine-game span with a power-play goal conceded in five straight (70.6 percent). Its been too much of a roller-coaster, Nonis said. Its not that (players are) not capable because they are. Its not that they havent done it because they have. Thats probably the biggest reason, or one of the biggest reasons, for the change today. The Capitals, meanwhile, can match a season-best three-game winning streak after Sundays 4-3 home win over Florida. Alex Ovechkin had a goal and an assist, splitting a multipoint effort for a third straight game, and he and Nicklas Backstrom had a fresh face on the top line. Rookie Andre Burakovsky skated with the top Capitals forwards for the first time, and he scored his fifth goal of the season for his only point in seven games. He was playing with two big stars and he didnt look intimidated, Trotz said. Braden Holtby has been in goal for the entire 14-game stretch with a 2.05 goals-against average. As a starter against Toronto, hes 2-0-1 with a 0.97 GAA. Jonathan Bernier gets the start in goal for Toronto after James Reimer faced the Jets. Against Washington, Bernier is 3-1-0 with a 2.01 GAA, including a 35-save effort in the November meeting. Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen is questionable after suffering a lower-body injury against Florida. Capitals (47PTS) at Maple Leafs (45PTS) - 7PM TOR is 1-0-0 vs WSH this season, winning at home TOR has won 3 straight at home vs WSH TOR (21-16-3): lost 2 straight, 1GF in each game, 1/8 on PP JVR (3G, 5A) past 6 games WSH (20-11-7): 3-0-1 past 4 games, 3GF in each game, 2/15 on PP Ovechkin (3G, 3A) 3 game PT streak Projected Leafs lines vs. Capitals FORWARD Winnik - Kadri - Kessel van Riemsdyk - Bozak - Santorelli Komarov - Smith - Clarkson Panik - Carrick - McKegg DEFENCE Phaneuf - Franson Rielly - Polak Gardiner - Robidas GOALIE Bernier Starts Omar Gonzalez Jersey . -- The Vancouver Whitecaps remained unbeaten with a scoreless draw at the New England Revolution on Saturday. Walker Zimmerman Jersey .A. remained bitter for Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers on the long flight back home to New York. . 3 Ohio State. Amedeo Della Valle had 15 points, Marc Loving scored a career-high 13 and the bench provided 38 points as the Buckeyes sprinted past Nebraska 84-53 on Saturday. BALTIMORE -- As poorly as they played for the first seven innings, it seemed hard to imagine the Baltimore Orioles would be celebrating an uplifting victory well after midnight. Then again, strange things happen when the Chicago White Sox are involved. Nelson Cruz hit a game-tying grand slam in the eighth inning and David Lough scored the winning run on a wild pitch in the 12th to give the Orioles a 5-4 victory Wednesday night. Nick Markakis had four hits for the Orioles, who won two of three from Chicago -- twice in their last at-bat. "Its big," Lough said. "Thats our second walk-off win against these guys. Theyre a good team. Give credit to them and their pitching staff for holding us." The Orioles didnt get a runner past first base against White Sox starter Hector Noesi until the seventh inning and trailed 4-0 entering the eighth. Noesi was pulled after giving up two straight singles, and Scott Downs walked Chris Davis to load the bases with two outs. Chicago manager Robin Ventura summoned Javy Guerra, the fourth pitcher of the inning, to face Cruz. On a 2-1 pitch, Cruz launched an opposite-field drive that barely cleared the wall in right field. It was his 24th home run, the second grand slam of the season and eighth of his career. "I had the chance to do some damage in a couple of at-bats before then, but I grounded into a double play twice," Cruz said. "It feels good to get the home run to tie the game." Said Lough: "Thats a big-time clutch hit right there, as big as it gets. Thats who we want at the plate, because he leads this team. You see what hes capable of doing and the numbers hes put up. Hes a special player." Neither team threatened before the grounds crew came with the tarp as soon as the ninth inning ended. Rain delayed the start of the 10th for 69 minutes. Nick Hundley opened the bottom of the 12th with a walk off Daniel Webb (4-2) and Lough entered as a pinch-runner. Lough took third on a single by Markakis and scored easily when Webb uncorked a pitch that got past catcher Tyler Flowers. "Its tough to lose like that," Ventura said. "Hector threw a great game, but we couldnt hold onto it. Weve got to be able to be better at the end. Perry Kitchen Jersey. " Tommy Hunter (2-1) got the final out in the Chicago 12th to earn the win. "It didnt look like it was a 4-4 game or it ended up being 5-4 in the first seven innings," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "Eight innings. Whatever it was. It seems like yesterday. It was yesterday." Jose Abreu hit his 23rd home run for the White Sox, Adam Eaton tied a career high with four hits and Flowers drove in two runs. Abreu has four homers and 10 RBIs during his current 10-game hitting streak. None of it mattered. "The way we played, we should have (won), but the baseball gods must be upset with us in some way, shape, or form," Eaton said. Baltimore starter Ubaldo Jimenez allowed four runs and eight hits in 6 1-3 innings. The right-hander left the mound in danger of absorbing his ninth loss, but Cruzs slam took Jimenez off the hook. Until Cruz connected, Noesi and the White Sox dominated. Abreu provided Chicago a 1-0 lead by hitting the first pitch of the fourth inning into the seats in left. In the fifth, Alejandro De Aza drew a leadoff walk and scored on a triple by Eaton. The Orioles pulled the infield in, and that resulted in Eaton being thrown out at the plate on a grounder to third. Flowers hit a two-run single in the seventh to make it 4-0. That seemingly provided a bit of breathing room for the White Sox, whose previous seven games were decided by two runs or fewer. Unfortunately for Chicago, the lead didnt hold up. "That was my fault, I put this game on myself," Guerra said. "I have to be better in that situation, no matter what. I need to understand the situation. I feel bad for the team in general because I know I let everyone down." NOTES: Baltimore is off Thursday. Chicago sends Scott Carroll to the mound in the opener of a four-game series against host Toronto. ... Orioles RHP Bud Norris (strained groin) was supposed to pitch in Fridays split doubleheader against Tampa Bay. Chris Tillman will start instead, and Norris might not pitch again until Tuesday. He was expected to have an MRI on Thursday, Showalter said. ... Eaton has reached base in 20 straight games and owns a career-best 12-game hitting streak.
