March 20, 1994

Opponent: Tampa Bay Lightning

Site: Orlando (Fla.) Arena

Time: 1:35 p.m.

Radio: Updates on WMAL (630 AM)

Outlook: The Capitals, 1-5-2 in their past eight games, are one point ahead of Florida and three ahead of Philadelphia and the New York Islanders in the battle for the last two Eastern Conference playoff spots. The Lightning, 0-3-2 in its past five, have been idle since Sunday's 5-5 tie with Philadelphia. Tampa Bay G Daren Puppa (2.65 GAA) is the likely starter. Washington G Don Beaupre (2.90 GAA) was pulled in the second period in Dallas, but is likely to be in the net today. Washington RW Pat Peake (cracked rib), D John Slaney (sprained ankle) and G Rick Tabaracci (sprained knee) are out. Tampa Bay RW Petr Klima (separated shoulder) is day-to-day.
