Caps cool off streaking Predators

WASHINGTON — Daniel Winnik scored two goals as the Capitals cooled off the hottest team in the NHL by beating the Predators 4-1 on Friday. Winnik's goals were his first with the Capitals since they acquired the forward from Toronto at the trade deadline.

Nashville entered with 27 points in its previous 17 games, the league's best run since Feb. 12.

Around the league: Stars forward Tyler Seguin, who entered Friday the league's third-leading scorer, will miss 3-4 weeks for the Western Conference leaders because of a small cut of his left Achilles tendon suffered when he got tangled up with Lightning defenseman Anton Stralman in the final 30 seconds of Thursday's game. Seguin had surgery Friday. … Flyers forward Chris VandeVelde was suspended for two games for elbowing Blackhawks forward Jonathan Toews in the head Wednesday.
