(Sports Network) - The Ottawa Senators try to end a three-game skid tonight when they visit the Washington Capitals at the Verizon Center.

Since a three-game winning streak that saw the Sens outscore opponents a combined 21-5, they have dropped contests to Boston, Montreal and Carolina. On Saturday Ottawa lost a 3-2 decision to the visiting Hurricanes. Ray Whitney scored twice in the third period, including the game-winner midway through, to lift Carolina.

Daniel Alfredsson and Denis Hamel both notched their second goals of the season, and former Hurricane Martin Gerber made 37 saves in a losing effort.

The Senators have lost three straight for the second time this season, as they also did so from October 5-12.

Ottawa was 0-for-7 on the power play Saturday and is a meager 6-for-71 this season. Their 8.5 percentage with the man-advantage is the worst mark in the league.

The Sens begin a four-game road trip tonight and will visit Atlanta on Wednesday.
