WHAT’S UP: The Boys In Blue hope to avoid defeat for the second consecutive match, and will have to do it while fighting its recent Achilles heel: playing on the road. It’s Match Day 12 for the Revs, who sit sixth in the Eastern Conference (5-4-2), while the ‘Caps sit fifth in the West (4-5-4). Vancouver has three straight draws entering this early evening — matinee out there in the West Coast — contest, but have only lost once in its last 15 home matches.
