Streaking Capitals host slumping Blackhawks

Getty Images

Chicago's leading scorer Patrick Kane (27 points) has gone two straight games without a point. That was until Backstrom's Capitals faced the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night.

On the next shift, Wilson sped toward the net, and Forsberg saved the shot with his pad, but Ovechkin had been trailing behind to score on the rebound.

Nicklas Backstrom, who had a goal and two assists, Wilson and Alex Ovechkin, who scored his National Hockey League leading 21st goal, tallied in a span of 3:28 in the second half of the first frame.

Jonathan Toews scored a slick goal late in the period off a dirty backhand deke.

Game highlights: Frederik Andersen stopped 47 shots through regulation and overtime, and three more in the shootout as the host Maple Leafs beat the Flames 2-1. "When we got down, they just seemed to feed off it".

Two months into the season, it is more than fair to ask if the Blackhawks as you have come to know them the past 10 years will ever show up this season. He's doing that. I think he's coming into his own as a player, not just a talent.

What is clear is that Milne is determined not to lose his boss to his club's main rivals for second place. Assistant Tony Docherty also skipped the session.

Wilson had two goals and two assists for his first four-point game, and Ovechkin had a goal and three assists, and the duo made good on their plan to get Backstrom a goal. It was Chicago's fourth consecutive loss (0-2-2), after going 4-0-1 in the previous five games.

"It's a different story every night", Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith said.

Brett Connolly and Evgeny Kuznetsov also scored for the Capitals, who have won six of seven to move into a tie for second place in the Metropolitan Division.

Ottawa lost its second straight game to start a season-high, seven-game road trip and has dropped nine of its last 10 contests. Oshie missed the game after sustaining an upper-body injury Monday night against San Jose.

Coach Joel Quenneville told reporters Wednesday that there's some "likelihood" Crawford (undisclosed) will play Sunday against the Coyotes. Chicago returns home Friday to face the Buffalo Sabres. He has played five games at Washington, four at Capital One Arena and one at Nationals Park.
