Ovechkin's 2 goals lift Capitals past Blue Jackets, 5-3

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) A great start, a clutch penalty kill at the end, and Alex Ovechkin in between spelled success for the Washington Capitals.

Ovechkin added to his NHL-leading total with two goals Tuesday night, leading the charge in a 5-3 victory that extended the Columbus Blue Jackets' losing streak to seven in a row.

"I liked our start, then we had a huge penalty kill at the end," said coach Barry Trotz. "And we had a nice power play to pull away and get the fourth goal. Plus, we got some big saves from (Braden Holtby). Now, we'll get out of here."
