Ovechkin hits 30 goals, Winnik scores as Caps beat Coyotes

WASHINGTON (AP) A milestone goal by Alex Ovechkin and a timely score by Daniel Winnik helped the Washington Capitals survive a scare against one of the NHL's worst teams.

Ovechkin scored his 30th goal of the season and Winnik had the game-winner and an empty-netter as the Capitals overcame listless stretches to beat the lowly but pesky Arizona Coyotes 4-1 Saturday night for their fourth consecutive victory. Ovechkin became the third player in league history to score 30-plus goals in each of his first 12 seasons, joining Mike Gartner (15) and Wayne Gretzky (13).

"It's very huge, obviously," said Ovechkin, who scored on the power play in the first period. "It's nice to be in history. But more history to come."
