Pittsburgh Loses To Capitals
WASHINGTON (AP) - Alex Ovechkin scored twice to take the NHL lead in goals, Braden Holtby recovered from a mini-slump to get his fifth shutout of the season, and Sidney Crosby had one of his worst faceoff nights as the Washington Capitals broke a four-game losing streak with a 4-0 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday. Ovechkin had a tip-in goal in the first period and then scored from his customary spot in the left circle with a one-timer on a power play in the second. His 29 goals are one more than Rich Nash and Tyler Seguin. Eric Fehr and Mike Green scored in the third. Holtby, the stabilizing force that helped the Capitals recover from a slow start to the season, had allowed four goals in each of his last three starts.
