Ovechkin gives Caps overtime win over Senators
Just after consecutive minor penalties against Ottawa expired, Semin put the Capitals up 1-0 18:38 into the game. Semin skated unchecked through the right circle, knocking home a feed from Brooks Laich.
The tie lasted until Fehr pounded Matt Hendricks’ centering pass past Leclaire at 11:18.
Ottawa tied the game with 12:40 remaining in regulation. Peter Regin stole the puck from Washington’s Nicklas Backstrom in front of the Capitals bench and fed Shannon, who scored on snap shot from between the circles.
Notes: Capitals RW Matt Bradley skated three first-period shifts before departing with an undisclosed lower-body injury. He is day-to-day. … Washington D Tom Poti was a late scratch with an undisclosed lower-body injury and was replaced by D Tyler Sloan. … Continuing a longtime Washington custom, ex-Capital Gonchar was serenaded with a derisive whooping chant each time he touched the puck. The practice dates to 1989 and was first directed at former Cap Larry Murphy, who had been traded to Minnesota. … Seven-foot Washington Wizards forward Yi Jianlian of China donned a red Capitals jersey and sat alongside Ted Leonsis, majority owner of the NBA and NHL clubs.
