Ovechkin, Backstrom lead Capitals’ third-period rally over Senators
Question of the Day
Troy Brouwer scored 15 seconds later to make it a 4-2. John Carlson, who had two assists, scored into an empty net at 19:14 for his third point.
Jeff Halpern scored early in the second and Tomas Vokoun made 31 saves for Washington, which has won two of three, including an overtime win over Ottawa on Saturday.
Craig Anderson made 39 saves, and Erik Condra and Nick Foligno scored second-period goals for Ottawa, which has lost three of four (1-2-1).
Backstrom took a return pass from Brooks Laich and fired a shot past Anderson for the tying goal midway through the third.
Ovechkin made it 3-2 with a huge individual effort. He carried the puck down the left side, behind the net, and back along the right side before slamming on the brakes and turning around to drive a slap shot past Anderson.
Ottawa’s Chris Neil was given a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct 8:12 into the second after he dropped to the ice following a spear by Ovechkin. The two were skating behind the play, after Neil delivered a solid check in the corner, when Ovechkin jabbed his stick blade into the Senators right wing’s groin.
Condra drew Ottawa even at 1 when he scored, despite being hauled down by defenseman John Erskine.
Foligno snaked his way across the goal mouth to give Ottawa a 2-1 lead with his ninth goal at 17:54. He patiently held onto the puck, reached around Vokoun, and tucked it in shortly after the Capitals killed a pair of overlapping penalties that gave the Senators a two-man advantage for 51 seconds.
