Knuble’s goal gives Caps 4-3 OT win over Chicago
Brooks Laich gave the Capitals a 3-2 lead when he scored at 6:23 of the third period. The Blackhawks forced OT when Jonathan Toews stuffed the puck into the right corer on a power play with 38.5 seconds left in the third period.
Chicago got the power play when Washington’s Marcus Johansson was called for hooking with 1:50 left in the third period. Coach Joel Quenneville quickly pulled Crawford to give the Blackhawks a two-man advantage and, despite having an empty net, the Blackhawks tied it.
The Capitals then dominated play in OT. Alex Ovechkin was all over the ice for a long stretch, and Washington outshot the Blackhawks, 6-0.
The Capitals finished with a 42-30 advantage in shots.
Notes: Gordon went 27 games without a goal; he’s now scored twice in five games. …The Capitals are the first team in NHL history to get seven or more victories from three goalies age 22 or younger. … Marian Hossa’s eight-game point streak ended in Chicago’s last game, but he started a new one with an assist. … Leddy’s goal was his first since Feb. 1.
