Goaltender Braden Holtby says he wanted to be a bigger part of the Capitals' comeback win Tuesday night.
Quick news and notes from Tuesday's morning skate at Kettler Capitals Iceplex as the Caps [16-12-2] face the Lightning [17-10-2] at Verizon Center [7 p.m., CSN]:
Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin scored four times for the third time in his career to lead the Caps to a wild 6-5 win over the Lightning.
Alex Ovechkin scored four goals and Nicklas Backstrom recorded one goal and four assists, spearheading an incredible rally back from a 3-0 deficit in the most entertaining regular season game in Chinatown in years.
The Capitals are looking to win their third in a row, while the Lightning attempt to turn things around.
Thanks to a strong showing from rookie goaltender Philipp Grubauer to go along with a three-goal second period, the Captials defeated the Rangers 4-1 at Madison Square Garden.

Braden Holtby has played in 24 of the Caps' 29 games this season. That's why Philipp Grubauer will be facing the Rangers tonight [7 p.m., CSN]
The Capitals recalled defenseman Dmitry Orlov from the Hershey Bears three days after his agent requested a trade.
The Capitals are listing Michal Neuvirth as 'day-to-day' with a lower body injury.
Mike Green scored in the fourth round of a shootout and former Belleville Bulls goalie Philipp Grubauer stopped all four Winnipeg attempts in the Washington Capitals' 4-3 victory over the Jets on Saturday night in the exhibition opener for both teams.
The Caps recalled Philipp Grubauer to serve as Braden Holtby's backup Sunday night at the Philadelphia Flyers, and the training staff will keep an eye on Neuvirth.
Braden Holtby was clearly the man, starting 13 of the Washington Capitals' past 14 games, but Neuvirth will get the nod Thursday night at the Carolina Hurricanes.
The 22-year-old center scored two power-play goals in the third period to lift the Islanders to a 5-2 win over Washington, ending the Capitals' three-game winning streak.
"I had a lot of fun," Grubauer said after leading the Caps to their fourth win in five games and coming within 1:53 of his first NHL shutout. "Olie [Kolzig] told me [I was starting] after the game on Saturday. It's basically like every other game. Once the puck drops it's business. It felt like I was in the zone and the guys helped me out."
"It was a dream come true. I dreamed about this since I started playing hockey," Grubauer said. "It was amazing. I try to step up and give those guys confidence and show the organization that I can do something as well."
