Ovechkin's OT goal pushes Caps over Wings

(TSX / STATS) -- DETROIT -- Alex Ovechkin scored on the power play 1:56 into overtime to give the Washington Capitals a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Red Wings.

Ovechkin hammered a slap shot into the top corner on the glove side past Wings goalie Petr Mrazek for his NHL-leading 10th goal of the season, ending Washington's three-game losing streak and extending Detroit's losing skid to three games.

T.J. Oshie sent the game to overtime with 1:01 left in regulation when he stuffed the puck past Mrazek (33 saves) from the edge of the goal crease during a Capitals power play.
