Capitals ground Jets as 'Ovie' nets #600

WASHINGTON—Make it 600 goals and counting for Alex Ovechkin, and give the Washington Capitals two more points for the tough playoff race in the Eastern Conference.

Ovechkin scored twice in another historic performance, and Evgeny Kuznetsov had the overtime winner, as the Capitals returned to first place by edging the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 last night.
