WASHINGTON, Oct. 11 (UPI) -- Alexander Ovechkin's goal 4:20 into overtime Monday handed the Washington Capitals a 3-2 triumph over Ottawa.
Ovechkin's game-winner came after he skated down the right side of the ice and faked his way past a defender. He got off a shot that bounced along the ice and found its way through the legs of Senators goalie Pascal Leclaire.
It was the Russian superstar's third goal in two games for the Caps.
Ryan Shannon and Jarkko Ruutu found the net in the Senators' third straight loss to start the season.
Leclaire turned aside 23 shots for Ottawa.
