Wilson and Ovechkin lead Capitals past Blackhawks | 6-2

Oh, and you won 6-2 to push your winning streak to three games on the back of your scintillating top line, which combined for 11 points, including Tom Wilson's two goals and two helpers to match Ovechkin's point total for the night. He has played five games at Washington, four at Capital One Arena and one at Nationals Park. The second goal was a surprise, Tom Wilson's shot off the faceoff one that Chicago's Anton Forsberg probably shouldn't have allowed. Although he hasn't played regularly behind John Gibson, Miller remained unbeaten in regulation for his new team (3-0-4).

The Blackhawks (12-11-5) shook up their lines to get some more offense, and even though they fired 39 shots at Braden Holtby, the changes didn't result in a lot of good scoring opportunities.

Chicago's leading scorer Patrick Kane (27 points) has gone two straight games without a point. Oshie missed the game after sustaining an upper-body injury Monday night against San Jose.

The Capitals dictated the game in the second half of the period when they opened up a 3-0 lead to chase Forsberg. From that moment, Ovechkin continued to rise the National Hockey League scoring ranks while Backstrom struggled to score.

In March 2016, Switzerland and Nigeria signed an agreement to redirect the stolen money back to Nigerians. The $321 million transfer is the last installment of the "Abacha loot" in Switzerland.

"It's amusing. Me and Tom have a chat today and said, 'Let's set up Backy.' And we did and he scored a goal", Ovechkin said.

Ondrej Kase also scored, and Henrique added an empty-netter to his second-period opening goal as the Ducks snapped a three-game losing streak, largely controlling a matchup of two conference finalists from last season. He's doing that. I think he's coming into his own as a player, not just a talent. Backstrom's fourth goal of the season lifted the frustration that has amounted on his shoulders throughout the drought.

The second goal was all on Forsberg.

Lance Bouma poked in a rebound of a Connor Murphy shot to make it 3-1 late in the first period, and Toews scored a breakaway goal off a turnover for the Blackhawks late in the third period to pull Chicago within 5-2.

"Obviously, we haven't been scoring three-, four-point nights every night, but I feel like we're getting better and better every day", Backstrom said.
