WASHINGTON (AP) -- Alex Ovechkin broke a third-period tie with another highlight-reel goal and added a power-play tally less than two minutes later in the Washington Capitals' 4-2 victory over Detroit on Saturday that extended the Red Wings' losing streak to a season-high five games.
Ovechkin looked to have overskated a feed from Viktor Kozlov along the left wing, but reached behind himself, sneaked the puck through his own legs and used defenseman Brian Rafalski as a shield before pushing a low shot past Ty Conklin with 7:08 remaining.
Ovechkin popped in Nicklas Backstrom's rebound from the left post with 5:52 left for his team-high 33rd goal.
Mike Green and Kozlov also scored for Washington, which halted a two-game losing streak. Ville Leino and Johan Franzen had Detroit's goals.
