Ovechkin's OT goal lifts Capitals over Ducks 3-2

WASHINGTON (AP) Following a game that probably should have left Barry Trotz frazzled, the Washington Capitals' coach walked into the interview room and smiled.

"Well, that was fun," Trotz said Saturday night after Washington rallied from a two-goal deficit in the third period and beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-2 in overtime.

Alex Ovechkin scored on a slap shot at 1:58 of the extra session to give the Capitals their sixth straight win at home.
