Watch: Alex Ovechkin scores spectacular backhand goal vs. Devils
Alex Ovechkin reminded everyone on Saturday that, while not a top-five goal-scorer so far this season, he is still very much capable of doing Alex Ovechkin things.
The goal extended Washington's lead to 4-0, which ended up being the game's final margin. It was Ovechkin's 15th tally of the year and his first since Dec. 9, when he scored two goals against the Lightning.
The Capitals improved to 16-10-6 with the win. The Devils, three spots below Washington in the Metropolitan Division, fell to 12-17-6.
