RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Alex Ovechkin scored goals in bunches once again - until the shootout. Then it was up to Jakub Vrana to clinch an important victory for the Washington Capitals.

Ovechkin's three goals gave him an NHL-best 28 this season and nine in his last five games. His 13-game point streak matched his career high set in 2006-07.
