wins and losses even. Lets get back to playing
WASHINGTON -- Washington Capitals coach Adam Oates wants his team to focus less on power plays and more on even-strength situations. Tyson Barrie Jersey . "Its tough to tell Ovi about that," Oates said. For one night, Oates will give Alex Ovechkin a reprieve. Ovechkin scored two goals, including one on a power play and assisted on Nicklas Backstroms game-tying power-player goal at 14:10 of the third. He also scored in a shootout, and the Washington Capitals rallied from an early three-goal deficit to beat the Calgary Flames 5-4 on Thursday night. Washington was 2 for 3 on the power play. Michal Neuvirth, who replaced an ineffective Braden Holtby, made 27 saves and stopped Sven Baertschi and Jiri Hudler in the shootout. "Youre looking for some sort of momentum change," Oates said of switching goalies after Calgary took a 3-0 lead in the first period. "The time it takes to do that, maybe a new guy, the guys start talking among themselves. Some coaches yell. I just kind of said things to guys. Youre just looking for them to re-group." Marcus Johansson assisted on all three second-period goals for Washington, which earned its first win after dropping the opener to the Blackhawks on Tuesday night. Connor Carrick and Nicklas Backstrom also scored for Washington. David Jones, Lee Stempniak, Hudler and Lance Bouma scored for Calgary. Karri Ramo made 35 saves. Calgary, which has missed the playoffs the past four seasons, has lost four straight season openers. "Very happy with the effort, obviously disappointed with the result," Flames coach Bob Hartley said. "I told the boys, Its one thing to play in the NHL, and there a different way to win in the NHL. "Were not going to start tonight on Game 1 saying, Oh, were young and this. Theres absolutely no excuse." The Capitals fought back in the second period, scoring three goals -- the second two by Ovechkin and first by Carrick, who got behind the Flames defence and had a clear path to the net. David Jones, acquired in an off-season trade with the Colorado Avalanche, gave Calgary a 1-0 lead at 5:18 of the first period. About three minutes later, Lance Boumas check left Washington defenceman Jack Hillen injured on the ice while Tom Wilson had a fight with Bouma. Wilson and Bouma both connected punches before Wilson flipped Bouma to the ice. Both received five-minute majors. Hillen, who suffered a lower-body injury and did not return, was helped up and off the ice by teammates. Ovechkin escorted Hillen, who leaned on a trainer, across the ice to the bench. Oates said Hillen was at the hospital "is going to be out for a bit." Stempniak made it 2-0 with the teams playing 4-on-4 midway through the period. Hudler added a power-play goal with a slap shot at 16:22 of the first. Oates said he believed his team was still reeling from its loss Tuesday, when Chicago earned a 6-4 win. "I think we were really flat coming out. I really do," Oates said. "I didnt expect it, but I really thought we were. And you know what? It was their first night. They were flying." Notes: Oates said Holtby would start when the Capitals play the Stars on Saturday. "Everybody has hiccups," Oates said. "Everybody." . The Capitals claimed defenceman Alexander Urbom off waivers from the New Jersey Devils and assigned centre Michael Latta to the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League. Urbom, a native of Sweden, has two goals and nine penalty minutes in 14 career NHL games. He had 64 penalty minutes in 68 games with the AHLs Albany Devils last season. Latta made his NHL debut against the Blackhawks on Tuesday. ... The Olympic torch and outfit worn by Ovechkin during his portion of the torch relay in advance of the Sochi 2014 Olympics was schedule to be displayed on the concourse during the game. ... Three first responders from the Metropolitan Police First District, the area that includes the Capitol, received a rousing ovation when introduced before the national anthem. Earlier in the day, a Capitol Police officer was injured during a car chase from the White House past the Capitol. Joe Sakic Jersey . He missed a few fairways, putted off a green and made a handful of bogeys. Matt Duchene Avalanche Jersey . All of the games arent created equal and with bowl season kicking off Saturday with the first four matchups, its time to rank them from best to "35th most exciting.ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The San Jose Sharks were already reeling, weary at the end of this rough nine-game road trip. Then their coach took a stick to the head, and they coughed up a late lead. Home sweet home, indeed. Jed Ortmeyers first goal of the season put the Minnesota Wild ahead with 4:13 left in a 4-3 victory on Sunday, sending the Sharks back to San Jose with a 2-6-1 record on this 16-day journey. "Nobody is feeling sorry for us, thats for sure. We just have to work our way out of it," said captain Joe Thornton, who gave the Sharks a 2-0 lead just 3:21 into the game after Tommy Wingels scored first. They fell flat in the second period, after coach Todd McLellan was inadvertently struck by Wild defenceman Marco Scandellas stick in front of the bench after he was hit by Jamie McGinn of the Sharks. After staying down for a bit, McLellan walked gingerly to the locker room and didnt return. He didnt need stitches and travelled home with the team, but he was in too much discomfort to address the media afterward. "I did think we were on our heels for a little bit. It was just an emotional moment for everyone, to kind of have that go on," assistant coach Matt Shaw said. "In retrospect, we probably should have tried to delay some things for a little bit longer." The Sharks were refocused in the third period and took the lead with 11:15 remaining in the game when Brent Burns one-timed a power-play slap shot past his former Wild teammates and goalie Niklas Backstrom. He skated back to the bench with a big smile on his face, but thats not the mood the Sharks finished with. Matt Cullen scored the tying goal with a deflection of Scandellas try from the blue line. The puck bounced in the goal like a basketball with 5:27 remaining. Then just 74 seconds later, Ortmeyer sliced across the slot and got a stick on Jared Spurgeons long shot. "We need to do a better job of taking our men and closing out games. We just didnt finish it off tonight," McGinn said, adding: "Its going to be a long flight home. Well do some stewing about it tomorrow and probably do some video, but you know we have to get back at home here and get back on the winning side because its playoff hockey right now." The Sharkss, who lost 6-2 to the Nashville Predators on Saturday, face a four-game homestand next week. Rob Ramage Avalanche Jersey. Theyve fallen behind the Phoenix Coyotes in the Pacific Division and are only one point ahead of the eighth-place Dallas Stars in the Western Conference race. "You definitely have to work out of it. Eventually the bounces will turn," Thornton said. Cal Clutterbucks end-to-end goal, his first after 10 games without one, helped the Wild salvage something from a sluggish first period to cut the lead to 2-1. And Ortmeyer wasnt the only one who got his first score of the season. Defenceman Nick Schultzs slap shot just four seconds into a power play tied the game at 2, shortly before McLellan went down. "Its nice to chip in and be a part of the offence a little bit," Schultz said. Not only did the Wild get their defenceman to put strong shots on goal, but they got the traffic in front of the net they needed. "We had a little spark, a little energy," Ortmeyer said. The Wild had a 13-2 edge in shots on goal in the second period, but goalie Thomas Greiss made some slick saves to keep the game tied. The Wild welcomed three new players to their lineup: defenceman Kurtis Foster, right wing Nick Palmieri and left wing Stephane Veilleux. They were acquired on Friday with draft picks from the New Jersey Devils for dissatisfied defenceman Marek Zidlicky. The Wild have used an NHL-most and franchise-record 42 players this season, nearly double the active roster limit. "We had a little bit of a spark here from some new guys in the room. I think it was a game that was pretty reminiscent of the way we were at the start of the year, so thats a good sign," Clutterbuck said. "The message before the game was forget standings, forget wins and losses even. Lets get back to playing our game," Wild coach Mike Yeo said. NOTES: Schultzs last goal was on Jan. 2, 2011, a span of 101 games. This was his first power-play goal in 2 1/2 years. Ortmeyer hadnt scored since March 28, 2010. ... Thornton has 20 points in his last 14 games. ... Cullen has three goals in four games after a 15-game stretch without one. ... The Wild won three of the four meetings with the Sharks this season, two in regulation.
