Bolts Come Back For Hard Fought Point VS Caps

(AP) — The Washington Capitals blew a four-goal lead Saturday night before Mike Green scored a power-play goal at 2:59 of overtime, extending the team's winning streak to seven games with a 6-5 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Alex Ovechkin scored his 27th goal to move ahead in the NHL's goal-scoring race, and the Capitals moved four points clear atop the Southeast Division, albeit after cruising way too much once they had a 5-1 lead early in the second period.

Green scored after Vincent Lecavalier was whistled for slashing Marcus Johansson, who was skating in on the crease for a clear look at a potential winning goal.

Ovechkin broke a tie with the Lightning's Steven Stamkos to take the solo spot atop the goal leaderboard for the first time this season.
