COLUMBUS Nathan MacKinnon Jersey , Ohio (AP) — The Washington Capitals seemed a step faster than the discombobulated Columbus Blue Jackets all night long and took full advantage of some early opportunities.The result was a 4-0 win by the Capitals over the Blue Jackets on Saturday that seemed so easy it was difficult to tell at times that these were two teams fighting for the lead in the rugged Metropolitan Division. For most of the evening, the Blue Jackets didn’t look like they belonged on the same ice with the reigning Stanley Cup champions.Alex Ovechkin scored his NHL-leading 22nd goal and Braden Holtby got his 34th career shutout as the Capitals stayed atop the division, moving three points ahead of Columbus.“It probably helped that we saw what didn’t and what worked against them in the playoffs last year,” said Holtby, who picked up his second shutout of the season. “And so our team knows you can’t play a soft game against them because they’ll turn it the other way quick. Tonight we played the right way and got rewarded for it.”Travis Boyd had a goal and an assist, and Brett Connolly and Dmitrij Jaskin also scored for Washington. Holtby finished with 28 saves.Ovechkin extended his points streak to 11 straight games, with 10 goals and six assists during the stretch. He also picked up an assist on Boyd’s third-period goal.Washington coach Todd Reirden said his captain is contributing in every possible way.“A lot was made of his leadership with us winning the Stanley Cup and the role that he had in it, but his leadership during the regular season this year is the best I’ve seen,” Reirden said.“That says a lot about him and how he’s really leading the way. He’s been more vocal Authentic Alexander Wennberg Jersey , obviously his play has been exceptional, and he’s been night-in and night-out a guy who has played at both ends of the ice and gave us a chance to have success.”The Capitals, whose three-goal first period overpowered the Blue Jackets, have won two in a row and eight of their last 11.Connolly started it 1:42 into the game when he skated in on a rush and poked the puck around the back of lunging goalie Sergei Bobrovsky.Jaskin got credit for a lucky tally halfway through the period when a shot from Boyd hit Jaskin’s left skate and popped over Bobrovsky’s shoulder. It was the first goal of the year for the Washington fourth-liner.Ovechkin’s goal in the closing seconds of the first period was anything but lucky. He was left wide open in front of the net to tap in a pass from Michal Kempny.After that, Columbus coach John Tortorella had seen enough and replaced Bobrovsky with Joonas Korpisalo to start the second period, which seemed to help.After a scoreless second, Boyd got his first goal of the season late in the third to cap the scoring.Bobrovsky had 10 saves in the first period for Columbus, and Korpisalo recorded 14 the rest of the way.“I don’t see us doing the things necessary to win hockey games at crucial times, and they did Los Angeles Kings T-Shirts Womens ,” Columbus captain Nick Foligno said. “They played the right way. We were flat in the first and kind of got caught watching, and it was unacceptable.”NOTES: Columbus F Cam Atkinson had his points streak stopped at 12 games. … Columbus F Anthony Duclair was back in the lineup after being a healthy scratch the past four games.

DENVER (AP) — Colton Parayko didn’t have much room to work with as he skated into the Colorado end early in the overtime, so the defenseman used his long arm to knock the puck toward the net.His strategy paid off. Parayko’s one-handed goal 1:34 into the extra period lifted the St. Louis Blues to a 3-2 win over the Avalanche on Friday night.Vladimir Tarasenko scored and Alexander Steen also had a goal before leaving the game with an injury. Jake Allen stopped 27 shots for St. Louis.Defenseman Alex Pietrangelo also left in the third period with an undisclosed injury, but the Blues overcame the absence of two of their top players. The 6-foot-6 Parayko gave St. Louis the win when he skated in against Colorado’s 5-10 defenseman Samuel Girard and poked the puck past Semyon Varlamov with one hand. The goal, his fourth, ended Colorado’s six-game winning streak.“It was one-on-one and I hesitated a little bit but then I saw an opening so I thought I’d take it,” Parayko said. “It was a good opportunity to try to take some ice. Kept pushing the puck forward.”Nikita Zadorov and Mikko Rantanen scored and Varlamov had 34 saves for the Avalanche. Colorado has earned at least one point in its last nine games.“It’s a big point, it’s an important point Sam Reinhart Jersey ,” Colorado coach Jared Bednar said. “We would’ve liked to have two, but sometimes that’s the way it goes.”St. Louis took a 2-0 lead on first-period goals by Tarasenko and Steen, but Zadorov got Colorado back into it with his fourth goal 1:08 into the second period.Things heated up after that. Steen’s hard check on Nathan MacKinnon at the Colorado blue line upset Avalanche defenseman Erik Johnson. He got his elbow up on a hit to Steen moments later, igniting a scrum in the Colorado crease. When order was restored, Johnson was given an elbowing major and a game misconduct.Steen left with what the Blues said was an upper-body injury and didn’t return. St. Louis interim coach Craig Berube didn’t have an update on either injured player.“It’s hard to lose those guys … but we have to play not only for ourselves but those guys too,” Tarasenko said. “I think you saw the response today. It’s a hot team, they play well at home, and it’s a tough rink to play in. It’s a great win.”The Avalanche played the last 36 minutes with just five defensemen.“To me, it’s a 2-minute penalty Zemgus Girgensons Jersey ,” Bednar said of Johnson’s game misconduct.Colorado tied it early in the third period when Girard’s shot nearly trickled in and defenseman Joel Edmundson’s attempt to clear it went off the goalie’s pads to Rantanen, who knocked it in for his 11th of the season.Oskar Sundqvist was awarded a penalty shot at 12:37 of the second period but the puck slipped off of his stick as he tried to shoot it by Varlamov.Both teams had chances later in the third to break the tie. Colin Wilson nearly cashed in but Allen made a lunging save with 7:23 left.Zach Sanford and Ivan Barbashev had chances in the final 20 seconds, but Varlamov made big saves to send it to overtime.“We came back and tied the game and had a chance to win the game in the third period,” Varlamov said. “We had some good moments to score the goal, we just couldn’t put the puck in the net. Tough loss.”NOTES: Edmundson had two assists for St. Louis. … The Avalanche recalled D Mark Alt from the AHL Colorado Eagles on Friday.
