WASHINGTON - The Washington Capitals dropped five in a row before putting together a winning streak that now stands at three.One of these days, perhaps the Columbus Blue Jackets will experience a similar reversal of fortune.Alex Ovechkin and Marcus Johansson each scored two goals, and the Capitals beat Columbus 4-2 on Tuesday night to extend the Blue Jackets skid to nine games.Braden Holtby stopped 24 shots, including all 11 in the third period, to help the Capitals reach a season high in consecutive victories.The game is all about momentum, Washington coach Barry Trotz said.The Blue Jackets know this too well. Unfortunately, theyre stumbling in the wrong direction.Columbus has been outscored 39-18 during an 0-8-1 stretch that began Oct. 24. The winless drought equals the longest in franchise history, set in December 2009 when the club went 0-7-2.Weve been doing good things every single game, but we have to find a way to win, centre Ryan Johansen said. We create opportunities for ourselves and hit a crossbar or miss the net or they make a good save. Well just look at the positives and try to build off that.Even though the Capitals took the lead for good on a goal by Johansson with 66 seconds elapsed, they never could pull away even after Ovechkin scored twice during a nine-minute span of the first period to make it 3-1.It was a one-goal game before Johansson scored on a wraparound at 14:39 of the third period to clinch it.We showed a lot of character tonight, defenceman Mike Green said.Cam Atkinson and David Savard scored for the injury-plagued Blue Jackets, who cant help but wonder if every game during this stretch is a replay of the one that preceded it.Youve got to get that winning feeling back, defenceman James Wisniewski said. You get that here we go again attitude, but you cant think like that. The mind is powerful, and if you think bad things are going to happen, they will.The Blue Jackets played a seventh straight game without top goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky, who has a broken finger. Curtis McElhinney started in his place and was pelted with 31 shots in falling to 0-5-1.Columbus was without injured forwards Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov and Mark Letestu. In addition, defenceman Jack Johnson completed a three-game suspension for an illegal check.Those remaining are trying their best to make up the difference.I dont think its a lack of effort, Wisniewski said. Its some kind of weird funk. I really dont have any answers.After being outscored 4-0 in the first period of their last game, a 7-4 loss to Tampa Bay, the Blue Jackets again struggled during the opening 20 minutes.Soon after Johansson scored his seventh goal of the season from the left side of the net, the Capitals went to a 5-on-3 power play. Ovechkin connected from the left circle with a shot that soared over McElhinneys right shoulder at 7:49.Columbus closed to 2-1 at 9:52 on a wrist shot by Atkinson off a faceoff in the Washington zone.But Ovechkin struck again at 16:04, taking a drop pass from Jay Beagle and beating McElhinney with a blast between the circles for his eighth goal.The Blue Jackets have been outscored 18-10 in the first period this season.Savard registered the lone goal of the second period with a shot that Holtby kicked into the net with the back of his skate during a collision with a teammate and Columbus centre Boone Jenner.But the goalie made up for it with a flawless third period.Braden had to give us a period, and he did, Trotz said. He bailed us out in the third. Hopefully, thats something that gets him rolling forward, something he can build his game on.Notes: Washington has won four straight at home against Columbus. ... The Blue Jackets are 1-7-1 when the opposition scores first. ... Nicklas Backstrom and Andre Burakovsky each had two assists for Washington. ... The Capitals have seven power-play goals in their last seven games. James Rodriguez Jersey . Old times for a defence that has looked just plain old recently? "No," safety Ryan Clark said. "We used to be much better than that. Cristiano Ronaldo Jersey . Gerald Green and Miles Plumlee? Green had bounced around the NBA when he wasnt playing overseas. The Pacers gave up on Plumlee after just one season. Now Green and Plumlee are key cogs in the Suns surprising breakout season. http://www.realmadridfcprohop.us/Jesus-Vallejo-Real-Madrid-Jersey/. The Incheon-based tea, of the Korea Baseball Organization said the deal for the 35-year-old Scott included a $50,000 signing bonus. Scott reached the major leagues with Houston in 2005 and hit 23 homers or more for Baltimore each year from 2008-10. Marco Asensio Jersey .Y. - Carey Price had an early feeling that one goal might be enough to settle the latest matchup between his Montreal Canadiens and longtime Original Six foe, the New York Rangers. Luca Zidane Jersey .com Tour title, closing with a 6-under 64 for a four-stroke victory. The 22-year-old former North Texas player finished at 12-under 268 at Panama Golf Club and earned $112,500 to jump from seventh to second on the money list with $171,500.Leading up to SportsCentres Year In Review on Christmas Eve, TSN and TSN.ca look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013. Today, we look back at the end of the NHL lockout and the Chicago Blackhawks winning their second Stanley Cup in four seasons. After a 113-day lockout between the NHL and NHLPA, a tentative Collective Bargaining Agreement was reached in the early hours of Jan. 6. Days later, a 48-game schedule was released with a start date of Jan. 19 and teams had 10 days to prepare. The Chicago Blackhawks seemed to have no problem with the quick start and made it halfway through the shortened campaign before finally losing a game in regulation - in their 25th game of the season. They would lose just six more games in regulation during the season en route to winning the Presidents Trophy. The Blackhawks easily advanced past the first round of the playoffs, defeating the Minnesota Wild in five games. In the second round, however, they faced their first major challenge of the season. After four games with the Detroit Red Wings, the Blackhawks found themselves down 3-1 in the series and on the brink of elimination. They had lost three straight games for the first time in their entire season. With their backs against the wall, the Blackhawks beat the Red Wings 4-1 on home ice to set up Game 6 in Detroit. There, the Blackhawks overcame a one-goal deficit after 40 minutes to win 4-3 and force a seventh and deciding game. After regulation of Game 7, the two teams were tied 1-1. Then defencemaan Brent Seabrook scored just three minutes into overtime to send Blackhawks to the Western Conference Final.dddddddddddd. Compared to the Red Wings, the Los Angeles Kings gave the Blackhawks little trouble. The series ended in five games with Patrick Kane scoring in double overtime. The Blackhawks met the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Final and a tone for the series was quickly set. The two teams battled to a 3-3 tie after three periods, thanks to the Blackhawks recovering from a two-goal deficit in the third period. The two teams remained scoreless through two overtime periods until, finally, 12 minutes into the third extra frame, Andrew Shaw tipped a shot past Tuukka Rask to give the Blackhawks a 1-0 series lead. The Bruins won Game 2 in overtime and picked up a 2-0 shutout win in Game 3 to take a 2-1 series lead. The Blackhawks once again battled back with a 6-5 overtime victory in Game Four to make it a best-of-three set. The Blackhawks took the series lead back in Game 5 with a 3-1 victory and then travelled back to Boston with a chance to win the championship. With two minutes to play in Game 6, the Blackhawks were down 2-1 and Game 7 appeared to be in the cards. However, the Blackhawks pulled goaltender Corey Crawford and Bryan Bickell scored to tie the game at 2-2. Then, just 17 seconds later, David Bolland scored the series-winning goal with 59 seconds left on the clock. The Blackhawks were crowned Stanley Cup champions and Kane was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy.
