Ovechkin scores game-winner as Capitals sweep Devils 3-2

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Alex Ovechkin broke a second-period tie and the streaking Washington Capitals welcomed back top goaltender Ilya Samsonov from an extended absence because of COVID-19 with a 3-2 victory over the skidding New Jersey Devils on Sunday.

Samsonov made 19 saves and looked shaky at times in helping Washington win its third straight game and sixth of eight (6-1-1). Nicklas Backstrom and Jakub Vrana also scored as the Caps swept a weekend series at the Prudential Center.

"It was great to see him back there and it was great to get him a win in the first game he is back to," Backstrom said of Samsonov.
