Ovechkin scores twice, Capitals beat Rangers 4-3 in OT

WASHINGTON (AP) It takes something special for a shot by Alex Ovechkin to surprise a goaltender.

That's exactly what happened to Henrik Lundqvist on Wednesday night when Ovechkin scored the first of two power-play goals to help the Washington Capitals beat the New York Rangers 4-3 in overtime.

John Carlson essentially bounced a pass to Ovechkin in such an awkward position that Lundqvist didn't expect him to get it on net and again was beaten.
