Washington tops Chicago 5-3
(CHICAGO) – The Washington Capitals admitted they weren't at their best. Still good enough to pull out a win to start a five-game road trip. Tom Wilson broke a tie with 8:13 left and the Capitals rebounded after blowing a two-goal lead to beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-3 on Sunday night for their third straight win. Wilson beat Corey Crawford from the right edge of the crease with his third goal after he was left open and took a cross-ice pass from Carl Hagelin to put Washington up 4-3. Lars Eller added an empty-netter from his own zone with 49.3 seconds remaining. T.J. Oshie, Nic Dowd and Alex Ovechkin also scored for the Capitals and Hagelin had two assists, and Braden Holtby made 41 saves. Drake Caggiula, Dominik Kubalik and Patrick Kane connected for the Blackhawks, who rallied to tie it at 3 midway through the third. Alexander Nylander had two assists and Corey Crawford blocked 25 shots as Chicago's two-game winning streak ended. Kirby Dach, the third-overall draft pick in the 2019 draft, made his NHL debut for Chicago. The 18 year old started centering a line with Kane and Dylan Strome, and finished with 13:41 of ice time .
