Wild lose in Shootout to Washington

WASHINGTON (AP)-- NICKLAS BACKSTROM SCORED THE ONLY GOAL IN A SHOOTOUT, AND THE WASHINGTON CAPITALS RALLIED TO BEAT THE MINNESOTA WILD 3-2 THURSDAY NIGHT FOR THEIR FOURTH STRAIGHT VICTORY. BRADEN HOLTBY HAD 33 SAVES FOR THE CAPITALS BEFORE BLANKING THE WILD DURING THE SHOOTOUT. HOLTBY OUTPLAYED MINNESOTA GOALTENDER JOSH HARDING, WHO STOPPED 25 SHOTS. AFTER TWO PLAYERS FROM EACH SIDE FAILED TO SCORE IN THE SHOOTOUT, BACKSTROM BEAT HARDING WITH A WRIST SHOT THAT WENT INTO THE UPPER LEFT CORNER OF THE NET. HOLTBY THEN DENIED CHARLIE COYLE TO WIN IT. COYLE AND MIKAEL GRANLUND SCORED IN REGULATION FOR THE WILD, WHOSE THREE-GAME WINNING STREAK ENDED. ALEX OVECHKIN AND MARCUS JOHANSSON HAD WASHINGTON'S GOALS, WHICH CAME EARLY AND LATE.
