There’s an old saying that “all good things must come to an end” but that can also be a two-way street. For the Capitals, bad things such as a four game losing streak came to an end and so did a recent slump for the team captain during their 4-2 win over the Wild Tuesday night in DC. 

Alex Ovechkin‘s second period tally came right from the spot that we’re all accustomed to seeing him score at, the left face-off dot. The goal came at 14:42 of the second period right after the Capitals power play ended.

Ovechkin’s goal ended a 20 game 5-on-5 scoreless drought. Overall, entering Tuesday’s contest his last goal came on the power play during their win on Feb. 19 over the Rangers.
