Alex Ovechkin’s one-timer from the left faceoff circle has been unstoppable this season for the Washington Capitals.The Russian forward scored a pair of power-play goals from his favorite spot as the Capitals beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-2 on Monday night.Ovechkin — who had his 10th multi-goal game this season — leads the NHL with 42 goals. He has scored a goal in three straight games and has 12 points (five goals Youth John Tavares Jersey , seven assists) in the past eight games. He is on pace for 57 goals, which would be the second-most in his 14-year career. He scored 65 goals in 2007-08.“We play simple, smart and move the puck well,” Ovechkin said.According to NHL.com, Ovechkin has scored 24 goals this season from the left faceoff circle. The last three have been identical — a feed from John Carlson for a one-timer.“When we use our speed it makes it difficult on other teams,” said Carlson, who had two assists to go over 300 for his career. “We’re just trying to find our looks. It is going decent for us on the power play right now.”The Capitals are 4 of 13 on the power play during their six-game road trip Nazem Kadri Jersey , where they have split the first four games. They remain in second place in the Metropolitan Division with 73 points.Coach Todd Rierden was pleased with his team’s performance on special teams, especially after they allowed two power-play goals in a 5-2 loss to Anaheim on Sunday night.“We knew going into the game that we had to play a fast game and regardless of it being back-to-back or not, we wanted to play that way and force them to defend and we were able to capitalize,” he said.Brett Connolly scored Washington’s other goal and Pheonix Copley made 26 saves for his third straight win.It was Washington’s first win at Staples Center since Dec. 14, 2005, and ends an eight-game losing streak.Alex Iafallo and Ilya Kovalchuk had third-period goals for Los Angeles, which is last in the Western Conference with 52 points and 0-3-2 in its last five.Dustin Brown had an assist for his 600th point while Jack Campbell stopped 18 shots.“They capitalized on their power play and that was the difference Danton Heinen Jersey Kids ,” Kings coach Willie Desjardins said. “We had stuff going to the net that we could have had our tips but we just didn’t get them.”Washington opened the scoring midway through the first with a pair of goals 20 seconds apart. Ovechkin put the Capitals on the board at 10:48 on a slap shot from the left faceoff circle.Connolly quickly made it 2-0 at 11:08 when he deflected Andre Burakovsky’s wrist shot past Campbell for his 14th of the season. It was the quickest back-to-back goals the Capitals have scored this season, surpassing the 21-second margin that happened Oct. 4 at Pittsburgh.Ovechkin netted his 13th power-play goal at 5:27 of the second period. It was the sixth time the Capitals have had two or more power-play goals but the first since they had two in a Dec. 11 win at Detroit.Iafallo averted a shutout when the drove to the net and buried a cross-crease pass from Brown past Copley for his 13th of the season. Iafallo has scored in two straight games for only the second time this season.Kovalchuk scored his 13th of the season at 19:32 when the Kings brought on an extra skater.NOTES: Washington RW T.J. Oshie returned to the lineup after sustaining an upper-body injury during the second period at Anaheim on Sunday. … Carlson is the third defenseman in Capitals history to reach 300 assists. He joins Calle Johansson (361) and Scott Stevens (331). … Los Angeles G Jonathan Quick was available as a backup but did not play. He missed Saturday’s game against Boston due to illness. … The Kings have allowed a power-play goal in four of the past five games.UP NEXTCapitals: Continue their road trip on Thursday night at Toronto.Kings: Travel to Nashville on Thursday night to start a four-game road trip. A year after Mike Babcock told arena staffers in Washington he’d see them a few days later for Game 7, John Tortorella claimed his Blue Jackets would be back after winning Game 6 back in Columbus.Now the trick is doing what Babcock’s Toronto Maple Leafs couldn’t last year: stave off elimination from the Capitals.”It’s about finding a way to win a hockey game right now,” Tortorella said Sunday. ”There are so many ways of winning and losing in playoff hockey, so many ebbs and flows. That’s just the way the game is.”Toronto is in the same spot as Columbus, down 3-2 in its first-round series against the Boston Bruins with Game 6 at home Monday night (7 p.m. EDT, NBCSN). The Maple Leafs held off a significant surge from the Bruins on Saturday night to avoid being eliminated in five and send the series back across the border.”You got to look forward – there’s no sense and no good in looking back Authentic Mitchell Marner Jersey ,” forward Connor Brown said. ”We’re going back to (Air Canada Centre) where we love to play. Our fans are going to be excited so right now we’re all just thinking about Game 6.”Game 6 in the Bruins-Maple Leafs series comes after Boston took a 3-1 lead in the absence of suspended Toronto center Nazem Kadri. Goaltender Frederik Andersen needed to make 42 saves to keep the Maple Leafs alive as they hope to avoid another first-round exit.The Blue Jackets are trying to do the same in their Game 6 Monday (7:30 p.m., CNBC) after losing to the Capitals in overtime Sunday in Game 5. Four of the five games between Columbus and Washington have gone to OT compared to one total in the other seven first-round series.”It’s been a crazy series,” Capitals forward Brett Connolly said. ”So much is happening. Calls and OT – it’s been fun. I think guys are enjoying it. It’s pretty nerve-wracking, but we’re going to keep pushing forward here. We know we have a good team. They have a good team, as well. It’s not going to be easy.”It’s rarely easy for the Capitals, who are 2-5 in their past five chances to eliminate an opponent and 6-11 overall in those situations in the Alex Ovechkin era. They’re also 2-5 over that time in Game 7 at home, which they’d like to avoid another incarnation of Wednesday.This is the same situation Barry Trotz’s team was in last year – an overtime-filled first-round series against Toronto – and it wrapped things up in six.”If you have a chance to eliminate a team http://www.officialmapleleafsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-morgan-rielly-jersey , you have to have that killer instinct,” Trotz said. ”You have to have that ability to close out a team. And it’s the toughest game to win because the other team is desperate. Their backs are against the wall. They’re there. They’re going to give their absolute max effort.”No one doubts max effort from the Blue Jackets or the Maple Leafs staring down elimination. Columbus outshot Washington 16-1 in the third period of Game 5, and while that kind of ice-tilting onslaught is unlikely, the Blue Jackets are going to try to push the pace and ratchet up the pressure on the Metropolitan Division champions after blowing a 2-0 series lead.”The belief in this room is incredible,” captain Nick Foligno said. ”There’s no better motivation than what we’re facing.”Tactically, the Blue Jackets need to cash in on the power play after going 0 for their past 13. Goaltender Braden Holtby and Washington’s penalty kill have been the difference in the series.”The penalty kill has been a major factor for us in the last few games,” Trotz said. ”I think as a group Nikita Zaitsev Jersey Kids , they’ve all stepped up. I don’t think I can single out anybody. They’ve all stepped up. The penalty kill is as good as the five guys that you have, your four and your goaltender. They’ve been very committed there.”WAITING IT OUTThe Vegas Golden Knights and San Jose Sharks will meet in the second round of the Pacific Division bracket, while the Winnipeg Jets await the winner of the Nashville-Colorado series. In the East, the Atlantic Division-champion Tampa Bay Lightning finished off New Jersey on Saturday and will face Toronto or Boston in the second round.—AP Sports Writers Mitch Stacy in Columbus, Ohio, and Jimmy Golen in Boston contributed.—
