Road dog Capitals steamroll Habs, 5-1

MONTREAL (AP) - Troy Brouwer and Alex Ovechkin each scored twice to lead the Washington Capitals past the sagging Montreal Canadiens 5-1 on Saturday night.

Nicklas Backstrom also scored for the Capitals, who had an eight-game winning streak stopped in Ottawa on Thursday but rebounded with their 13th win in 16 games.

They stretched their lead over second-place Winnipeg in the Southeast Division to three points with three games to play.

Ovechkin took a step toward a third Rocket Richard Trophy as the NHL's top goal scorer with his 29th and 30th of the season. He has 20 goals in his last 18 games.

Max Pacioretty spoiled Capitals goalie Braden Holtby's shutout bid when he banged in Tomas Plekanec's pass from behind the net with 5:09 left to play.
