The Washington Capitals have snapped their mini two game losing skid after beating the Arizona Coyotes in Glendale. The 4-2 late night victory featured goals from two young wingers stepping up in the absence of a few key injured teammates and a solid performance in net from a Caps rookie netminder.
The Caps and Coyotes both recorded 29 shots on goal, but the Caps barely edged out the five-on-five shot attempts battle 55 to 54.
Alex Ovechkin has recorded his 5,000th career shot in his 1,031st career game. That sets the record for the fastest player in NHL to reach 5,000 shots, besting Marcel Dionne's previous record (1,215) by 184 games.
