Indeed, the Capitals played the way they wanted to on Wednesday against the Chicago Blackhawks, who have now lost five straight.

Oh, and you won 6-2 to push your winning streak to three games on the back of your scintillating top line, which combined for 11 points, including Tom Wilson's two goals and two helpers to match Ovechkin's point total for the night.

Wilson put the Capitals up 2-0 just under three minutes later, sliding a shot under a seemingly surprised Forsberg's right pad. The run kicked off when Washington used a picture-perfect, tic-tac-toe passing play to set up its first goal at the 11:54 mark, with Wilson and Ovechkin assisting on Backstrom's fourth goal of the year and his first tally since October 14.

The Blackhawks head into Wednesday night's show down with the Capitals looking to maintain their recent success against Metro division opponents as they are 10-2 in their last 12 contests but they have dropped four games in a row overall and need to shake out of their early season funk. Ovechkin scored shortly after to signal an abrubt end to Forsberg's night. "They're having some pretty good production right now".

Washington's captain now has eight goals in his past seven games. "When we got down, they just seemed to feed off it". The third goal was just showing off, Alex Ovechkin driving the net and punching in the rebound from Wilson's shot.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Adam Henrique scored his first two goals for the Ducks in his home debut, and Ryan Miller made 29 saves for his first shutout for Anaheim in victory over slumping Ottawa. Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said Crawford could return Sunday against Arizona.
