Alex Ovechkin scored his 26th goal and Jack Hillen got his first as the Washington Capitals stretched their winning run to five games, 3-2 over the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night.
Eric Fehr also scored for the Southwest Division-leading Capitals, who are 6-0-1 in their last seven. They are a perfect 5-0 in April, during which Ovechkin has eight goals and Nicklas Backstrom, who had two assists, has 11 points, all assists.
Lars Eller scored both goals for Montreal, which lost for only the second time in seven games. It was Montreal’s first loss to a Southeast team (11-1-0) in 2013, but the Capitals always play well at the Bell Centre, where they are 6-0-1 in their last seven visits.
