Journeyman Brad Malone had a goal and an assist for his first NHL points in more than six years. Cody Ceci also scored. T.J. Oshie scored twice, including the tying goal with 1.8 seconds left in regulation, and Nicklas Backstrom, also connected for Washington. Alex Ovechkin was kept off the board with a chance to pass Jaromir Jagr for third place on the NHL goals list.
