BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Alex Ovechkin scored once in regulation and again in a shootout to help the Washington Capitals rally for a 4-3 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night. Matt Hendricks also scored for Washington in the shootout, while Capitals goalie Braden Holtby stopped both of Buffalo's shootout attempts. Mike Green capped a two-goal third-period rally and forced overtime by scoring with 40 seconds left. Troy Brouwer had a goal and assist for Washington, which bounced back from a 3-2 loss to the Islanders on Tuesday to improve to 4-1 in its past five.
