Ovechkin returns after puck to face, Caps snap Wild's streak

WASHINGTON (AP) Alex Ovechkin got stitched up, and so did the Washington Capitals after a rough road trip.

Ovechkin returned after taking a puck to the face and T.J. Oshie had a goal and an assist as the Capitals snapped out of a recent funk and ended the Minnesota Wild's winning streak at four with a 3-1 victory Saturday night.

Bloodied and sporting a few stitches on his lip, Ovechkin shook it off and had an assist to help Washington end its two-game skid.
