Ovechkin scores 2 as Capitals beat Sabres 5-1

WASHINGTON (AP) On the night Alex Ovechkin reached one milestone, his goal-scoring prowess moved him closer to another.

Ovechkin added to his NHL lead with two goals while tying the Washington record for most games played, and the Capitals beat the Buffalo Sabres 5-1 on Saturday.

"In this day and age, there are not a lot of players with the same team. Those days are probably past a little bit," Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. "He's durable. Those two combinations have had a big impact on the franchise for a long time now."
