Ovechkin scores 701st, shootout winner as Capitals beat Jets

WASHINGTON (AP) Alex Ovechkin began the night being celebrated for what he's best at. He ended it doing something much more rare.

Ovechkin scored his 701st goal minutes after being honored for 700 and added the shootout winner to help the Washington Capitals beat the Winnipeg Jets 4-3 Tuesday for their second consecutive victory. It was just Ovechkin's 34th shootout goal in 107 attempts over his NHL career.

"Sometimes even I don't know what I'm gonna do out there," Ovechkin said. "I'll take it."
