      Howard helps Red Wings beat Capitals 4-3 in SO

      Alex Ovechkin had a game-tying goal with 7 seconds left in the third period, but Patrick Eaves scored in the seventh of the shootout to give the Detroit Red Wings a 4-3 win over the Capitals on Friday night.

      Detroit's Gustav Nyquist scored a tiebreaking goal midway through the third period, but the Red Wings couldn't prevent the NHL's goal-scoring leader from sending the game to overtime.

      The Capitals pulled their goaltender late in regulation.

      Ovechkin had time and space to wind up for a slap shot from above the circles that sent the puck past Howard and into the net to make it 3-all. Ovechkin has 39 goals this season, his highest total since scoring 50 times during the 2009-10 season.
