Alex Ovechkin got the Capitals to within one midway through the third period with a highlight-reel goal.

Ovechkin split Rangers defensemen Dan Girardi and Ryan McDonagh, and then beat Henrik Lundqvist top corner while falling.

“The guy pushed him to the outside, there were almost three guys around him and he still got a shot off his knees,” said Rangers coach Alain Vigneault. “He’s a great player.”

Chimera on Ovechkin’s goal: “Nothing surprises me anymore with that guy. It was one of the best I think I’ve seen from him so far.”
