The Washington Capitals have secured the top seed in the Eastern Conference for the Stanley Cup Playoffs after a 4-2 victory against the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre on Tuesday.

      The win was clinched by Mike Richards, Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie, who hit the empty net 13 seconds before regulation time was over.

      “Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby made 28 saves for his 44th win of the season. He needs four more victories to tie Martin Brodeur for the most wins in a season (48). Brodeur set the record with the New Jersey Devils in 2006-07,” said the NHL.com.

      Russia’s goal machine, Ovi, contributed to the win bringing the Caps the top place in the Metropolitan Division.

      The Capitals jumped out to a 3-0 first period lead with Richards opening the scoring at 2:32 but let their lead slip away.

      “Ovechkin scored his 43rd on the power play at 12:22 for a 2-0 lead, putting in a sharp pass by Marcus Johansson which found Ovechkin at the backdoor to Anderson's right,” says a report at the NHL.com

      “Backstrom scored off the rush at 14:37, finishing off a three-way passing play with Jason Chimera and Jay Beagle to give Washington a 3-0 lead,” the report continues.

      The Capitals have 109 points in 72 games. The Dallas Stars, their closest pursuers have 97 points after 74 games.
