Caps ice Maple Leafs

February 04, 2006

WASHINGTON - Alexander Ovechkin picked up an assist in his return to the Washington lineup, Chris Clark and Ben Clymer each had a goal and an assist and the Capitals beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-1 Friday night.

Ovechkin, the NHL's offensive player of the month for January, missed Washington's last game with a groin injury. The Capitals lost 5-3 to the New York Islanders without their start rookie.

He took a pounding most of the night, but with an assist on Mike Green's first career goal in the first period, Ovechkin moved within one point of Washington's rookie scoring record.
