Capitals picking up pace

WASHINGTON --- Mike Green had two goals and an assist, Michael Nylander and Brooks Laich both added a goal and an assist and the Washington Capitals defeated the Ottawa Senators 6-3 on Tuesday.

 

Green, Nylander and Laich each scored during a four-goal first period for Washington, which beat Ottawa for the second time in four days. The Capitals topped the Senators 8-6 on Saturday.

The Capitals stumbled to a 6-14-1 record at the start before Bruce Boudreau took over for Glen Hanlon as coach. Boudreau has pushed the Capitals to play more aggressively, to forecheck tougher and create scoring chances to spark the once-dormant offense.

Washington has improved to 16-19-5.
