Artem Anisimov Authentic Jersey His 27 goals are tied with Tampa Bay Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov for the NHL lead. "I truly think when he hits his spot, it's kind of an almost unsaveable shot," Hutton said. "I don't think it's physically possible when he picks his spot to be able to save it. You have to be cheating or get a piece, and he made a great shot and that's what he's been doing ever since he's been in the League." Oshie set up Eller's go-ahead goal when his shot from the right wing went off Hutton's pads to Eller at the left post. Gunnarsson Artemi Panarin Authentic Jersey tied it 3-3 when his point shot deflected past Holtby off Ovechkin's left elbow at 15:51. "It was kind of bad shot," Gunnarsson said. "I ended up in a weird spot there, but I just threw it in there and I saw the guys on the bench celebrating. I got lucky on that one." Brett Connolly gave the Capitals a 1-0 lead at 13:15 of the first period when he tipped an Ovechkin shot. Tarasenko scored at 1:18 of the second period to tie it 1-1. St. Louis went ahead at 5:02 of the second when Steen tipped Brayden Schenn's one-timer from the right circle. The goal ended an 0-for-21 drought for the Blues on the power play. Holtby made two crucial Bobby Hull Authentic Jersey saves late in the game. He stopped Magnus Paajarvi from the slot with 1:55 left in the third after a drop pass from Patrik Berglund. He then got across to deny Berglund at 1:47 of overtime off a centering pass from Colton Parayko. The Capitals had not played since a 5-4 overtime win against the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday, and the rust showed in the second period. The Blues had the first 12 shots on goal and scored twice. "We have days off and hard practices, but the game is a different speed," Ovechkin said. "First period was very good for us. In the second, we didn't control the game, and [Holtby] was outstanding." Seven of Washington's past nine games have gone past regulation, and it is 5-0-2 in those games. "Maybe not the best game for us execution-wise and system-wise," Backstrom said. "But we can build off this. Now we're playing every other day before the (NHL All-Star Game) break (from Jan. 26-30) again. Just got to keep going."
