Washington Capitals end winning streak in overtime loss

The Washington Capitals were on a hot streak for the past month or so, winning 14 games in a row which ended in a 6-5 overtime victory to the Montreal Canadians earlier tonight.

The Caps trailed behind until a come back from behind thriller in the 3rd period as  Brooks Laich tied it at 5 for Washington, scoring his third goal of the game with 18.4 seconds left.

In overtime, it was the Canadians who skated away with the W as Alex Semin missed a goal and Tomas Plekanec took the puck to the other end of the ice to score and end the Caps winning streak.

The Caps  had the longest winning streak in the NHL since the Pittsburgh Penguins set the league mark with 17 consecutive victories in 1992-93 season. Only the Pens and the 1981-82 New York Islanders (15 straight victories) have longer streaks than Washington did.
