Capitals hope line switch helps versus hot Lightning

WASHINGTON -- Earlier this week, Washington Capitals coach Barry Trotz was asked why he had not paired Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom on the same line this season.

"Don't feel like it," Trotz told reporters.

But Trotz did feel like it Wednesday night and the result was a 5-2 win for Washington at home over the Ottawa Senators. Ovechkin scored with an assist from Backstrom to give the team a 2-0 lead with five seconds left in the first period.
