WASHINGTON -- Capitals coach Adam Oates took a different approach after his teams third straight loss. Instead of dwelling on the negative, Oates focused on what was good about the clubs recent play. It worked. One day after Oates positive power talk during practice, the Capitals scored three goals in less than four minutes of the second period en route to a 4-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Monday night. Joel Ward, Alex Ovechkin and Troy Brouwer scored 3:55 apart -- including two power-play goals -- and Washington was on its way to snapping its skid. "We feel confidence here. Of course we were kind of upset about the beginning of the year," Ovechkin said. "We win only one game." Ovechkin scored his sixth goal and added an assist in the outburst. Nicklas Backstrom assisted on all three goals for Washington (2-4). "Finally, we get the lead and we play with the lead like most of the game," Ovechkin said. With the score tied at 1, Ward took advantage of a power play and scored his first goal of the season at 10:06. Ovechkin added his sixth goal 3:12 later, and Brouwer -- during another power play -- netted his first 43 seconds after that. Brooks Laich scored Washingtons first goal of the game. The Capitals scored four times on 20 shots against Edmonton goalie Jason LaBarbera. The Oilers have given up at least four goals in each of their six games. "I thought everything was going fine until we brought a puck back into our zone, and that basically started a few dominos to fall," Edmonton coach Dallas Eakins said. The Oilers (1-4-1) have four games left on their season-high six-game road trip. "It goes back to the adage of every moment in the game is important. For three minutes we went backward, and it cost us the game," Eakins said. Boyd Gordon and Will Acton, with the first of his NHL career, scored for Edmonton. The Oilers took a 1-0 lead 9:48 in on Gordons fourth goal. Justin Schultz recovered a loose puck near centre ice, skated down the right wing and sent a pass to Gordon, who flipped a shot past goalie Braden Holtby. Just 3:53 later, Laich scored his first of the season when he fired a shot past LaBarbera. Ward gave the Capitals a 2-1 lead one second after Brouwer and Edmontons David Perron returned to the ice following roughing penalties. Washington had been working with a 4-on-3 power play, and patiently moved the puck in front of the net until Ward scored. Barely three minutes later, it was Ovechkins turn, and then Brouwers. "We were kind of in a tough spot after last game, 1-4, losing ground a little bit," Brouwer said. "Guys are always a little bit upset when theyre not producing because they feel like theyre not helping their team out as much as they could, especially if youre expected to score." Ovechkin was called for interfering with Mike Brown at 12:19 of the third period. A melee ensued with Ovechkin, Brown, the Oilers Luke Gazdic, and Washingtons Mike Green and Karl Alzner all sent off the ice for various infractions. Acton cut the Oilers deficit to 4-2 with 1:42 left in the game. By then, the Capitals had been playing with a three-goal lead for 24 minutes, and that helped boost their confidence. "Youre not scared to make mistakes. Youre not as tentative," Holtby said. NOTES: Edmonton F Nail Yakupov was a healthy scratch for the second straight game.

Last week, six days after sustaining a concussion, franchise quarterback Mike Reilly is rolled out by the Edmonton Eskimos in a must win game against the Montreal Alouettes. The Eskimos muzzled their “Top Dog”, virtually handcuffing the young quarterback by limiting what he does best: his ability to run, improvise, and attack a defence with his unmatched will to do whatever it takes to win. That plan went south in a hurry and by half time, Reilly was back in his cage. The next quarterback up for the Eskimos wasnt Kerry Joseph, who has 11 years of experience under his belt. Joseph only had two reps all week during practice. Im scratching my head right now. The Eskimos had planned all week long to go with Jonathan Crompton, a young and promising quarterback from the University of Tennessee. Problem was, Crompton had only thrown 22 career passes in the CFL heading into that must win game! Let me recap: you toil with the decision to start your franchise quarterback after he sustained a concussion just six days ago, limit his package – removing what he does best, dont practice or play your experienced gunslinger, and go with a virtual rookie in a must win game! Wow, I know theres no giving an inch or concessions in football, but on behalf of the dwindling fan base, what is going on? Now this week, with the playoffs virtually out of reach and the season almost over, you want to remove the muzzle on Reilly and set him free to attack the game – likke he should have been last week – and risk further meaningless injury? I dont get it! Now is the time to get Crompton the reps he was given last week.dddddddddddd Again, Im scratching my head here. I know there is a disconnect between management and coaches with who is second on the depth chart and thats why we saw Crompton last week instead of Joseph in a must win game. But how about dealing with your No. 1 quarterback properly? If he was cleared to play last week by third party doctors, then why the muzzle and shackles in a must win game? Manage play calling to keep him out of harms way and make certain he was not exposed to protection breakdowns. What? Are we still talking about the same team? Reilly is an old school quarterback. Hes a warrior and hes proven he can compete, win, and lead this franchise. Its been a long season; rest your star! Now is the time, and for the next four weeks, to see what you have in Crompton. If Joseph is not in the cards for the future, move Jacory Harris onto the active roster and see what hes got to offer too! Head coach Kavis Reed knows all about the seriousness of injuries in football; he was forced to retire prematurely with a neck injury. Not only that, Reed is as passionate as they come in the coaching ranks. Hes uniquely dialed in to his players, both on and off the field. Simply put, he cares! So do I! Sometimes you are too close to the trees to see through the forest. So I ask, why Reilly now? More head scratching... ' ' '
