Caps lose, 5-4 in overtime; Ovechkin leaves with injury
R.J. Umberger scored his second goal of the game on a power play 1:45 into overtime to lift the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets to a 5-4 overtime victory against the Washington Capitals. Blue Jackets left wing Raffi Torres scored twice in the final 6 1/2 minutes of regulation, including the tying goal with 23 seconds left to send the game into overtime. Rick Nash had a goal and two assists for Columbus (6-5-1). Washington (8-2-3) played much of the game without Alex Ovechkin, who left early in the second period with an upper-body injury; he didn't return, and his status is day-to-day.
