Despite being demoted to Washington's fourth line, right winger Joel Ward had two goals Saturday night to power the Capitals to a 3-1 victory over the host Calgary Flames. "I've known Joel a long time. Sometimes Joel recognizes when he can go a little better. It's a great response from him," said Capitals coach Barry Trotz, who worked with Ward for three seasons in Nashville earlier in his career. First-line center Nicklas Backstrom also scored for Washington (4-1-2), while former Capitals defenseman Dennis Wideman had the lone goal for the Flames (5-4-1). Washington's Alex Ovechkin, who had scored five times in his first four games, was blanked for the third consecutive game.
