Three quick goals lift Canucks over Capitals on Sunday

Three goals in the span of 1 minute, 47 seconds in the second period proved to be Washington's undoing Sunday as the visiting Capitals fell to the Vancouver Canucks, 4-2, in the final game of a three-stop trip to Western Canada. Center Nick Bonino scored one goal and assisted on the game-winner to help the Canucks (5-3-0) rally from a 1-0 hole. Rookie Liam O'Brien scored his first NHL goal later that period to cut the deficit to one for the Capitals (4-2-2), but Canucks right wing Radim Vrbata scored an empty-netter with one minute left in regulation to seal Washington's fate. For the fourth straight game, Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin was held to two shots on goal and kept off the scoresheet. This is the longest period in which the reigning "Rocket" Richard Trophy winner has shot two or fewer times each game since a four-game stretch in early 2012.
