Holmstrom power play goal helps Red Wings edge Caps

</head> <body> <p>DETROIT (Reuters) - Tomas Holmstrom broke a third period tie with a power play goal as the Detroit Red Wings beat the Washington Capitals 3-2 on Saturday and consigned the visitors to their third successive defeat.</p> <p>Holmstrom lifted the Red Wings to their second win in a row after an 0-2 start when he scored with just under seven minutes remaining in the game.</p> <p>"I was coming in on the right side, Pavel (Datsyuk) got the puck on the left side and I pretty much knew the pass was going to come," Holmstrom told reporters. "I just tried to get in good position and I put it high up."</p> <p>The goal came after a hooking penalty on Washington's Mike Green.</p> <p>"If we don't address our penalties it's difficult because it ruins the whole flow of our game," Capitals defenseman Brian Pothier said.</p> <p>"Our penalty killers are tired. Our top guns aren't on the ice. Not to mention they've got a five on four."</p> <p>Ville Leino and Jason Williams also had goals for Detroit and Valtteri Filppula provided two assists.</p> <p>Matt Bradley and Brendan Morrison scored Washington's goals with Morrison's tally leveling the score at 2-2 early in the third period.</p> <p>Washington's Alex Ovechkin failed to score a goal for the second consecutive game but did record an assist on Morrison's goal.</p> <p>"They have real good players," Detroit coach Mike Babcock said of Ovechkin and Russian team mate Alexander Semin, who was held without a point. "We just tried to keep them under wraps."</p> <p>Chris Osgood made 22 saves for Detroit with Jose Theodore recording 34 for Washington.</p> <p>"He (Osgood) played great for us, especially in the penalty kill, Holmstrom said. "Ovechkin had a great chance in the slot (in the first period), and he got his pad out.</p> <p>"He played great against Chicago and I think he stepped up his game even more today, too. He looks really good."</p> <p>(Reporting by Gene Cherry in Salvo, North Carolina; Editing by Greg Stutchbury and Peter Rutherford)</p> </body> </html> </div><!-- end article-body --> </div><!-- end
