Ovechkin beats Tarasov for 750th goal, Capitals top Columbus

WASHINGTON (AP) Alex Ovechkin found a new goaltender to score on for another milestone goal, though this time the name rang a bell.

Ovechkin beat Daniil Tarasov for his 20th goal of the season and 750th of his NHL career to help the Washington Capitals beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-1 Saturday night and snap a two-game skid.

"I think I play against his father back in Russia," Ovechkin said.
