APNewsNow. Blackhawks 5, Capitals 2. With AP Photos. Rookie Andrew Shaw recorded his first two-goal game, and the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Washington Capitals 5-2 on Sunday night for their third straight win. Viktor Stalberg, Patrick Kane and Bryan Bickell also scored for Chicago, which is 7-1-1 in its last nine despite playing without captain and leading goals scorer Jonathan Toews. Mike Knuble and Alex Ovechkin scored for Washington, which lost its second straight following a four-game winning streak. Corey Crawford made 16 saves and in his second straight start. Projected to be Chicago's top goalie this season, Crawford's inconsistent play prompted Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville to start Ray Emery in five previous contests. Michal Neuvirth stopped 24 shots for the Capitals, who didn't dress No. 1 goalie Tomas Vokoun due to an undisclosed injury.
