Shaw's OT goal lifts Blackhawks past Caps 4-3

Associated Press  |  Last updated September 28, 2013
Andrew Shaw knocked in a rebound at 1:47 of overtime to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 4-3 victory over the Washington Capitals on Saturday night in the teams' preseason finale. Defenseman Nick Leddy had two goals and an assist, and Jimmy Hayes also scored for the Blackhawks (4-0-2). Nikolai Khabibulin had 12 saves. Mikhail Grabovski, Marcus Johansson and Joel Ward scored for Washington (4-0-4), which will open the regular season at Chicago on Tuesday night. Braden Holtby finished with 32 saves. Blackhawks No. 1 goaltender Corey Crawford didn't dress as a precaution because of lower-body stiffness, according to coach Joel Quenneville. Crawford, who played every minute of Chicago's 2013 Stanley Cup playoff run, is expected to start Tuesday. The Blackhawks will raise a banner in a ceremony before that contest to celebrate their fifth NHL championship and second in four seasons. Chicago's top line of right wing Patrick Kane, center Jonathan Toews and left wing Bryan Bickell started and skated together throughout the game. Leddy opened the scoring 5:52 in on a high screeened shot after pinching into the slot. Grabovski tied it at 4:48 of the second by completing a breakaway, but Leddy put Chicago ahead 2-1 on a low screened shot from the left point 3:30 later. Johansson tied it at 2-all at 3:32 of the third on a low shot from the left circle that fooled Khabibulin. Hayes put Chicago ahead 3-2 at 6:52 of the third, but Ward scored from 15 feet out with 5:01 left in regulation to set up overtime.
