WASHINGTON (AP) Alex Ovechkin thought he had a chance to score every time he shot the puck and came away disappointed he finished with just one goal.

Ovechkin scored his NHL-leading 29th goal of the season, extended his point streak to a career-best 14 games and had the shootout winner to help the Washington Capitals beat the Buffalo Sabres 4-3 on Saturday night. The Russian superstar and reigning playoff MVP continued one of the best runs of his career and fell two goals shy of becoming the first player in league history to record a hat trick in three consecutive games.

"It would be nice to get another hatty or whatever," Ovechkin said. "But nothing you can do about it."
