BOSTON (AP) Alex Chiasson had already scored once when he blocked a shot on the penalty kill, gave the puck a little kick and went off toward center ice.

Crossing the red line with three Bruins in pursuit, the Capitals forward moved in on Anton Khudobin, went to his backhand and beat the Boston goalie on the stick side. His two third-period goals made it 4-1 and sent Washington on its way to a 5-3 victory on Thursday night.

"The short-handed goal was massive," Washington coach Barry Trotz said. "If they score one there, the last few minutes would have been hectic."
