Reimer, Sharks beat Capitals 4-1 to snap 2-game skid

WASHINGTON (AP) James Reimer has seen plenty of Alex Ovechkin throughout his career and been on the unfortunate end of one of his many goals like so many netminders around the NHL.

On Wednesday night, Reimer was feeling lucky, and it showed.

Reimer stopped Ovechkin eight times among his 32 saves to help the San Jose Sharks beat the Washington Capitals 4-1 and snap a two-game losing streak. After allowing four goals on 13 shots on the way to a 7-1 drubbing at home to Tampa Bay over the weekend, it was a strong bounce-back effort for Reimer and his teammates.
