Power-play goal gives Caps OT win

WASHINGTON — Brooks Laich's power-play goal 44 seconds into overtime gave the Capitals a 3-2 win over the Bruins on Monday night.

Laich's goal came 20 seconds after Boston's Dennis Wideman was called for high-sticking, and the Capitals had the four-on-three advantage.

Graham James pleaded guilty to sexual assault and served 31/2 years. The Parole Board said it cannot refuse a pardon based on the nature of a crime.
