Rangers thump Ovechkin, Caps

NEW YORK — Artem Anisimov scored the first of three Rangers goals during a 3½-minute span early in the second period, and New York routed a frustrated Alex Ovechkin and the slumping Capitals 7-0 on Sunday.

Henrik Lundqvist made 31 saves in his fifth shutout of the season and Ryan Callahan scored twice in the third period as the Rangers handed Washington its sixth consecutive defeat.

Mired in a scoring slump, Ovechkin got in a rare fight when he went toe-to-toe with New York's Brandon Dubinsky in the second period, then left in the third after being hit by a shot.

After Ovechkin threw a hip check on Dan Girardi in the offensive zone, he skated up ice and went at Dubinsky, who landed multiple overhand rights before wrestling Ovechkin to the ice.

Game highlights: Corey Perry scored on a penalty shot while recording his first career hat trick and the host Ducks routed the Wild 6-2. … Henrik Sedin had a goal and an assist and the Canucks beat the Oilers 2-1, giving them three straight road wins for the first time in more than a year.
