"We'll take the plus-2 rating on the special teams," Oshie said. "Probably the deciding factor out there.

"(The Blackhawks) were battling back, put a lot of pucks on net tonight. They were forechecking hard. They didn't go away. Not our best game, but found a way to win."

Drake Caggiula, Dominik Kubalik and Patrick Kane connected for the Blackhawks, who rallied to tie it at 3 midway through the third. Alexander Nylander had two assists and Corey Crawford blocked 25 shots as Chicago's two-game winning streak ended.

Blackhawks coach Jeremy Colliton was upbeat after "one of our better performances of the season," but conceded a few mistakes ultimately cost his club.

"There are some things we can clean up and to improve on, no question, but the base of that game was pretty good," Colliton said. "We can build on that. I think our forecheck was as good as it's been, a great show of character to battle back."

Wilson snaps tie with 3 rd period goal , Caps edge Blackhawks . Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews wanted to add a little more nuance to the discussion. "I think there's less time than ever to wind up and take a full-on slapshot," Toews said.

Washington's Chandler Stephenson was slapped with a double-minor for high-sticking and cutting Dach near the mouth at 9:25 of the second. Dowd scored a short-handed goal 28 seconds into the first penalty to give the Capitals a 2-1 lead and short circuit Chicago's momentum.

After Kane lost the puck, Carl Hagelin carried it down the left wing on a 2-on-1 break with Dowd. He dished it to Dowd who fired a high one-timer past Crawford.

Chicago managed only two shots during the four-minute power play.

"It was probably our best PK," Holtby said. "We forced them up ice and made it really tough to get entry on that kill."

Ovechkin made it 3-1 at 3:52 of the third when he beat Crawford from the left circle with a one-timer after taking Carlson's cross-ice pass.

Kubalik cut it to 3-2 just 2:13 later. After Holtby stopped Brandon Saad's point-blank backhander, Kubalik buried the rebound from the edge of the crease.

Kane tied it 3 at 9:58, fooling Holtby from the right circle. After carrying the puck down the wing, Kane hesitated for a second, then fired a shot between Holtby's pads.

NOTES: Dach was the youngest player (18 years, 272 days) to make his debut with the Blackhawks since Kane (18 years, 319 days) in 2007. Dach suffered a concussion in the Traverse City (Michigan) prospects tournament in September and eventually was sent to Rockford of the AHL for a three-game conditioning stint before being recalled on Friday. ... Washington F Richard Panik (left shoulder) missed his second game after being injured in a collision with teammate and D Jonas Siegenthaler. Panik is on long-term injured reserve.
