Vrana, Kuznetsov power Capitals past Senators

(TSX / STATS) -- WASHINGTON -- With questions arising about possibly reuniting Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom on the same line, Capitals coach Barry Trotz played it coy in recent days.

Wednesday morning, he told his team he was making the move. Wednesday night, the players took it from there.

Jakub Vrana scored two goals, Evgeny Kuznetsov had a goal and two assists and the Capitals defeated the Ottawa Senators 5-2.
