Alex Ovechkin's first goal of the 2013 season also happened to represent the first game-winner for the Washington Capitals, who beat the Buffalo Sabres 3-2 on Sunday.

Ovechkin seemed due, as he now has just one tally on 18 shots this season. He nearly scored another time, but missed an open net late in the game. Still, Ovi owners must feel better as he looked more like his former dominant self - including spending more time alongside Nicklas Backstrom.
