Backstrom scores in OT, Caps take 3-2 series lead on Jackets

WASHINGTON (AP) Overtime came at the perfect time for the Washington Capitals.

Outshot, outskated and outplayed by the Columbus Blue Jackets in a lopsided third period of Game 5, the Capitals went into their locker room at intermission Saturday with no choice but to talk about what went wrong in blowing yet another lead.

"We knew we had to be better," Nicklas Backstrom said.
