Wild rebounds from rare loss with 5-3 win over Capitals

The Wild quickly pressed the reset button after their franchise-record 14-game point streak was snapped earlier this weekend, repelling the Capitals 5-3 on Sunday afternoon at Xcel Energy Center while by recovering three regulars in their alignment.

Matt Boldy had a hat trick, twice converting two set-ups from teammate Marcus Johansson, and goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 33 shots to win his seventh consecutive game.

Boldy scored his first goal just 50 seconds into the first period, burying the rebound from a Johansson shot behind Charlie Lindgren of Lakeville. On his second shot, he went back and forth with Johansson at 4:36.

The Capitals cut their power play deficit in the second period, a carded one-timer from Alex Ovechkin.

But the Wild restored a two-goal buffer at 10:14 when Ryan Reaves scored his third in the last four games.

In the third, Brandon Duhaime scored on a rising backhand in his first game since missing seven with an upper-body injury before Ovechkin took the power play again at 12:33 . Ovechkin has scored 39 goals this season and 819 in his NHL career. Washington finished 2 for 4 on the power play; the Wild went 0-for-3.

Boldy scored his second career hat trick with 6:02 left in the third on a breakaway. Dylan Strome finished the scoring at 16:26 when he pounced on a loose puck in a tight game.

The Wild also returned Jonas Brodin to action after sitting out 12 with a lower-body problem, and Jake Middleton returned after being out for two games with illness.

Lindgren totaled 35 saves.
