WASHINGTON (AP) — Artturi Lehkonen had two goals and two assists to help the Colorado Avalanche snap a four-game losing streak by beating the Washington Capitals 6-3.

Ross Colton also had a goal and an assist as his line with Lehkonen and Miles Wood led the way for Colorado. Devon Toews also scored for the Avalanche in their first victory on a lengthy road trip coming out of the NHL All-Star break.

Alex Ovechkin extended his goal streak to six games by scoring on the power play. Ovechkin now has 14 goals this season and, at 835 in his career, is 59 away from breaking Wayne Gretzky's record.
