With AP Photos.Sergei Bobrovsky made 54 saves, Matt Calvert scored the victor 12:22 into overtime and the Columbus Blue Jackets overcame two goals from Alex Ovechkin to beat the Washington Capitals 5-4 to take a 2-0 lead in their first-round playoff series. The game-winner was reviewed for offside, but the call was upheld. Linesman Steve Barton had to be helped off the ice late in the first period after clipping skates with Anderson and going down clutching his left knee.

The series now shifts to Colubmus with the Blue Jackets holding a 2-0 series lead.

Sergei Bobrovsky made 54 saves, Matt Calvert scored the victor 12:22 into overtime and the Columbus Blue Jackets overcame two goals from Alex Ovechkin beat the Washington Capitals 5-4 in Game 2 on Sunday night to take a 2-0 lead in their first-round playoff series. Calvert was just onside when Josh Anderson brought the puck into the zone.

After the Capitals retook a two-goal advantage, the Blue Jackets scored three straight goals and took a 4-3 lead over the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Down by two goals after the Capitals got tallies from center Jay Beagle and left winger Alex Ovechkin in the first 13-plus minutes of play, the Blue Jackets went to work on the offensive end of the ice and registered their first score of the night when right winger Cam Atkinson tipped a shot into the back of the net. The goal was scored while a Blue Jackets player appeared to be off-sides, which would have negated the goal and continued the game. In Stanley Cup playoff history, 86.4 percent of teams that take a 2-0 lead in a best-of-seven series have gone on to win it.

The Capitals went up 3-1 early in the game thanks to Alex Ovechkin's two goals in the first two periods.

Through two games, Bobrovsky has now stopped 81 of 88 shots against.

Over is 5-0 in Capitals last 5 overall and Capitals are 5-0 in their last 5 road games and Capitals are 4-0 in their last 4 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than.600. But a delay of game penalty on Werenski set the stage for T.J. Oshies tying goal on the power play with 3:35 left.

Bobrovsky also sprawled out in the third to keep this puck from trickling over the line, one of the many highlights he produced on Sunday. Two of the so-called fiercest rivals in the National Hockey League have provided three lopsided games: Pittsburgh's 7-0 win in Game 1 and Philadelphia's 5-1 victory in Game 2 could about qualify as nail-bitters in this series. They will have two games at home, giving them the chance to get the series sweep on their home ice.
