Wilson snaps tie with 3rd period goal, Caps edge Blackhawks

CHICAGO (AP) The Washington Capitals admitted they weren't at their best. Still good enough to pull out a win to start a five-game road trip.

Tom Wilson broke a tie with 8:13 left and the Capitals rebounded after blowing a two-goal lead to beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-3 on Sunday night for their third straight win.

Wilson beat Corey Crawford from the right edge of the crease with his third goal after he was left open and took a cross-ice pass from Carl Hagelin to put Washington ahead 4-3. Lars Eller added an empty-netter from his own zone with 49.3 seconds remaining.
