The Capitals shook up their roster a bit Monday, acquiring left wing Jason Chimera from the Blue Jackets in a trade that sends Chris Clark and defenseman Milan Jurcina to Columbus. The deal cuts about $2 million in salary this season from Washington's payroll, which could clear room for another trade. Chimera has eight goals and nine assists this season, along with 47 penalty minutes, more than anyone on Washington's roster. The deal moves him from the last-place Blue Jackets - a team on a franchise-record-tying nine-game losing streak - to a first-place Capitals club.

WASHINGTON - It was much too evenly played, this game between the Washington Capitals and the Central Division also-ran Columbus Blue Jackets. Shots, scoring chances and puck control seemed evenly split much of the night, a situation the final 2-2 score reflected. And, when it mattered, it seemed the Blue Jackets always had the luck and the Capitals didn't. And yet, Caps defenseman Sergei Gonchar, who scored both goals last night, put away the game-tying power-play goal with 9:32 to play, only moments after the team was booed for an errant pass that wiped out precious seconds on a 5-on-3 power play.

WASHINGTON - Sergei Gonchar's big slap shot had sting last night. The solid veteran, who leads all NHL defensemen in scoring, scored twice and assisted on a goal by Adam Oates in the Washington Capitals' 6-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets at MCI Center. The victory ends a string of three straight losses for Washington, which improves to 17-20-7. The win also gives the Caps confidence heading into tomorrow's home game against the Eastern Conference-leading Toronto Maple Leafs (25-13-3)
