But Kane made it 3-1 at 7:57 after Washington's John Carlson couldn't handle the puck deep in his zone. Kane fired into an empty net after to cap a quick passing play with Andrew Brunette and Marian Hossa.
Shaw made it 4-1 with his second goal just under four minutes later. He skated out from behind the net to Neuvirth's right, reached across the crease and slid in a shot.
Ovechkin beat Keith, Chicago's top defenseman, with a slick move 1-on-1, then drove to the net and beat Crawford at with 5:32 left in the second to cut it to 4-2.
Neuvirth and Crawford both made several tough close-in saves in the third Bickell fired in an empty-net goal with 1:47 left.
NOTES: All four officials wore No. 47 to salute linesman Dan Schachte, who worked his 2,009th and final game. Schachte, who has worked more games than any other American official in NHL history, appeared in his first game on Oct. 6, 1982, at the Chicago Stadium. ... Vokoun, who has played in 47 games, is day-to-day. Braden Holtby was recalled from Hershey of the AHL to take Vokoun's roster spot and backed up Neuvirth on Sunday. ... Toews missed his 13th game with a concussion. Toews had resumed skating without contact, but then stopped last Thursday.
