Washington • Secretary of State John Kerry, the most powerful politician in the house, performed a ceremonial puck drop to send the Olympians on their way.

Alex Ovechkin, the biggest hockey star in the arena, scored his league-leading 40th goal to give his team the lead in the third period.

Set aside those two larger-than-life names for a moment, however, and look at the trio who occupy the score sheet for the crucial tying goal early in the third period of the Washington Capitals’ 4-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night: Patrick Wey (second NHL game). Julien Brouillette (first NHL game). Tom Wilson (second NHL goal).

"It was a simple play, but it was nice that we ended up scoring," Wey said.

Simple but effective. Wey passed cross-ice to Brouillette, who then deliberately shot wide of the net to set up a carom off the boards that eventually made its way to Wilson.
