Raffl's late goal pushes Capitals past Bruins, 2-1

WASHINGTON (AP) The Washington Capitals got Alex Ovechkin back on the ice feeling "100%" heading into the playoffs. Winning was just a bonus.

Michael Raffl scored from a tight angle with 1.8 seconds remaining, Ovechkin saw his first extended action since April 22 and the Capitals beat the short-handed Boston Bruins 2-1 on Tuesday night in the teams' regular season finale.

"Right now, I'm 100%," the Capitals' all-time leading scorer said. "I didn't feel any soreness. I feel comfortable. That's the most important thing. This time of year, you have to be smart and you have to think about the future, not only regular season."
