WASHINGTON (AP) In his first season as a Stanley Cup champion, Alex Ovechkin is enjoying hockey as much as ever.

It showed again Tuesday night, when he scored his 21st hat trick and first this season to lift the Washington Capitals over the Detroit Red Wings 6-2.

The 33-year-old Ovechkin entered the night in a familiar spot as the NHL's goal leader. He has 25 following his hat trick, halfway to a potential eighth 50-goal season. His team has won three straight, and 10 out of 12.
