TAMPA, Florida (Ticker) -- Goaltender Olaf Kolzig has always had his way with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The two-time All-Star goaltender hopes for more of the same when the Washington Capitals visit the Lightning on Saturday.

Kolzig boasts a 20-9-1 mark against Tampa Bay, posting a 2.36 goals-against average and a .915 save percentage in 32 games.

The 2000 Vezina Trophy winner has been particularly effective this season against the defending champs, registering a 2-1-1 mark and a .938 save percentage in four appearances.

The Capitals rallied for a 2-1 victory over the Lightning on Sunday on the heels of another strong performance from Kolzig, who made 34 saves and helped Washington kill off all seven of its penalties.

Jeff Halpern tallied late in the second period to even the score and Dainius Zubrus scored the game-winner late in the third for the Capitals, who have won three of five from the Lightning this season.

After missing Wednesday's game with a groin injury, rookie sensation Alexander Ovechkin returned to the lineup Friday and had an immediate impact for the Capitals.

Ovechkin picked up an assist to move within one point of the franchise rookie scoring record as Washington posted a 4-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

With 34 goals and 32 assists, Ovechkin trails Bob Carpenter and Chris Valentine, who scored 67 points each for the Capitals in 1981-1982.

Tampa Bay hopes to carry some momentum from its 3-2 shootout victory over Toronto on Tuesday.

Brad Richards scored his 100th career goal late in the first period and scored the decisive tally in the shootout for the Lightning, who have won six of their last eight.
