Connolly made it 1-0 when he tipped a Carlson shot past Detroit goalie Jonathan Bernier 3:39 into the game for a power-play goal.
Boyd, who scored his first NHL goal in Washingtons last game, stretched his streak to two games by taking a slick pass from Nic Dowd and scoring from the right side just past the midway mark of the first period.
Ovechkin then made it 3-0 in the first when he fired a shot that appeared to be going wide but hit a Detroit player, quickly changed direction and went in with 7:01 left.
Ovechkin and Oshie teamed up for two goals just 61 seconds apart midway through the second period. The first one went to Ovechkin at 9:05 before Oshie celebrated his return with a power-play goal 10:06 into the period, giving the Capitals a 5-0 lead.
That ended Berniers night, and Jimmy Howard came on to replace him. Bernier stopped 10 of 15 shots; Howard 9 of 10.
