Washington, DC (Sports Network) - The Washington Capitals are the only unbeaten team left in the NHL.

The Detroit Red Wings, by a six-goal margin, lost their chance to say the same.

Mike Green had two power play goals and two assists Saturday and the Capitals coasted to a 7-1 win over Detroit in a game between the only undefeated teams left in the league.

Mathieu Perreault also scored twice for the Capitals, who are a franchise-best 7-0 to open the season. Alex Ovechkin had two assists and Tomas Vokoun made 32 saves to improve to 6-0 in his first season with Washington.

The Red Wings, who were trying to match the best start in team history, got their lone goal from Niklas Kronwall on a power play in the second period. Ty Conklin allowed all seven Capitals goals on 25 shots.
