Caps stop Jackets’ streak in OT

Columbus, OH ( – Eric Fehr’s goal 42 seconds into overtime
lifted the Washington Capitals to a 5-4 come-from-behind victory over
Columbus, halting the Blue Jackets’ seven-game win streak.

Michael Chaput’s first career NHL goal had given Columbus a 4-3 lead with 4:25
remaining in regulation, but Troy Brouwer answered for the Capitals just 1:25
later to send the game into extra time.

Fehr, Jason Chimera and Karl Alzner each recorded a goal and an assist for
Washington, which earned a point for a seventh straight outing. The Caps are
5-0-2 over that stretch, which included an overtime loss to the Blue Jackets
in Washington a week ago.

Nick Foligno scored twice and assisted on another for Columbus, which received
31 saves from Sergei Bobrovsky in defeat.
