The Capitals end their two game losing slide with a 2 to 1 overtime victory over the Coyotes that ended with Eric Fehr's game winner. Jay Beagle and Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored in the first and second periods, respectively, and set the stage for Fehr through the first sixty minutes. Braden Holtby's 23 saves were exactly what Washington needed before Fehr's timely tally. These two points are exactly what the Doctor ordered before the team packs up and heads to Denver to face the Avalanche.

Look for our full recap later, but first, Tuesday night's Plus/Minus:

Plus/Minus:

  • Plus: Fehr was spot on in overtime, taking a rebound off of Mike Smith's left leg pad and tucking it just inside the right goal post. Brooks Orpik's point shot started the play and his defensive partner John Carlson also registered an assist on the play that beat Arizona.
  • Minus: Washington looked great through twenty minutes but faltered early, and often, in the second period. They went shotless for thirteen minutes and only ended up mustering two for the entire period. The Coyotes tied the game in that frame and could've put it out of reach if not for Holtby's strong play.

And now, this...
