Eric Fehr put in a rebound at 3:16 of overtime to give the Washington Capitals a 2-1 win over the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday night.

Fehr got his stick on a deflected shot from teammates Brooks Orpik and slid the puck past Arizona goalie Mike Smith as the Capitals (8-7-3) ended a two-game skid.

The Coyotes (8-9-2) lost a third straight game at home and in gut-wrenching fashion. Arizona lost the previous two games on late goals as well.
