Glendale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Eric Fehr scored the winning goal at 3:16 of overtime to give the Washington Capitals a 2-1 victory over the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday.
In the extra session, Brooks Orpik cranked a shot from the top of the left circle that Fehr redirected on net. Mike Smith was there for the first stop, but Fehr grabbed his own rebound and put it in for the win.
Jay Beagle scored the other goal while Braden Holtby stopped 23 shots for the Capitals, who snapped a two-game slide.
"I think anytime you can grind out a win, it's always a good thing," said Capitals head coach Barry Trotz. "It was a big win on the road. We needed that."
Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored the only goal of the game for the Coyotes, who had a two-game winning streak snapped. Smith stopped 22 shots in the loss.
"I thought we competed hard tonight," Arizona head coach Dave Tippett said. "The way you generate offense is to play in the offensive zone. We didn't get there enough."
Washington took a 1-0 lead at 11:11 of the first when Jason Chimera skated in down the left wing and passed it to the front where Beagle wristed it home for his second of the year.
Arizona tied the game two minutes into the second period when Ekman-Larsson had a wide open net from the left circle for his third of the season.
