NHL: Washington 3, Ottawa 2

Dec. 19, 2010 at 10:34 PM   |   Comments

OTTAWA, Dec. 19 (UPI) -- Mathieu Perreault scored twice in the second period for Washington Sunday and the Capitals broke an eight-game losing streak with a 3-2 decision over Ottawa.

It looked like the skidding Caps would be going down to their ninth consecutive loss early on, when they spotted the Senators a 2-0 lead on goals by Ryan Shannon and Chris Kelley.

But Washington roared back in the middle frame, notching three goals in less than 6 minutes. Perreault got his first goal 34 seconds into the period and Eric Fehr made it 2-2 only 46 seconds later.

Perreault got the go-ahead score at 6:55, firing a rebound of a Fehr shot into an open net on a power play.

Michal Neuvirth stopped 24-of-26 shots as the Caps won for the first time since Dec. 1.

Brian Elliott made 31 saves for Ottawa's setback.
