WASHINGTON, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- Brooks Laich scored with 12 seconds left in overtime Saturday, handing the Washington Capitals a 3-2 victory over Ottawa.

Laich and Jason Chimera worked a 2-on-1 toward the Ottawa net in the final seconds of the extra frame. Chimera skated in on the left side and fed a crossing pass to Laich, who beat Craig Anderson for the game-winner.

Troy Brouwer and Nicklas Backstrom scored in regulation for the Capitals, which broke a four-game losing streak and logged their first win under new Coach Dale Hunter.

Michal Neuvirth turned aside 32-of-34 shots to earn the win.

Erik Karlsson scored and Milan Michalek's 16th goal of the year with 3:15 left in regulation forced an overtime for the Senators.

Anderson finished with 32 saves.
