WASHINGTON, April 11 (UPI) -- Troy Brouwer scored Washington's first and last goal Thursday and the Capitals extended their winning streak to six games by downing Carolina 3-1.

Washington began the night with a two-point lead over Winnipeg in the battle for the Southeast Division title. Carolina lost its seventh in a row in its continued slide out of the playoff race.

Jeff Skinner gave Carolina the lead 5:01 into the game, but Braden Holtby was perfect the rest of the way while stopping 43 shots.

Brouwer's first goal tied it 8:08 into the second and Mike Green scored less than 3 minutes later to put the Capitals in front. Brouwer tacked on an empty-net goal with 6 seconds to go in the third.

Justin Peters gave up two goals on 30 shots for the Hurricanes.
