WASHINGTON, Nov. 12 (UPI) -- Alex Ovechkin's goal 1:34 into overtime Tuesday completed a late rally that carried the Washington Capitals over Columbus 4-3.

The Caps were trailing 3-2 with 1:45 left in regulation when Mikhail Grabovski scored the tying goal.

Then in overtime, Marcus Johansson got free of a check by Columbus defenseman James Wisniewski and launched a shot at Sergei Bobrovsky.

Joel Ward and John Carlson also scored and Braden Holtby made 24 saves.

Brandon Dubinsky, Jared Boll and Cam Atkinson each scored for Columbus, which fell for the sixth time in seven games.

Bobrovsky finished with 30 saves.
