Kyle Turris got the go-ahead goal early in the second period and the Sens hung on to take a second consecutive win for the first time since early November.

Mika Zibanejad also scored and Clarke MacArthur added an empty-netter.

Joel Ward scored and Philipp Grubauer made 35 saves for the Caps, who fell for the fourth time in five games.
