Washington Earns a Point but Falls in Overtime in New Jersey, 3-2
Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

A day after Coach Adam Oates described his team as “fragile,” the Washington Capitals finally found the ability to fight back. Instead of waiting for things to go their way, they forced circumstances to bend in their favor, but ultimately the result was the same. Mike Ribeiro and Mike Green scored in the final 7 minutes and 15 seconds of regulation to tie the game and force overtime against the New Jersey Devils on Friday night, but the Capitals couldn’t complete the rally. Ilya Kovalchuk scored with 20.5 seconds remaining in the extra session to hand Washington a 3-2 loss, dropping the visitors to 0-3-1.
