Hurricanes Beat Capitals 4-3 In OT

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Justin Faulk scored the game-winner at 3:38 of overtime, Cam Ward stopped 46 shots, and the Carolina Hurricanes beat the skidding Washington Capitals 4-3 Tuesday night.

Faulk took a centering pass from Brandon Sutter and fired the puck past goaltender Michal Neuvirth to saddle Washington with its third successive defeat, although the Capitals did get a point by forcing overtime late in regulation.

After suffering two straight shutout losses, both at home, Washington went ahead 2-0 before Carolina came back to take the lead on a breakaway goal by Sutter at 1:45 of the third period. The tally came after Capitals defenseman Dennis Wideman took a futile whack at the bouncing puck in an effort to keep it in the Washington zone.

Washington forced overtime when Brooks Laich scored off a centering pass from Marcus Johansson at 17:08 of the third.
