Capitals 4, Devils 3

WASHINGTON — T.J. Oshie scored twice to end a lengthy drought, Alex Ovechkin had a late power-play goal and the Washington Capitals erased a two-goal deficit to beat the New Jersey Devils.

Ovechkin scored with 4:04 left, and that turned out to be a necessary insurance goal when Nikita Gusev beat Craig Anderson with 11.9 seconds left. But it was too late for another comeback, and Washington avoided back-to-back losses.

Drake Batherson and Josh Norris also scored, and Matt Murray made 30 saves. The Senators are last in the NHL at 5-14-1.

Corey Perry and Nick Suzuki scored for Montreal, with Perry tying it at 2 with 5:35 left in the third period.

Jets 4, Canucks 3, OT

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Pierre-Luc Dubois scored 27 seconds into overtime to lift Winnipeg past Vancouver for a two-game sweep.

Vancouver’s Elias Pettersson tied it with 38 seconds left in regulation on a power play, his second goal of the game.
