Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - The game wasnt decided in the 20th round of a shootout, but it was still full of theatrics. Alex Ovechkin tallied a goal and an assist as the Washington Capitals avenged their marathon shootout loss to the Florida Panthers last month with a 4-3 victory on Sunday. Brooks Laich, Karl Alzner and Andre Burakovsky also scored for the Capitals, who continued their hot play after a dramatic 3-2 win over Chicago in the Winter Classic on New Years Day. Braden Holtby stopped 29-of-32 shots in his 15th consecutive start. Nick Bjugstad, who provided the winner in the NHL-record shootout on Dec. 16, made it a one-goal game with 1:59 to play, but Florida was unable to tie it. Dylan Olsen and Vincent Trocheck also scored for the Panthers, who have dropped three of their last four games. We werent good enough, but we battled back and found a way to come closer at the end, Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said. We cant wait until the end of the game to get involved physically. Roberto Luongo gave up three goals on 21 shots over the first 40 minutes, but was replaced by Al Montoya, who turned aside 4-of-5 shots fired his way during the final stanza. Luongo took a hit from Ovechkin in the first period and gutted out the second before the injury caused him to exit the game for precautionary reasons. Trailing 2-1, Laichs rising slap shot from the far edge of the left circle tied the game at 12:13 of the second and the Capitals reclaimed the lead after Alzners blast from the high slot went past a screened Luongo with 54 seconds remaining in the stanza. Ovechkin sent the puck across the top of the crease to Burakovsky, who tapped it in for a 4-2 lead 5:42 into the final period. The Panthers received 47 seconds of 5-on-3 power-play time with under nine minutes remaining, but a strong Capitals penalty kill kept Florida at bay. After Montoya went to the bench in favor of an extra attacker with over two minutes to play, Bjugstad wristed a shot from a severe angle down low off the pipe and past Holtby for a one-goal game moments later. Florida threatened with a vacant net once again, but was unable to pull even. After a scoreless 20 minutes, Ovechkin gave Washington the lead with a power- play goal 1:16 into the middle stanza. Marcus Johansson found Nicklas Backstrom below the goal line and Ovechkin moved in from the left circle behind the play to wrist Backstroms feed past an unsuspecting Luongo. The Panthers responded with two goals in a span of 1:25. Three Washington players collided in the offensive zone and the Panthers embarked on a 3-on-0 down the ice. Holtby stopped Trocheck in tight, but Willie Mitchell sent the rebound on net and Trocheck was there to slip it in for a tied game at 3:57 of the second. Florida then took advantage of Washingtons poor defensive zone coverage as Olsens wrister from the left circle deflected in off the glove of Capitals defenseman Brooks Orpik at 5:22.

Stephane Robidas scored 16 seconds into overtime, and the Ducks staged the biggest comeback in team history by rallying from four goals down to beat the Jets 5-4 on Monday night. "Youre down 4-0 and you come back 4-4, now the pressure is on the other team because they gave up the lead," Robidas said. "We just tried to play our game, and I got lucky and it went in." Andrew Cogliano and Luca Sbisa assisted on Robidas fifth goal of the season. Anaheim outshot the Jets 25-6 in the third period and outscored them 3-0 to force overtime. Corey Perry tied it 4-4 with 22.7 seconds remaining in regulation, scoring his 39th goal after Anaheim pulled rookie goalie Frederik Andersen for an extra skater. "If Im going to the net and crashing around the blue paint, thats where Im effective," Perry said. "If Im not doing that, Im not playing my game." Nick Bonino cut the Ducks deficit to 4-1 in the second period, and Ryan Getzlaf and Hampus Lindholm scored in the third to set up Perrys heroics. Andersen (18-5) stopped 32 shots. The Ducks (49-18-8) established a franchise record for most wins in a season. "When you always believe you can win, youre never out of the game," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "I think that was what happened. We were so vastly outplayed in the first 35 minutes of the game. "When Nick Bonino scored and Freddie Andersen made the big save 20 seconds later, we thought if we could get another one, you never know." The Ducks never stopped attacking. "We didnt get a great start," Perry said. "We said if we keep pushing and playing that style we established in the second half of the second period, no team can play with us. Thats the way weve got to keep playing." The Jets struggled to put into words what happened in their collapse. "Youre just awfully disappointed because you liked so much of what you saw, and then to have it go away ... its just frustrating," Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice said. Defenceman Mark Stuart echoed that sentiment in just as few words as Maurice. "Its frustrating," he said. "Theres not a whole lot to say right noow.dddddddddddd. Its shock after a game like that." Anaheim remained atop of the Pacific Division, three points ahead of idle San Jose with a game in hand. The Ducks trail Western Conference-leading St. Louis by one point. Jacob Trouba, Matt Halischuk, Blake Wheeler and Eric Tangradi scored for Winnipeg, which is last in the Central Division. The Jets are 1-2-1 on their road trip that ends Tuesday at Phoenix. Winnipeg took a 1-0 lead on Troubas ninth goal of the season 8:48 in. Bryan Little earned an assist to extend his point streak to six games. Later in the period, Winnipeg took advantage of a Ducks mistake in their zone and made it 2-0. Halischuk scored his fifth of the season at 13:39. Winnipeg dominated play in the first period and outshot the Ducks 19-4 and had a 31-11 edge in shots after two periods. The Jets increased their lead to 3-0 just 33 seconds into the second on a power-play goal by Wheeler, Winnipegs goal leader with 27. The Jets have scored five power-play goals the past five games. Tangradi added Winnipegs fourth goal of the game, from Zach Redmond and Anthony Peluso, midway through the second period. "It wasnt pretty. They were all over us," Robidas said. "You have to give them credit because they came out hard. We didnt really show up in the first period. Its a lesson learned. We need to move on now." Boninos 20th of the season brought the Ducks within 4-1 with 2:16 left in the second. Getzlaf added a power-play goal, his 31st tally of the season, at 3:06 of the third, and Lindholm made it 4-3 just 1:13 later. Patrick Maroon had two assists for the Ducks. Teemu Selanne, who began his NHL career and scored 147 goals with the original Winnipeg Jets, played his final game against the new Jets franchise that relocated to Winnipeg from Atlanta in 2011.
