Mike Fisher scored 1:14 into overtime, giving the host Ottawa Senators a 4-3 comeback victory over the Washington Capitals. Fisher batted Chris Phillips' centering pass out of the air and past Semyon Varlamov for his 10th goal of the season. Brian Elliott made 25 saves in his fifth start for the Senators, who rallied from a 3-1 deficit in the third period to win their fourth in a row and wrap up a 4-0-1 homestand. Alexandre Picard scored Ottawa's second goal in a span of 4:20 on a power play 7:40 into the third to tie it at 3. Peter Regin gave the Senators a 1-0 lead 7:27 in before Ottawa allowed three straight goals.
