Tampa, FL - Eric Fehr had two goals, including a tiebreaking redirection with 51.5 seconds left in the third period, as the Washington Capitals beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 on Thursday night.

Fehr was positioned in close when he tipped Mike Green's shot past Anders Lindback, helping the Capitals improve to 2-3-3 over their last eight games.

Tampa Bay had pulled even at 3 on Ondrej Palat's nifty tip-in of Matt Carle's shot at 14:30 of the third. Martin St. Louis also assisted on the goal to move past Rick Tocchet into sole possession of 89th place on the NHL's career list with 953 points.

Washington also got goals from Mikhail Grabovski and Marcus Johansson.

Tyler Johnson and B.J. Crombeen had the other goals for the Lightning.
