TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Eric Fehr scored two goals, Mathieu Perreault had three assists, and the Washington Capitals won their third straight game by beating the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 on Thursday.

Troy Brouwer and Jay Beagle had the other Washington goals.

Martin St. Louis, Teddy Purcell and Nate Thompson scored for the Lightning, who have lost six in a row (0-5-1). Tampa Bay backup goalie Mathieu Garon got the start in place of Anders Lindback, who is ill.

Washington took a 2-1 lead on Fehr’s in-close goal at 5:09 of the second. It was his 100th career point.

Fehr made it 3-1 on a slap shot from the top of the right circle 2:22 into the third. All three of his goals this season have come over the past two games.
