    WASHINGTON - Shortly after earning a selection for his second NHL All-Star game, Detroit Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard left the ice on a stretcher.Howard left with a groin injury after Troy Brouwers goal just 1:53 into the game, Washingtons Braden Holtby stopped 26 shots and the Capitals beat the Red Wings 3-1 Saturday night.Hell go back (to Detroit) and get tested and well see what happens, Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said of Howard. Obviously he was in great pain.Jonathan Ericsson scored his first goal of the season for Detroit, and Petr Mrazek made 12 saves in relief of Howard.Both goalies were good, Detroits Henrik Zetterberg said after the Red Wings fell to 2-2 on their six-game road trip. Petr came in and played well and made some huge saves in the third period to keep us in it.John Carlson and Joel Ward added second period goals for Washington, which improved to 12-1-4 in its last 17 games.Hotlby, who picked up his 20th win of the season, was making his 18th straight start and has appeared in 24 consecutive games.Washington finished with just 17 shots on goal, and Alex Ovechkins consecutive games with a goal streak ended at five, but the Capitals still built a 3-0 lead midway through the second period.They like to come with the puck through the middle with speed, and I thought we did a good job with just keeping the entire game on the walls, Capitals defenceman Matt Niskanen said. Really clogging things up in the right areas.Howard was carried off after Brouwers power-play goal. After Washington dumped the puck in, Howard stopped it behind the net and started back around front, but Brouwer got to the puck first. As Brouwer stuffed the puck in on Howards right for his 12th of the season, Howard stretched across the crease trying to make the save.He remained down on his stomach as the trainer came out. After about five minutes, Howard rose to his knees and was taken off.Carlson capped off a pretty passing play at 1:35 of the second. Nicklas Backstrom crossed the blue line and sent the puck to Andre Burakovsky in the right circle. Burakovsky fed it to Carlson who had just crossed the blue line and he scored on a slap shot to make it 2-0.I thought we gave them the first goal and even the second goal goes right through the middle of us, Babcock said.Washington, winners of five straight at home, extended the lead at 11:39 of the period when Ward controlled a bouncing puck in the slot with and man on him and fired past Mrazek for his 11th goal.Ericssons blast through traffic got Detroit on the board with 12 seconds left in the second period.I think earlier in the season when that would have happened to us, you would feel a tension in the (locker) room, Washington coach Barry Trotz said. I didnt feel any tension in the room.Detroit got 15 shots on Holtby over the final 20 minutes, but couldnt get closer.Thought we did lots of good things, Babcock said. We had the puck a ton and we shot the puck a ton. They blocked lots of shots.NOTES: Howard was the only Detroit player chosen for the All-Star game on Jan. 25 in Columbus, Ohio. ... Ovechkin, named to his sixth All-Star contest, was Washingtons lone selection. ... The Capitals improved to 21-1-3 when scoring first. ...

OTTAWA -- The Ottawa Senators were on the verge of a massive comeback, only to fall short in overtime. After overcoming a three-goal deficit the Senators forced the game to overtime only to watch it slip away as Seth Jones scored the winner 3:49 into the extra period as the Nashville Predators defeated the Senators 4-3 Monday night. Ryan Ellis broke in alone on goaltender Robin Lehner and Jones was there to bang home the loose puck. "It was a tough one to slip away and we almost gave it away," said Jones. "We need all the points we can get right now so it was nice to pull away with two." The win allowed the Predators (27-28-10) to snap a four-game losing streak. The Senators say they take solace in earning the single point, but at the same time know they need to be better if they hope to stay in the playoff race. "The way the game was looking going into the third period it looked pretty bleak for us to get that one point so well take the positive," said Ottawas Marc Methot. "It would have been nice to get two, but were happy with the resiliency we showed at the end." Nick Spaling, Craig Smith and Eric Nystrom also scored for Nashville. Pekka Rinne faced 37 shots. This was Rinnes first victory in four starts since returning from injury. Jared Cowen, Methot and Jason Spezza scored for the Senators (28-25-12). Craig Anderson allowed three goals on 29 shots before leaving the game early in the third. Lehner faced 13 shots in relief. Senators coach Paul MacLean said he didnt have an immediate update on Anderson, but didnt believe it was anything serious. Holding a 3-0 lead the Predators nearly let the game slip away in the third as the Senators scored twice in a span of 2:39. "I thought we played real well, especially the first two periods," said Nashvilles Mike Fisher. "We thought we were the better team, but then gave them a little life in the third and the crowd came alive for them and before you knew it, it was 3-3." Spezza tied the game with 67 seconds remaining in regulation. The newly acquired Ales Hemsky, who had three assists, found Spezza at the side of the net and the Senators captain banged it in. "We knew we had to make a push in the third and it showed a lot of character for us to get a pointt," said Spezza.dddddddddddd. "We kept coming and coming, but it sure would have been nice to pull that one out in overtime." The comeback started midway through the third, as Cowen was able to find the puck through traffic in front and push it past Rinne. Spezza picked up his second assist of the night as he found a surging Methot to make it a 3-2 game at the halfway mark. The Predators three unanswered second period goals appeared to make this game look all but decided. "We normally do a better job of locking these games down," said Predators head coach Barry Trotz. Anderson could hardly be blamed for any of the goals as he was the victim of two redirections and a giveaway. Andersons night came to an end at 4:10 of the third after he was hit in the head by teammate Milan Michalek. On the first goal Spaling tipped a Michael Del Zotto point shot at the eight-minute mark of the second. Less than two minutes later Colin Wilson won the faceoff in the Senators end and got the puck to Jones on the point. The blue liner then passed it to Mattias Ekholm, who took a shot that Smith re-directed in front. The Predators made it 3-0 on Nystroms unassisted goal. Methot went to clear the puck and it landed directly on Nystroms stick for the easy finish on Anderson. A scoreless first period was highlighted by the damage inflicted by Shea Webers powerful shot. First, Anderson dropped to the ice after taking a Weber shot in the shoulder and minutes later Cody Ceci took a shot to the head that left him with a lacerated right ear. He did not return to the game. "You never want to see anyone go down like that," said Weber. "Hopefully hes doing all right because thats nothing you ever want to see." Following the game Ceci tweeted, "Thanks for all your concerns just a cut and a little shaken up should be back at it soon enough." Notes: The Senators were without LW Clarke MacArthur as he has a hand injury, but is expected to return for Saturdays game against Montreal. D Patrick Wiercioch, was a healthy scratch for the Senatorsa LW Gabriel Bourque and D Victor Bartley were healthy scratches for the Predatorsa.The CIS Mens Basketball Champion Carleton Ravens were honoured before the game and took part in the ceremonial puck drop.
