Semin Lifts Capitals Past Hurricanes

Capitals 3, Hurricanes 2

WASHINGTON -- Alexander Semin scored twice in the final three minutes, getting the game-winning goal with 10.9 seconds left, to rally the Washington Capitals past the Carolina Hurricanes 3-2 on Thursday night.

The Capitals trailed 2-1 before Semin scored from close range with 2:43 to go. Then, with time running out, he ended a rush toward the net by beating Cam Ward with a wrist shot from inside the right circle.

Semin has 10 goals in 12 games, which has enabled the Capitals to withstand an unusual scoring drought by Alex Ovechkin.
