Capitals top Coyotes 3-2 with three-goal third

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) -

Troy Brouwer scored a power-play goal off a rebound to cap a rally from a two-goal deficit in the third period as the Washington Capitals beat the Phoenix Coyotes 3-2 on Saturday night.

After failing to score in the first 49 minutes against Mike Smith (30 saves), Washington tallied three times in a span of 5 minutes, 2 seconds. Carl Alzner started the surge with a goal at the 9:45 mark. Just 32 seconds later, Brooks Laich tied it on a feed from Jason Chimera.

It was a successful Washington debut for goalie Jaroslav Halak, who made 31 saves. Halak, acquired from the Buffalo Sabers in a deadline deal on Wednesday, helped Washington snap its three-game losing streak.

Brandon McMillan and Radim Vrbata scored for Phoenix, with Keith Yandle assisting on both.
