NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Ryan Carter scored the tiebreaking goal with 4:54 remaining to lift the New Jersey Devils to a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals on Friday night.

Tuomo Ruutu also scored for New Jersey, and Cory Schneider made 24 saves.

Alex Ovechkin scored for Washington, which lost its fifth straight. Jaroslav Halak stopped 29 shots.

On the game-winner, Carter was sprung by a leading pass from Marek Zidlicky, and he snapped a shot that eluded Halak.
