Washington earned a 4-3 victory last night to extend its season-long winning streak to three games. Eric Fehr scored two goals last night at Tampa Bay and now has three goals and two assists in his last three games. It was Fehr's first two-goal game since March 9, 2011, and the fourth two-goal game of his career. Mathieu Perreault recorded the first three-assist game of his NHL career and tied his career high for points in a single game (three).
