WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Martin Erat scored the winner in the sixth round of the shootout and the Washington Capitals escaped with a 5-4 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.

Alex Ovechkin had two goals and an assist for the Capitals, and Mikhail Grabovski and Troy Brouwer also scored.

Bryan Little struck twice for Winnipeg, including the tying score in the third period, and Grant Clitsome and Blake Wheeler also scored. The Jets wrapped up a six-game homestand, their longest of the season. Andrew Ladd had three assists.

The Jets outshot the Capitals 47-32 and created most of the best scoring opportunities, including a short-handed two-on-one thanks to Dustin Byfuglien.
