WASHINGTON -- New Yorks Cam Talbot and Washingtons Philipp Grubauer, two backup goalies making it hard for their coaches to keep them on the bench, combined for 68 saves on Friday night. Air Max 90 The Starry Sky Black . Talbot came up one short. Nicklas Backstrom had a goal and an assist, and Eric Fehr scored the tiebreaking goal with 5:09 left to lift the Capitals over the Rangers 3-2. Moments after New York defenceman Dan Girardis drive hit the post, Fehr took a pass from Backstrom during 4-on-4 play, skated in, and beat Talbot from the right circle for his sixth goal. "It was just a quick release that beat me," Talbot said. "Its (a save) Ive got to make, especially in a situation like that where its a tie game with five minutes to go and were pressing for the win." Mike Green added a goal, and Grubauer had 37 saves for Washington, which had dropped two straight before taking the finale of a three-game homestand. "Its huge," Grubauer said. "Every win is, because I havent played many games. Every win is a great feeling for me." Grubauer improved to 5-1-1 in eight games since being called up to Washington. "Right now, its only been eight games, and goalies -- like everybody -- have their waves," Capitals coach Adam Oates said. "Right now it looks like hes playing with confidence, and hes giving the players confidence." Benoit Pouliot and Carl Hagelin scored for New York, which had won two straight. It was the Rangers first game after a nine-game homestand. "Its disappointing, obviously. I thought we played a pretty strong game," Girardi said. "That last (goal) is tough. I hit the post then they come right back down and score." Talbot, making his third straight start in place of No. 1 goalie Henrik Lundqvist, stopped 31 shots in the opener of a five-game road trip. He came in with an 8-2 record and a 1.60 goals against average in 12 games, and won the final two games of the homestand. Backstrom continued his impressive December and has 17 points in his last eight games. He began the night fourth in the NHL in points and third in assists, "Hes handling the puck with confidence, and hes making great plays," Fehr said. "Its what we expect of him, but its pretty unbelievable to watch." Hagelin tied the game with a short-handed goal 17 seconds into the third period. He took a feed from Ryan McDonagh, skated in alone on Grubauer, and scored with a backhanded shot. The Rangers outshot Washington 14-7 in the opening period and had two power plays to one for the Capitals, but trailed 1-0. With Rick Nash off for tripping, Martin Erat sent a pass to Green at the point for a one-timed shot that got past Talbot on the glove side at 6:55 for his third goal. New York lost defenceman Anton Stralman to an undisclosed injury in the period and played the remainder of the game with five defencemen. "You go from six to five defencemen and youre top three have to log a tremendous amount of minutes," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said, "Might make it a little bit more challenging in terms of defending and attacking, but thats not an excuse. Those are things that happen." The Rangers tied it on a power play when Pouliot deflected Brad Richards shot from the point past Grubauer at 1:37 of the second period. It was Pouliots sixth goal of the season and third in four games. The Capitals appeared to retake the lead midway through the second, but a replay review showed that Fehrs shot bounced off the post, went behind Talbot, but didnt cross the goal line. After a flurry of saves by Grubauer late in the period, the Capitals went ahead 2-1 when Steve Olesky pushed a loose puck ahead to Backstrom. Talbot could only get a piece of the shot from the right circle that produced Backstroms 10th goal with 1:05 left in the period. "Hes playing great, hes obviously in a groove," Oates said. "We count on him so much for so many touches in a game." Lundqvist, a three-time All-Star, signed a seven-year, $59.5 million contract extension on Dec. 4 to become the highest paid NHL goalie. Since then, he is 2-4-2 with a 3.41 goals-against average in eight games. Lundqvist lost his most recent appearance 5-3 to the New York Islanders last Friday, giving up four goals on 19 shots.

"This is a great team. Maybe the best team Ive played on in my career. Im so fortunate to be here. We look up at that 2012 Championship pennant banner every day and we want one of those. Thats the goal. This is a great start but there is more work to do yet." After taking the opener 6-3, the Goldeyes got two runs in the first inning of the nightcap and thats all they needed.
