Washington trailed 5-3 before Eric Fehr scored on a redirect at 14:53 of the third period. Alex Ovechkin then scored a power-play goal with 2:49 left to tie it.

Florida rookie Jonathan Huberdeau had his first multigoal game, and Drew Shore scored his first NHL goal. Tomas Fleischmann and Shawn Matthias also scored for the Panthers, and Scott Clemmensen made 23 saves.

Mike Ribeiro, Karl Alzner and Matt Hendricks also scored for the Capitals. Braden Holtby, who shut out Florida 5-0 on Saturday stopped 27 shots.

Brouwer took a pass on the right wing from Nicklas Backstrom and skated in alone on Clemmensen. His first shot was stopped, but Brouwer put in the rebound.

Shore's goal, the result of being hit by the puck after Holtby mishandled Jack Skille's centering pass, gave the Panthers a two-goal cushion at 6:25 of the third.

The 19-year-old Huberdeau, the No. 3 pick in the 2011 draft, scored two second-period goals - one on a double re-direct - to give the Panthers a 4-3 edge. Alzner and Hendricks also scored in the second.

Holtby stopped Peter Mueller from in close on a two-on-none rush with Shore to keep the game tied at 3.

Florida led 2-1 after one period on goals by Fleischmann and Matthias.

Ribeiro's power-play goal gave Washington a 1-0 lead at 4:26 of the first period. The Capitals have scored a power-play goal in five consecutive games.

The Panthers, who began a four-game homestand, will host Montreal (Thursday), Tampa Bay (Saturday) and Toronto (Monday). .
