Jason Chimera scored a short-handed goal 2:27 into the third period and Marcus Johansson added an insurance tally eight minutes later, leading the Washington Capitals to a 3-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils Friday night.

The Capitals (10-4) snapped a two-game losing streak and broke a three-game winning run for the Devils (7-6-1). The teams will meet again Saturday night in Washington, and the Capitals will be looking for their sixth win in seven games over New Jersey.

With Mike Knuble in the penalty box for tripping, Chimera stole the puck in the Devils end, pushed it off the boards, and outskated two defensemen for the goal. Johansson faked out diving goalie
