David Clarkson scored in the fourth round of the shootout, after Johan Hedberg made a pad save on Nicklas Backstrom, and the New Jersey Devils rallied for a 3-2 victory over the Washington Capitals on Saturday night.

Clarkson skated in on Michael Neuvirth, faked to the right and then lifted a backhander over the sliding goalie to give the Devils a split in a weekend home-and-home series with the Capitals.

Zach Parise also scored for the Devils in the shootout, and Alex Ovechkin connected for Washington.

New Jersey got goals from Petr Sykora and Ryan Carter in the second period to erase a 2-0 deficit. The Devils have won three of four games. Troy Brouwer and Jason Chimera scored for the Capitals in the first.

Washington coach Bruce Boudreau was denied in his first try at his 200th NHL victory.
