Alexander Semin scored twice, Troy Brouwer tallied the tiebreaking goal midway through the second period, and the Washington Capitals halted the New York Rangers’ five-game winning streak with a 4-1 victory on Wednesday night.

With the game tied 1-1, Brouwer got tangled with Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh in front of the New York. Brouwer not only screened goalie Martin Biron but redirected John Carlson’s drive from the left point for his 10th goal of the season at 10:24.

Marcus Johansson also scored for the Capitals, who snapped a two-game skid by beating the top team in the Eastern Conference. Alex Ovechkin had two assists.

Brandon Dubinsky scored for the Rangers, 7-3 in their last 10 games.

Tomas Vokoun, making his first start in six games, made 31 saves for the victory.
