Sunrise, FL (Sports Network) - Troy Brouwer scored 32 seconds into overtime to lift the Washington Capitals to a 6-5 come-from-behind victory over the Florida Panthers in the back end of a home-and-home series at BB&T Center.

Down 5-3 in the third period, the Capitals got goals from Eric Fehr and Alex Ovechkin in a 2:18 span, then thwarted a Florida power play that extended into overtime.

Moments after successfully killing the high-sticking penalty assessed to Mathieu Perreault, Nicklas Backstrom sent a pass that resulted in a breakaway for Brouwer.

Florida goalie Scott Clemmensen made the initial stop, but Brouwer was able to bang home his rebound.
