Monday Feb 12, 2018 12:00am

(WASHINGTON) - For a few moments, it looked as if the Detroit Red Wings were headed for another embarrassing loss. Then Tomas Tatar stepped up again. Tatar scored his second goal of the game 2:47 into overtime, and the Red Wings escaped with a 5-4 victory over the Washington Capitals on Sunday. Detroit had dropped three in a row. It blew a 5-2 third-period lead against the New York Islanders on Friday and lost 7-6 in overtime. Tatar beal Braden Holtby for his 14th goal of the season. He also scored with 11 seconds to play in the second period to give Detroit a 4-1 lead. Justin Abdelkader, Luke Glendening and Anthony Mantha also scored for the Red Wings and Jimmy Howard made 23 saves in his first win since Jan. 5. Dylan Larkin, who assisted on both of Tatar's goals, felt the team stayed together after Nicklas Backstrom tied it for Washington with 17 seconds to play. Alex Ovechkin scored his NHL-best 33rd goal for Washington, which was coming off a home-and-home sweep of Columbus. Brett Connolly, Dmitry Orlov and Backstrom scored in the third, and Holtby stopped 24 shots.
