PANTHER 3, CAPITAL LETTER 2, OT

Verhaeghe scored a 4:57 goal in overtime to keep the NHL’s top team from being pushed to the brink of elimination in the regular season. It’s now a best-of-three series with Game 5 Wednesday night in Florida.
The Panthers were just over two minutes away from the prospect of being KO’d at home. Then, as goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky drew for an additional attacker, Reinhart collected a loose puck after it bounced off Capitals forward Garnet Hathaway and defeated Ilya Samsonov by 2:04 in the third period.
Bobrovsky stopped 14 of 16 shots. Samsonov made 29 saves.
TJ Oshie scored on the power play in the first game, and Evgeny Kuznetsov put Washington ahead with a breakaway goal midway through the third.

Tyler Seguin had a power play goal and Jake Oettinger made 50 saves for Dallas.
Game 5 takes place in Calgary on Wednesday night.
