November 12, 2009|Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Chris Clark scored the deciding goal in the 11th round of the shootout, and backup goalie Semyon Varlamov came on in relief and carried the Washington Capitals to a 5-4 comeback victory over the New York Islanders.

Alexander Semin scored two regulation goals for the Capitals and had one in the second round of the shootout.

Semin gave the Capitals a 1-0 lead just eight seconds in, but the Islanders ended starting goalie Jose Theodore's night with three quick goals. Varlamov stopped 25 of 26 shots and then sealed the win by denying Mark Streit's shootout attempt in the 11th round.
