(Sports Network) - The Washington Capitals will aim for their first three-game winning streak of the season tonight when they visit the Carolina Hurricanes at the RBC Center.

The Capitals are coming off Monday's overtime victory over the visiting Ottawa Senators. Chris Clark's tally on a deflection 1:33 into the extra session sent Washington to a dramatic 4-3 win at the Verizon Center.

Alexander Ovechkin scored twice, including the tying goal with 24.4 seconds remaining, to send the game into overtime.

On the game-winner, Caps forward Alexander Semin sent a floating wrister from the boards near the right point toward the net. Clark, stationed at the edge of the right circle, redirected the puck off the shaft of his stick past a confused and lunging Martin Gerber.

Matt Pettinger got the other goal, while Semin assisted on the final three scores for the Capitals. Brent Johnson stopped all 21 shots he faced in relief of Olaf Kolzig to pick up the win for Washington, winners in three of their last four. Kolzig had a rough night, giving up three goals on five shots before hitting the showers.

Meanwhile, the Hurricanes will try to rebound from a loss when they begin a three-game homestand tonight.
