WASHINGTON (AP) _ Mike Ribeiro scored 9:24 into overtime, and the Washington Capitals beat the New York Rangers 2-1 Friday night to regain the momentum –and the lead– in their first-round playoff series.

Ribeiro put in the puck after Troy Brouwer deflected a shot from the blue line.

The Capitals lead the series 3-2. Game 6 is Sunday in New York.

The home team has won every game in the series, with Washington taking the first two and New York pulling even in Games 3 and 4. The Capitals have been fighting history along the way: The franchise has lost eight playoff series in which it has held a two-game lead.

Brian Boyle scored for New York in the first minute. Joel Ward tied it in the second period.
