Washington (AP) — Jay Beagle scored with 5:11 left in the third period to give the injury-ravaged Washington Capitals a 1-0 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night.

 Dmitry Orlov’s shot was stopped by Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard, but Beagle tapped in the rebound for his fourth of the season. Braden Holtby had 25 saves for his first shutout this season and 24th of his career.
 Washington was coming off a seven-goal outburst against Pittsburgh on Wednesday after scoring just five goals in its previous four games.
Howard finished with 27 saves for the Red Wings, who have lost three straight for the first time this season.
