WASHINGTON -- The Carolina Hurricanes and Washington Capitals compressed most of their excitement into a four-minute span. We score; you score. You score; we score. Sort of like one of those mini-games with the peewee players that are sometimes featured during intermission. Both coaches were aggravated, to say the least, but Carolinas Kirk Muller was in a better frame of mind about the whole thing because his team eventually won, taking a 4-3 victory in overtime Thursday night on Jeff Skinners third goal of the game. "Yeah, its not what coaches are wanting to see," Muller said with a chuckle. "Tonight it just looked like just whenever someone made a mistake, it was in our nets." With Washingtons Dmitry Orlov out of position, Skinner decided the game when he took a pass from Ryan Murphy to cap a 3-on-1 break at 1:20 of the extra period, giving the Hurricanes their second straight win after a five-game losing streak. The goal seemed far removed from the whirlwind stretch early in the second period, when five players scored goals and Alex Ovechkin missed a penalty shot -- all in 3 minutes, 45 seconds. It was a brand of dont-leave-your-seat hockey thats become all too familiar for the Capitals, who have a knack this season for letting up after scoring a goal. "I know its exciting for the fans," said Troy Brouwer, who scored for the Capitals during the goal cavalcade. "I know its a fun game to watch, but weve got to be able to calm it down. Whenever we score a goal -- we had a couple of big goals that put us ahead there -- weve got to be able to build off that and make sure that were not giving them opportunities right away. Its been a problem all year." Skinners second hat trick in less than a month gives him 19 goals for the season. Manny Malhotra also scored for the Hurricanes. With Cam Ward out with a lower body injury, Anton Khudobin made 38 saves in his first start since Oct. 13. Khudobin had been out with a lower body injury and was recalled Tuesday after a two-game conditioning assignment in the AHL. Ovechkin, skating on a new line with Eric Fehr and Mikhail Grabovski, broke a four-game point-less streak with his NHL-leading 31st goal before missing his penalty shot. Brouwer and Steve Oleksy also scored for the Capitals, who have lost three straight and five of six. Philipp Grubauer, who has quickly emerged as the Capitals workhorse in goal ahead of Braden Holtby and Michal Neuvirth, started for the ninth time in 12 games and finished with 29 saves. Skinner scored the lone goal in the first period on a 5-on-3 -- it was more like 5-on-2 1/2 because Washingtons Nicklas Backstrom had a broken stick -- before Ovechkin opened the scoring in the second with a shot that was deflected by defenceman Ron Hainsey and fluttered past Khudobin. Then back and forth they went. Malhotra for the Hurricanes. Brouwer for the Capitals. Ovechkin was dragged down by newly minted U.S. Olympian Justin Faulk and given a penalty shot, but Khudobin poked the puck before the striker could make an attempt on net. Then Oleksy flung the puck toward the crease and watched it get deflected into the net for only his second goal of the season. Skinner got his second of the game when he put in a rebound to tie the score at 3. By then, Capitals coach Adam Oates was all but fed up. "Just mistakes. Mistakes. The guys that are on the ice are veteran guys," Oates said. "We talked about the things we talked about this morning, the icing. Stupid icings when we dont have to. We took a too many men penalty when we dont have to. You know, one of the goals -- (John) Erskine went in the zone and no one covered for him. Thats mistakes by veteran guys. They know better."

McClain hasnt practiced since coming out of last weeks game at Tennessee with a groin injury. He was listed as doubtful for the Rams when Dallas (1-1) released its practice report Friday. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on a weekly radio appearance Friday that McClain, who has 22 tackles, wants to play and thinks he might play. But Jones also called the linebacker "doubtful." When talking to reporters Friday, even McClain sounded unsure of his status. "I dont know. Ive been able to do what theyve asked me to do," McClain said. "Im getting better. Ill do whatever they ask me to do." Linebacker Justin Durant will miss his second game in a row with a groin injury. Receiver Dez Bryant was listed as questionable after limited participation in practice for the second day in a row. He hurt his shoulder against the Titans last week. Coach Jason Garrett said he believes in players being at practice in some way to determine if they can play in the game. At the same time, the coach left open at least a slight possibility of McClain being able to play Sunday. "We dont have these hard and fast rules. Hes in the meetings and hes participating in the meetings. So mentally and emotionally hes getting himself ready to play," Garrett said. "Well see what hes physically able to do." If McClain doesnt play, his most likely replacement would be Anthony Hitchens, the fourth-round drraft pick who would slide over from weakside linebacker.dddddddddddd Hitchens started against the Titans last week, but was in for only eight defensive plays. Sean Lee would have been the starting middle linebacker this season, but he suffered a knee injury during the first off-season workout. Lee is on injured reserve along with Devonte Holloman, who the Cowboys said in training camp has a career-ending neck injury related to a spinal problem that kept him out almost half of his rookie season a year ago. Hitchens said he didnt know how much he would play Sunday. "The more you know, the more comfortable you play, so Im just trying to learn as much as I can right now," Hitchens said. "(McClain) is a good football player. Everyone knows that. The next guy in better step up and carry the load." Keith Smith, a linebacker on the practice squad, took part in practice Friday, and Garrett said it could be necessary to activate him for Sundays game. "Weve been working some different combinations as the week has gone on," Garrett said. Notes: CB Orlando Scandrick will play at least in nickel formations, according to defensive co-ordinator Rod Marinelli. Scandrick was reinstated this week after two games of a four-game suspension because of approved changes in the NFLs collective bargaining agreement on the drug policy. ... RB Joseph Randle (concussion) returned to practice. ... DE Anthony Spencer (knee surgery) had a planned day off after limited participation Wednesday and Thursday, and is out again Sunday.
