Jordan Staal also scored for Carolina (24-15-2), which dropped to 2-1-0 on its seven-game homestand.
The NHL-leading Capitals (28-9-5) had dropped their last four games against the Hurricanes dating to Games 6 and 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals last season.
DALLAS (AP) — Joe Pavelski had a goal and an assist, and Dallas earned its fourth straight come-from-behind win.
Pavelski was honored before the game for playing in his 1,000th NHL game last month, and then showed why he has lasted so long in the league.
