WASHINGTON - Alex Ovechkin and Eric Fehr each scored twice to power the Washington Capitals to a 6-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night in a preseason game that included five fights.

Fehr has four goals in the last two games and a team-high five in the preseason for the Capitals (4-0-3), who blew a three-goal lead but remained undefeated.

The Flyers trailed 3-0 before Claude Giroux, Scott Hartnell and Wayne Simmonds scored in the final 5:55 of the second period.

Fehr powered his own rebound past Ray Emery to make it 4-3 just 1:35 into the third. Ovechkin followed with his second goal.

Michal Neuvirth made 32 saves for the Capitals.

Tom Wilson and Mathieu Perreault also scored for Washington.
