Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - Teddy Purcell scored the winner in the fourth round of the shootout as the Edmonton Oilers rallied for a 5-4 win over the Washington Capitals. Edmonton scored twice late in the third period to tie the game, and Purcell gave them the win when he buried a wrister past Braden Holtby. Purcell, Derek Roy, Nikita Nikitin and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins all scored in regulation for the Oilers, who have won their last two. Viktor Fasth stopped 20 shots. We can definitely take some positives out of this, said Edmonton head coach Todd Nelson. It was a good character win. The guys stuck with it. Alex Ovechkin scored twice for the Capitals, who have dropped three straight, Nicklas Backstrom and Jay Beagle also lit the lamp, while Holtby allowed four goals on 31 shots. We had this game in pretty good control and then we played that way, said Holtby. Its frustrating and not how we want to play, myself included. Purcell brought the Oilers within 4-3 on a snap shot from the left circle that beat Holtby over his glove with 4:11 to play, and Nugent-Hopkins tied the contest with 1:07 left and Fasth on the bench for an extra attacker on a wrister from the right circle. Ovechkin scored the first two goals of the game, with the first coming on a one-timer from the top of the left circle just 1:48 in. The second was another one-timer from near the same spot on a power play at 13:58. Roy got the Oilers on the board less than a minute later when he tapped home a rebound of a Nail Yakupov shot, but the Caps got the goal back less than three minutes after that when Beagle tipped in a shot from John Carlson. The only goal of the second period came from Edmonton in the waning seconds of the frame, as Nikitin made it a one-goal game with a quick one-timer off a faceoff win with 3.6 seconds left on a power play. Backstroms 15th of the season 6:38 into the third gave the Caps a 4-2 lead. Game Notes Washington plays at Columbus next Tuesday ... Edmonton hosts Minnesota next Tuesday ...

MIAMI -- The flop is having an impact on the playoffs, and its being caught much more than it was in the regular season. Miami guard Dwyane Wade became the latest recipient of a post-season flopping fine Monday when the NBA ordered him to give up $5,000 after a review showed he over-exaggerated a foul during Game 2 of the finals that was charged to San Antonios Manu Ginobili. And theres an ironic twist -- Ginobili is often considered a master flopper, but he wasnt even warned once about it this season. "He took a swipe and he hit me," Wade said Monday, before the fine was announced. "It was a late call by the ref, but he called it." The league saw it a little differently. It was the fifth flopping violation of the playoffs, which works out to one in every 17.2 games. The NBA said 35 flops were caught in the regular season, or one in every 35.1 games. Players are not fined in the regular season until their second flop of the year; in the playoffs, every flop is a fine. "Flopping," Miami guard Shane Battier once said, "is a silent killer." Well, unless it works. Wade drew the foul against Ginobili with 4:09 left in the second quarter on Sunday night. Ginobili, who took a big swipe at the ball about 35 feet from the basket, wound up going to the bench with his third foul of the half. Wade went to the line and made the two resulting free throws, since Miami was already in the bonus. The Heat wound up winning by two points. "I saw Manu coming out of the corner of my eye to try to steal it so my only thing was to make sure that he didnt steal it," Wade said. "He swiped and he wound up hitting me and the ref called a foul. We move on." The Heat-Spurs matchup is tied 1-1, with Game 3 in Miami on Tuesday night. Some of the flops in the playyoffs have been almost circuslike acting jobs, including a pair by Indiana guard Lance Stephenson -- the official leaguewide leader in flopping this season with two violations in the regular season and two more in the post-season.dddddddddddd. Hes had to pay $20,000 for those flops, or basically about 2 per cent of his seasons salary. For Wade, whos made nearly $19 million in salary this season, the $5,000 was mere pocket change. And situations like that were pointed out last year by now-retired NBA Commissioner David Stern, who said the small fine "isnt enough. Youre not going to cause somebody to stop it for $5,000 when the average players salary is $5.5 million." Stern added then that anyone who thought the fine would stop the flop is allowing "hope to prevail over reason." So it would be no surprise if tougher flopping penalties were at least discussed when the NBAs competition committee when that group meets this summer. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said hes not surprised that the rate goes up in the playoffs, saying Monday that it could be as simple a reason as "more people in the league office watching each possession." Besides Stephenson and Wade, the other post-season flop fines have been assessed to Indianas Roy Hibbert and the Spurs Tiago Splitter. All of those flops were cited in the conference-final round or later. Indianas season ended with a third straight playoff loss to the Heat. And not surprisingly, it wouldnt seem like the Pacers are rooting for their conference member this time of year -- a media relations official from East finalists tweeted shortly after the Wade-Ginobili play Sunday that the Heat guard deserved a flopping fine and even made what seemed like a lighthearted plea to the league: "Cmon NBA, do it for Lance."
