WASHINGTON -- Eric Fehr had two goals and Mikhail Grabovski had three assists and the Washington Capitals earned a 4-1 preseason victory over the Nashville Predators on Wednesday.

Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom each had a goal and an assist. Michal Neuvirth made 33 saves.

Gabriel Bourque scored for Nashville.

Grabovski, who was late to camp because of visa issues, assisted on both goals in his Caps debut Monday, a 3-2 overtime loss at Boston.

Grabovski disrupted a Nashville clear to set up Fehr's first goal at 4:37 of the first.

Grabovski's final assist came when he took a pass from Backstrom and passed it across the crease to Ovechkin for a power-play goal to make it 4-0 at 19:18 of the third period.
