Streaking Kings beat Capitals in SO
Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - The Los Angeles Kings continued their road success and dominance of the Washington Capitals with a 5-4 shootout win.
The Kings rallied from a two-goal deficit in the third period on Tuesday, scoring three times to go up 4-3, but Washington rookie Evgeny Kuznetsov forced overtime with his first NHL goal inside the final minute of regulation.
An entertaining overtime period didn't produce a game-winning tally.
Kuznetsov had the puck roll off his stick to begin the shootout. Anze Kopitar then slipped a backhander through the pads of Capitals goaltender Jaroslav Halak.
After Los Angeles netminder Jonathan Quick made a save on Eric Fehr, Jeff Carter ripped a wrister past Halak's glove to secure the Kings' seventh straight win away from Staples Center.
The win was also the seventh in a row against Washington.
