NHL Game Summary - Washington at Los Angeles



(Thursday, March 20th)

Final Score: Los Angeles 2, Washington 1 (SO)

Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Marian Gaborik scored the winner in the third round of the shootout as the Los Angeles Kings edged the Washington Capitals, 2-1, on Thursday.

Gaborik skated in on the last attempt for Los Angeles and buried a wrister over the glove of Jaroslav Halak, and Jonathan Quick sealed the win by stopping Nicklas Backstrom.

Anze Kopitar scored the only goal of regulation for the Kings, who snapped a three-game slide.

Quick stopped 21 shots for the 171st win of his career, tying Rogie Vachon for most wins by a goaltender in franchise history.

"To be honest, I did not know I was that close until a couple games ago and somebody brought it up," said Quick. "It's special and obviously wins are a team effort, so I think that makes it a little more special and enjoyable because it is 20 guys contributing toward the win."

Joel Ward had the only goal and Halak stopped 27 shots for the Capitals, who had a three-game winning streak stopped.

"That's who they are, the goalie played great, the goalie maybe stole it for them, but they play a hard-nose physical game, and they did, and I'm proud of the guys the way they stood up to it," said Washington head coach Adam Oates.

The only goal of the first period went to Los Angeles at the 14:09 mark. Justin Williams had dumped the puck into the Washington end from his own blueline and Gaborik caught up to it in the left corner, sending it back to the circle where Kopitar one-timed it in for his 22nd of the season.

Neither side got on the board in the second period, as Halak stopped 11 shots while Quick turned away eight.

Washington tied the game at 12:24 of the third period when Evgeny Kuznetsov skated around the right wing to the side of the net and sent the puck over to the left circle where Ward got his second shot in for his 22nd of the year.

The Capitals had a power play in the overtime, but were unable to capitalize.
