Kings Beat Caps 2-1 In SO To Give Sutter 500th Win

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Marian Gaborik got the deciding goal in the shootout and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Washington Capitals 2-1 Thursday night to give Darryl Sutter his 500th regular-season victory as an NHL coach.

Jonathan Quick tied Rogie Vachon for the most career victories by a Kings goaltender and stopped Alex Ovechkin, who leads the league with 46 goals, on the Capitals’ second shot in the tiebreaker. Ovechkin is 2 for 15 this season in the tiebreaker and 25 for 83 in his career.

Quick made 21 saves, losing his shutout bid with 7:36 remaining when Joel Ward extended his goal-scoring streak to a career-best four games with his 22nd of the season.

Anze Kopitar scored at 14:09 of the first period for Los Angeles.
