Copley is fastest to reach 20th win
Mikey Anderson scored a go-ahead goal in the third period, and the Kings defeated the Washington Capitals 4-2 on Monday night at Crypto.com Arena for their fourth straight win.
Adrian Kempe, Phillip Danault and Vladislav Gavrikov also scored, and Pheonix Copley made 20 saves as the Kings (37-20-8) won their sixth consecutive game on home ice.
Copley (20-4-2) became the fastest goalie in Kings history to reach 20 wins in a season, doing so in 29 games.
Alex Ovechkin scored a power-play goal and Rasmus Sandin had a goal and an assist for the Capitals (3128-6), who failed to pick up a third straight road victory in California. Darcy Kuemper made 37 saves.
Anderson restored the lead at 3-2 for the Kings off the rush with his third goal of the season, which was set up by Quinton Byfield’s fourth assist during a fourgame streak.
Kempe chipped in an empty-net goal with 1.8 seconds left to seal the win.
Kings forward Zack MacEwen made his team debut after he was acquired from Philadelphia on Friday.
