Trevor Lewis and Jarret Stoll scored third-period goals and Dwight King also found the net for the Los Angeles Kings in a 3-1 victory over the Washington Capitals on Saturday night.

The defending Stanley Cup champions have won four in a row, their longest streak since a six-game stretch that followed season-opening losses to the San Jose Sharks and Arizona Coyotes. Jonathan Quick made 27 saves.

Alex Ovechkin scored for the Capitals, his 34th goal of the season and 456th of his career.

That tied Detroit Red Wings great Alex Delvecchip for 54th place on the all-time list.

The Capitals lost to the Kings for the eighth time in their last nine meetings with the exception being a 4-0 win on Feb. 3 at Washington.

Braden Holtby stopped 27 shots for the Capitals.
