WASHINGTON (AP) Evgeny Kuznetsov's tiebreaking goal with 122 seconds remaining off an assist from ex-Kings player Justin Williams, a score that withstood a coach's challenge for goalie interference, lifted the NHL-leading Washington Capitals to a 3-1 comeback victory over Los Angeles on Tuesday night.
Kuznetsov's 16th goal, but first in a month, gave him 20 points in his past 14 games. Andre Burakovsky got a secondary assist on that score, after tying the game with 48.1 seconds left in the second period. Jason Chimera added an empty-netter with 8.6 seconds left.
Anze Kopitar put Los Angeles ahead in the first period on a short-handed goal.
