WASHINGTON (AP) - Dainius Zubrus poked in a rebound 2:28 into overtime Thursday night to give the Washington Capitals a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Kings.

Zubrus got his stick on the puck as it lay tantalizing close to the goal line, having trickled past goalie Mathieu Garon and off the right post following a shot by Alexander Semin. It was Zubrus' 19th goal.

Boyd Gordon, Ben Clymer and Chris Clark also scored for the Capitals, and Alex Ovechkin earned a second-period assist to end the longest scoring drought of his young career - he had gone three games without a point.

Anze Kopitar, Alexander Frolov and Lubomir Visnovsky scored for the Kings, who lost to the Capitals on the road for the first time in nearly nine years. They had gone 4-0 with one tie at the Verizon Center since a 3-2 loss on April 4, 1998.

The game was as close as one could expect from two struggling teams. The Kings entered the game having lost 11 of 13, while the Capitals had dropped nine of 12.
