Kings end 4-game slide with 2-1 victory on Regehr's overtime goal.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Jonathan Quick beat fellow Olympic goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky with 24 saves, Jake Muzzin scored the tying goal early in the third period and Robyn Regehr got the game-winner 2:33 into overtime to help the Los Angeles Kings beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-1 on Thursday night.

In the final game for both clubs before the Olympic break, the Kings snapped a four-game losing streak with their second victory in 12 games.

Bobrovsky, last season's Vezina Trophy winner, stopped 18 shots and lost for just the third time in 13 starts. Jack Johnson scored Columbus' goal during a power play early in the first period.

Regehr used teammate Jeff Carter and Blue Jackets defenceman Denis Savard as a screen before slapping his second goal of the season past Bobrovsky from the top of the left circle.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
