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

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
