The LA Kings had a few things to celebrate on Saturday as they beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-0 at STAPLES Center. 

For one, Jonathan Quick earned his 300th win, in a shutout at that.

And... Anze Kopitar scored his 300th goal.

To do so on home ice, and in a big win, must have been special for the forward. 

"It's pretty special," Kopitar said. "To be honest with you, I was thinking I would get it a bit quicker than that..."

Even though the goal came later than expected, it was worth the wait.

Kopitar buried a cross ice pass from Dustin Brown, before celebrating with his linemate Ilya Kovalchuk.

Quick was more than happy to share the milestone night with his teammate as well.

"For [Kopitar], that's awesome," Quick said. "He's more of a playmaker than a goalscorer, so 300 goals is a lot. I'm happy for him."

Here's to another 300!
