WASHINGTON - Anze Kopitar scored two goals and added an assist, and the Los Angeles Kings dealt the Washington Capitals a rare home loss, winning 5-4 Thursday night despite allowing Alex Ovechkin's 200th NHL goal.

Los Angeles was one of only two opponents - San Jose is the other - against whom Ovechkin never had scored.

But he scored unassisted with about 9 1/2 minutes left, pulling Washington within 4-3. It was Ovechkin's league-high 37th goal this season and made him one of NHL four players to reach 200 goals in his first four seasons, joining Wayne Gretzky, Mike Bossy and Mario Lemieux.
