LOS ANGELES (AP) – Trevor Zegras scored their second goal in extra time and extended the Anaheim Ducks winning streak to eight – and made the 1,000th franchise win – winning the Washington Capitals on Tuesday night 3-2.
Ryan Getzlaf scored 1,000 career points and Troy Terry extended his points tube to 15 matches at the Ducks, which remained unbeaten in November and have won six tubes at home until 31 October. John Gibson stopped 28 shots for the Ducks.

This is the second game in a row after Zegras have scored two goals. The winner of his overtime with 45 seconds left won Washington goalkeeper Vitek Vanecek in a wrist shot.
Garrett Pilon and Tom Wilson scored and Vanecek blocked 28 Capitals, whose four-game winning streak was cut.
Getzlaf and Terry each scored a point at Cam Fowler’s finish at the start of the first set. Getzlaf became the 92nd player in NHL history to score 1,000 points on the primary pass. He is also the seventh active player to reach a milestone.
Meanwhile, Terry is in a tie with Connor McDavid of Edmonton in the longest scoring streak in the NHL. No other player has recorded a series of more than nine matches. Terry’s series is also a draw with Getzlaf, the third longest in franchise history. Corey Perry has a record of 19 games, which was achieved in 2009.
Fowler took Getzlaf’s cross pass, which deviated from the boards and tore a shot past Vanecek at the first period at 3.32 to get his third goal of the season.
Pilon scored his first NHL goal and tied the match in the third round. Anaheim returned to the lead in the middle of the episode when Zonny Milano fed Zegras, who put a wrist shot between Vanecek’s legs.
Wilson sent it on overtime with 2 1/2 minutes left in the third round as he directed John Carlson’s shot from the point to the net. The goal was fifth for Wilson in the last seven games.

Pylon became the Fifth Capitals newcomer this season, scoring his first goal of his career in the third set at 5:36. Pilon was called in when striker Lars Eller was placed on the NHL COVID-19 list before the game.
Nick Jensen initially looked to equalize in the first set of the match, but the goal crashed when an immediate rematch found Garnet Hathaway was offside.
GRAND OL ‘GETZLAF
Ducks ’19th choice in the 2003 NHL Draft, Getzlaf is the 39th player in league history to score the first 1,000 points all on the same club and the 45th to score at least 1,000 points in a single series.
The captain of the Ducks has had two significant milestones this season, the first of which came on October 31, when he became the scoring leader in the franchise career with the game’s winning goal against Montreal. He overtook Selanne, who had 988 points in two innings and 15 seasons.
Getzlaf has scored 280 goals and 720 assists in 17 consecutive games in 17 consecutive games. He is third in the league with 17 entry points and ninth in the tie with 18 points.
