Casey Aman, Adam Mendleson and Dylan Hewlett also scored for the visitors. Symons’ second of the game briefly tied the game at 5-5 with 4:09 remaining on the clock, but the hosts beat Kings’ goaltender Liam Vanderkooi for the sixth time just 18 seconds later to secure the win.

Capitals outshot the Kings 40-34. Attendance at Cowichan Community Centre was 897.
