Brown, Kopitar propel Kings past Oilers

Anze Kopitar scored the game-winning goal to cap a three-point outing, and Dustin Brown collected a hat trick as the host Los Angeles Kings snapped a two-game losing skid by beating the Edmonton Oilers 5-2 Sunday night.

With the score tied 2-2 after two periods, Derek Forbort made a great pass to spring Kopitar on a breakaway, and the Kings captain snapped a blocker-side shot into the net at the 4:27 mark of the third period for his seventh goal of the season.

Goalie Cal Petersen, who made 32 saves, held strong between the pipes the rest of the way for the Kings -- who sit last in the league -- before Brown iced the affair with the first of his team's two empty-net goals into final minute.

Through two periods, it was a tale of two snipers.

Brown opened the scoring at 7:56 of the first period with a tap-in tally. Kopitar led the attack on an odd-man rush, then fed a cross-crease pass that Brown easily slipped home.

Alex Chiasson put the Oilers on the board on the power play at 13:19. Chiasson set up shop at the doorstop, and Connor McDavid's pass to the front of the net banked off Chiasson's leg and into the cage.

Chiasson gave the Oilers a 2-1 lead at 2:16 of the second period with another goal that came from being at the net. Defenseman Oscar Klefbom drove down from the point position and put the puck to the front, where Chiasson was on the spot to find the loose puck and tuck it home for his 10th tally of the season.

However, Brown's second of the night on the power play at 4:13 of the middle frame tied the affair. Kopitar button-hooked at the wall before firing a cross-ice pass to Brown for the one-timer.

Kings rookie Matt Luff also scored with an empty net, which gives him goals in four consecutive games -- the first four tallies of his NHL career.

Cam Talbot stopped 27 shots for the Oilers, who have just one win in their past five games.
