VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Anze Kopitar scored 48 seconds into overtime, finishing off the Los Angeles Kings' come-from-behind 3-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Monday night.

Kopitar took a feed from Slava Voynov and beat goalie Roberto Luongo with a shot into the top corner to send the Canucks to their seventh loss in eight games.

Mike Richards tied it with 2:54 left in regulation, and Kyle Clifford also scored for Los Angeles (16-6-3). Ben Scrivens made 37 saves for the Kings, who have earned at least a point in 10 straight games (7-0-3).

Henrik Sedin and Chris Tanev scored for Vancouver (12-9-5), which went 1-2-3 on a season-high, six-game homestand.

Luongo made 19 stops for the Canucks, who are 1-4-3 against Pacific Division rivals this season.

Vancouver's 28th-ranked power play was 0-for-7 before Sedin beat Scrivens with a quick shot on the Canucks' eighth advantage, snapping a 1-1 tie at 6:59.

After Scrivens made a number of big stops to keep the Kings in the game, Richards took a feed from Jeff Carter and snapped a shot past Luongo to make it 2-2.

Vancouver had dropped six of seven before Monday, with the lone victory coming over Columbus on Friday. The Canucks scored only seven times in those six losses.

Down 1-0 after the first period, Vancouver found some life after Henrik Sedin took a big hit from Jordan Nolan midway through the second. Sedin stayed down for a moment but didn't miss a shift.

The play woke the Canucks up and they started to take the body more, with Ryan Stanton eventually fighting Nolan.

After Vancouver killed off a penalty from the scrum that accompanied that fight, Tanev fired a harmless looking shot from the point that Scrivens couldn't get all of. Tanev's first of the season tied it 1-1 at 17:04.
