Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Johnny Oduya (27) deflects Los Angeles Kings right wing Justin Williams' shot during the first period of Monday's game in Chicago.

 

CHICAGO (AP) — Anze Kopitar scored, then Jarrett Stoll got a short-handed goal. There was another score in the final second of the second period.

Once the Los Angeles Kings got going, the Chicago Blackhawks just couldn’t stop them.

Brown converted his own rebound with 1:27 remaining and the Kings scored all their goals in the final two periods of a 5-4 victory over the Blackhawks on Monday night.

“It was just a team effort,” Kopitar said. “Going into the game we knew we had to get 20 guys on board with a team effort was the intention we had. We just stuck with it.”

It was Los Angeles’ highest-scoring game since a 5-2 victory over San Jose on March 16 and came on the heels of consecutive shutout losses to Dallas and Vancouver. The scoreless stretch reached 150 minutes, 35 seconds before Kopitar picked up his 10th goal of the season at 4:21 in the second.

“We got good games out of our third and fourth lines, and Brownie scored a big goal at the end,” Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. “They’re probably not happy with the way they played, and if we’d have lost, we wouldn’t have been
happy with the way we played.”

Brown’s first attempt went off the back of Blackhawks defenseman Johnny Oduya, but it bounced right back to the captain, who sent it past Corey Crawford for his 12th of the season. Kopitar set up the score by winning a faceoff in Chicago’s end.
