Recap: Los Angeles vs. Anaheim

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Slava Voynov, Jake Muzzin and Jeff Carter scored third-period goals to lift the Los Angeles Kings over the Anaheim Ducks, 5-2, on Monday.

Voynov and Dustin Brown each had a goal and an assist for the Kings, who have won four in a row. Dustin Penner also lit the lamp.

Jonathan Quick made 24 saves for Los Angeles, which avenged a 7-4 loss to the Ducks in Anaheim on Feb. 2.

"This one feels big, it's a division game, a team that's in second place in our conference and a team that we want to eventually catch so to get two points especially in regulation and have a third strong period like that it's a big momentum booster for the club," Kings defenseman Drew Doughty said.

Andrew Cogliano and Saku Koivu scored for the Ducks, who had won six straight.

Viktor Fasth, who signed a two-year extension on Feb. 20, suffered his first loss after stopping 20-of-24 shots. Fasth, who fell to 8-1-0, was trying to tie Ray Emery for the longest winning streak to start a National Hockey League career.

"Some days you have those games when it feels you can track the puck much easier," Fasth said. "Today I was fighting hard. I made some bad decisions out there. We just have to forget this and start working harder next game."

With the score tied at 2-2, Voynov put the Kings ahead at the 4:46 mark of the third period. Anze Kopitar's pass from behind the net went to Voynov, whose one-timer from the right circle snuck past Fasth.

Muzzin added a power-play goal at the 6:23 mark to give Los Angeles a 4-2 lead. Muzzin's wrist shot near the top of the right circle beat Fasth.

Carter's empty-net goal with 20.8 seconds remaining ended Anaheim's bid at a franchise-record tying seventh straight victory.

The Ducks broke a scoreless tie just 13 seconds into the second period. Ryan Getzlaf threw the puck on net from the corner and Cogliano jammed it home.

Penner's tip-in of Jarret Stoll's pass made it 1-1 at the 3:16 mark.

Koivu's power-play goal at the 5:51 mark put Anaheim back in front.

However, Brown started Los Angeles' comeback with 2:07 left in the middle stanza. Brown's snap shot from the high slot hit off the crossbar before going in.
