Eric Staal and Jeff Skinner lit the lamp for the Hurricanes, who have lost four of five. Cam Ward stopped 36-of-39 shots.

"Both goalies were good, Ward was there when we needed him and made some big saves," said Staal. "They had a lot of shots and quality opportunities and he made some key saves, we just didn't get enough."

Stoll scored on the power play at the 7:53 mark of the first period. Dustin Brown's pass from behind the net went to Stoll, who beat Ward from in close.

Skinner tied things up at 17:16 when his shot from the right circle beat Quick.

The Kings took the lead back on Pearson's goal at 2:59. Mike Richards' shot from the side of the net bounced off Ward's shoulder and Pearson batted in the loose puck.
