Dustin Brown's late goal gives Los Angeles Kings 5-4 victory over Chicago Blackhawks

CHICAGO - Dustin Brown converted his own rebound with 1:27 remaining, lifting the Los Angeles Kings to a 5-4 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday night.

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

Kopitar also had a goal in the second period to end Los Angeles' scoreless streak at 150 minutes, 35 seconds.

Michael Frolik had two goals and an assist for Chicago, which has lost two in a row. Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews also scored.

Quote of the Day

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
