Los Angeles Kings rally for 4-3 overtime win over Dallas, take over 4th place in West

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Jeff Carter deflected the winning goal off his upper body with 51 seconds left in overtime, and the Los Angeles Kings took sole possession of fourth place in the Western Conference with a 4-3 victory over the Dallas Stars on Sunday night.

Captain Dustin Brown scored two goals for the defending Stanley Cup champions, and Mike Richards scored an early goal before putting the puck off Carter's chest for the overtime winner — Carter's 25th goal of a standout season.

The Kings (26-14-5) moved two points clear of San Jose for fourth place and home-ice advantage in the first round after the Sharks lost to Columbus.

Alex Goligoski scored early in the third period and Kari Lehtonen stopped 27 shots for the Stars, who have lost three of four.

Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
