Kings edge Penguins 3-2, tie franchise record with 8th straight road win

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Drew Doughty scored early in the third period to give Los Angeles the lead for good, and the Kings beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2 Thursday night for their franchise-record tying eighth straight road win.

Alec Martinez and Jeff Carter also scored for Los Angeles, and Martin Jones made 35 saves as the Kings matched the club road record set nearly 40 years ago.

The Penguins rallied from a 2-0 deficit to tie it on goals by Chris Kunitz and Taylor Pyatt. Jeff Zatkoff stopped 29 shots but couldn't get a handle on Doughty's slap shot 3:51 into the third.

A potential tying goal by Penguins forward Brandon Sutter midway through the third was waved off due to goaltender interference.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
