SALZBURG, Austria - Anze Kopitar scored with 46 seconds remaining to give the Los Angeles Kings a 4-3 win over Swedish champions Farjestad BK on Wednesday in the final of an exhibition tournament.

Kopitar, who just got back on the ice after a 2-minute penalty, scored after a rush through the Swedish defence.

After a scoreless first period, Eero Somervuori and Emil Kaberg scored to give Farjestad BK a 2-0 lead, but Patrick O'Sullivan and Lubomir Visnovsky evened the score in the next five minutes.

Mathias Johansson put the Swedish club in front again, but the Kings, who defeated Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg 7-6 in the opening match on Tuesday, rallied again as Mike Cammalleri and Kopitar scored in the final period.

It was the last exhibition game for the Kings before opening the NHL season with a two-game series against the Anaheim Ducks in London on Saturday.

Earlier Wednesday, Red Bull Salzburg defeated Swiss champions HC Davos 5-3 to finish third in the Red Bull Salute tournament.
