LOS ANGELES (AP) -Michal Handzus scored his second goal of the game with 2:21 to play, and the Los Angeles Kings furiously rallied from a three-goal deficit to set a franchise record with their ninth straight victory, 4-3 over Detroit on Saturday.

Alexander Frolov, Handzus and Ryan Smyth scored in the second period after Los Angeles fell behind 3-0 in the first. Jonathan Quick made 20 saves for the Kings, who surpassed the franchise's eight-game winning streaks in 1991-92 and 1972-73.

Handzus also had an assist, giving him six points in the last two games.

Henrik Zetterberg scored twice for Detroit, and Valtteri Filppula added a goal. The Red Wings have lost nine of their last 12 games.

BOSTON (AP) - Pavel Demitra tied it on a tip-in with 4:42 left and scored the only shootout goal to help Vancouver hand Boston its 10th straight loss.

The defeat was the ninth in a row at home for the Bruins. Both streaks are the second-longest in club history.

The Canucks ended a two-game skid on the fourth stop of the longest road swing in NHL history, a 14-game trip caused by the Olympics.

Roberto Luongo stopped all three Bruins shootout shots, and Demitra beat rookie Tuukka Rask on Vancouver's first attempt.

Zdeno Chara and Michael Ryder scored first-period power-play goals for Boston, and Mason Raymond scored in the second for Vancouver.

DALLAS (AP) - Marty Turco made 34 shots for his 39th career shutout, rookie Jamie Benn had his first two-goal game, and Dallas snapped road-weary's season-best winning streak at six games.

James Neal scored his team-high 23rd goal, Loui Eriksson scored short-handed for his 22nd goal of the season, and the Stars improved to 10-2 in their last 12 home games in the second meeting between the teams in Texas in less than a week.

MONTREAL (AP) - Brian Gionta had two goals and an assist, and Jaroslav Halak made 18 saves in Montreal's third straight victory.

Tomas Plekanec, Scott Gomez and Mathieu Darche also scored for the Canadiens. Pascal Dupuis, Bill Guerin and Evgeni Malkin scored for Pittsburgh.
