LOS ANGELES (AP) - Drew Doughty scored on a fierce slap shot with 1:20 left in overtime, and the Los Angeles Kings recovered from T.J. Galiardi's dramatic tying goal for a 4-3 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Monday night.
Ryan Smyth scored his second goal with 10:05 left in regulation for the Kings, but Galiardi tied it on a desperate rebound goal with 6.6 seconds to play. Los Angeles rallied for its second straight victory on a power-play goal by Doughty, their rising star defenseman.
Wayne Simmonds also scored and Jonathan Quick made 18 saves as Los Angeles moved into a fifth-place tie with Nashville in the Western Conference at 87 points apiece - two more than seventh-place Colorado.
