Kings score four in the third to beat Penguins, 5-2
There's only one word for the third period of the Kings-Penguins game at Staples Center:
Trailing by a goal and undaunted after Anze Kopitar hit the post in the first four minutes, the Kings wore down the Penguins to score four times. Kopitar tied it at 6:17, Jarret Stoll put them ahead at 12:09 after Dustin Brown intercepted a bad clearing pass by Marc-Andre Fleury, Michal Handzus made it 4-2 at 12:32 and Brown applied the finishing touch at 17:30.
The Kings extended their roll to 6-0-2 and ended the Penguins' streak of winning their first seven road games of the season.
