LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dwight King had his first career three-goal game, Mike Richards scored the tiebreaking goal on a short-handed breakaway early in the third period, and the Los Angeles Kings blew a four-goal lead before rallying for a 7-4 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday night.

Anze Kopitar ended his 26-game regular-season goal drought and King scored twice during a four-goal first period. Jordan Nolan also scored for the Kings, whose 4-0 lead evaporated in less than 13 minutes starting midway through the second.

Martin Hanzal scored two goals and captain Shane Doan tied it with 17:10 to play for the Coyotes, who had earned a point in seven consecutive games. Jeff Halpern also scored in Phoenix's first regulation loss since Oct. 8.
