Jeff Carter scored Los Angeles' first power-play goal of the season and added the only score in the shootout, leading the Kings to a 3-2 comeback victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Monday night.

Defenseman Slava Voynov tied it with 43.2 seconds left in regulation for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who have won two straight after an 0-2-1 start. Jonathan Quick stopped 21 shots for the Kings, including all three Vancouver attempts in the shootout.

Roberto Luongo made 26 saves for Vancouver, which went 1-1-1 on a three-game California road trip. Zack Kassian scored his fourth goal of the season, and Alex Burrows also scored in a rematch of the clubs' stunning playoff series last spring.
