Jeff Carter scored the shootout winner to lift the Los Angeles Kings to a 2-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Dwight King also scored for the Kings while Jonathan Quick made 27 saves. Jeff Skinner had Carolina's goal while Cam Ward stopped 36 shots.

Carter went to his backhand in the shootout to beat Ward. Carter had scored four goals in the first four games of the season.

Quick stopped Nathan Gerbe, Alexander Semin and Skinner in the shootout to make Carter's goal hold up as the winner.

Ward, Carolina's No. 1 netminder has yet to win a game this season — both of the Hurricanes' victories have come with back-up Anton Khudobin in net.
