Anze Kopitar scored on a power play 2:32 into overtime after setting up Justin Williams' tying power play goal with 7:39 left in the third period, and the Los Angeles Kings rallied from behind three times Wednesday night to beat the San Jose Sharks 4-3.

Drew Doughty and Jarret Stoll also had goals and Jonathan Quick stopped 17 shots in the first meeting of the season between the Pacific Division rivals, helping the Kings win for the eighth time in 11 games.

Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Joe Pavelski and Logan Couture scored for the Sharks, who finished the first month of the season 10-1-2 and set a franchise record for wins in October. Antti Niemi made 19 saves in the finale of a 3-2 road trip.
