Anze Kopitar scored 48 seconds into overtime, finishing off the Los Angeles Kings' come-from-behind 3-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Monday night.

Kopitar took a feed from Slava Voynov and beat goalie Roberto Luongo with a shot into the top corner to send the Canucks to their seventh loss in eight games.

Mike Richards tied it with 2:54 left in regulation, and Kyle Clifford also scored for Los Angeles (16-6-3). Ben Scrivens made 37 saves for the Kings, who have earned at least a point in 10 straight games (7-0-3).

Henrik Sedin and Chris Tanev scored for Vancouver (12-9-5), which went 1-2-3 on a season-high, six-game homestand.

Luongo made 19 stops for the Canucks, who are 1-4-3 against Pacific Division rivals this season.
