Jeff Carter scored during a two-man advantage in Los Angeles' three-goal second period, and the Kings completed a sweep of their six-game homestand with a 5-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday.

Columbus left wing Nick Foligno was seriously injured with 11:34 left in third period and taken off on a stretcher with a neck brace. Carter checked him along the boards in front of the Kings' bench and Foligno's head rammed into the elbow of linesman Shane Heyer, who had jumped on top of the dasher in an attempt to avoid both players.

Tanner Pearson scored twice in the third for Los Angeles.
