Jeff Carter had a power-play goal and an assist during Los Angeles' four-goal second period, and Jonathan Quick made 30 saves in the Kings' 5-2 victory over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.

Kings defensemen Matt Greene and Robyn Regehr both scored rare goals during the defending Stanley Cup champions' highest-scoring period of the season.

Marian Gaborik and captain Dustin Brown added power-play goals in Los Angeles' second straight victory after losing seven of nine.

Jimmy Hayes and Jussi Jokinen scored for the Panthers, who have lost five of seven. Roberto Luongo stopped 21 shots in two periods before Al Montoya relieved him for the third.

Greene started the Kings' second-period rally with his first goal in nearly 13 months, and Regehr capped it with his first goal since Feb. 26.
