Justin Williams and Jarret Stoll scored 53 seconds apart late in the third period to rally the Los Angeles Kings past the Vancouver Canucks 3-2 on Thursday night.

Williams tied the game on a power-play goal with 2:07 left before Stoll scored the winner with 1:14 to go.

Dwight King had the other goal for Los Angeles, which got 14 saves from Jonathan Quick.

Radim Vrbata had a goal and an assist, and Alexandre Burrows also scored for Vancouver. Ryan Miller stopped 37 shots.

The Canucks carried a 2-1 lead into the third despite being outshot 30-10 through two periods, and Miller had to be sharp again 5 minutes in on a shot off the stick of Stoll on a 3-on-2 rush.
