Nic Dowd scored 2:37 into overtime, and the Los Angeles Kings snapped a three-game skid with a 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night.

Trevor Lewis and Matt Greene scored slump-busting goals and Peter Budaj made 21 saves in a strong bounce-back effort for the Kings, who had been shut out in three consecutive games before they beat the defending Stanley Cup champions.

Sidney Crosby scored two goals for Pittsburgh, giving him six in five games to start his season.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 24 shots for the Penguins, whose four-game winning streak ended.

The Kings started overtime with a power play, but Pittsburgh easily killed it. Dowd then got in alone on Fleury and roofed a backhand for his second NHL goal.
