Alec Martinez scored the tiebreaking goal on a power play with 11:45 to play, Jonathan Quick made 24 saves, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Carolina Hurricanes 3-1 Saturday for their third victory in four days since the Olympic break.

Mike Richards scored his second goal since Thanksgiving and Justin Williams added an empty-net goal for the Kings, who have roared out of the break with three wins in three cities in about 70 hours. Low-scoring Los Angeles put up eight goals at Colorado and Calgary before holding off the Hurricanes in the Kings' return to Staples Center.

Andrej Sekera scored and Anton Khudobin stopped 28 shots for the Hurricanes, who have lost three straight on their five-game road trip out of the break.
