Kings Fall In Overtime To Wild, 3-2

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Brent Burns scored 2:50 into overtime on the power play, and the Minnesota Wild dealt the Kings a rare home loss with a 3-2 victory at Staples Center. Skating with a 4-on-3 advantage after Drew Doughty's interference infraction in overtime, the Wild peppered Jonathan Quick with several shots. Eventually, Burns was able to one-time a Patrick O'Sullivan feed past Quick from the slot to give Minnesota its second straight victory.

Mikko Koivu and Cal Clutterbuck both scored after a Quick stick-handling gaffe for the Wild, who are 2-0-2 in their last four games. Jose Theodore made 24 saves in the victory. Dustin Brown had a goal and an assist, and Ryan Smyth also scored for the Kings, who failed to complete a perfect four-game homestand. Los Angeles fell to 11-2-1 at home this season. Quick made only 18 stops in defeat.
