Anze Kopitar scored the winner 48 seconds into overtime Monday as the Los Angeles Kings defeated the Vancouver Canucks 3-2.

Kopitar took a feed from Slava Voynov and beat Roberto Luongo into the top corner to send the Canucks to their seventh loss in eight games.

Mike Richards and Kyle Clifford also scored for Los Angeles (16-6-3).

Ben Scrivens made 37 saves as the Kings picked up at least a point for the 10th straight game (7-0-3).

Henrik Sedin and Chris Tanev scored for Vancouver (12-9-5), which finished a season-long six-game homestand with a record of 1-2-3.

Luongo made 19 stops for the Canucks, who fell to 1-4-3 versus Pacific Division rivals this season.

Vancouver's 28th-ranked power play was a miserable 0 for 7 on the night before Sedin beat Scrivens with a quick shot on the Canucks' eighth man advantage of the night to snap a 1-1 tie at 6:59.

After Scrivens made a number of big stops to keep the Kings alive, Richards took a feed from Jeff Carter and snapped a shot past Luongo with 2:56 left in regulation.

Vancouver had dropped six of seven games before Monday, with the lone victory coming in a 6-2 triumph over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday. In those six defeats, the Canucks had scored just seven times.

Down 1-0 after the first period, Vancouver found some life after Henrik Sedin took a big hit from Jordan Nolan midway through the second. Sedin stayed down for a moment but didn't miss a shift.

The play woke the Canucks up and they started to take the body more, with Ryan Stanton eventually dropping the gloves with Nolan.

After Vancouver killed off a penalty from the scrum that accompanied that fight, Tanev fired a harmless looking shot from the point that Scrivens could only get a piece of to tie the score with his first of the season at 17:04.

The Canucks had plenty of opportunities with the man advantage earlier in the period — including a 5-on-3 and two short 4-on-3s — but the disjointed unit continued to struggle.

Another Kings penalty late in the period gave the Canucks another chance. But Scrivens, who has been stellar in place of injured Kings starter Jonathan Quick, was there to shut the door when called upon as Vancouver outshot L.A. 13-2.

After the Canucks gave up a number of odd-man rushes in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks, including Marcus Kruger's winner in the third period, the Kings opened the scoring Monday on their third 2-on-1 of the night at 13:50 of the first period.

With both fourth lines on the ice, Canucks defenceman Ryan Stanton got caught after some Vancouver pressure, with Clifford and Linden Vey breaking the other way. Vey feathered a pass to Clifford, who made a nice backhand move to beat a sprawling Luongo for his second goal of the season.

Vancouver's anaemic power play went to work later in the period, but didn't even register a shot on Scrivens.
