Martin Frk scored the go-ahead-goal in the third period, Gabriel Vilardi had a goal and an assist, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Ottawa Senators 3-2 on Wednesday night for their seventh straight victory.

Trevor Lewis also scored and Calvin Petersen made 24 saves for the Kings, who are 10-2-1 in their past 13 games.

Bobby Ryan and Jayce Hawryluk had goals for the Senators, and Craig Anderson made 36 saves.

Frk scored on an odd-man rush with 4:41 remaining to lead the Kings to their sixth straight win at home after Vilardi tied it at 2 on a shot from the right circle through traffic late on a power play at 9:12. Vilardi has two goals and two assists during a three-game point streak.

Hawryluk was at the edge of the crease to redirect Andreas Englund's shot in during a delayed penalty at 1:57 of the third period to put the Senators up 2-1. Claimed off waivers Florida on Feb. 17, Hawryluk has two goals and five assists in 11 games for the Senators.
