LOS ANGELES -- Just a few minutes into his first game back from a serious groin strain, Jonathan Quick had to do the splits to make a save. Los Angeles star goalie survived those perilous gymnastics with no problem, and he eventually backstopped the Kings to a skid-snapping win. Quick stopped 27 shots in his return from a 24-game injury absence, Jeff Carter scored the tiebreaking goal with 7:55 to play, and the Kings snapped their five-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night. Dustin Brown tied it early in the third period and Carter added an empty-net goal as Los Angeles ended its longest skid in coach Darryl Sutters tenure with a late rally. They also got a boost from the return of their Conn Smythe Trophy-winning goalie, who hadnt played since injuring his groin Nov. 12 in Buffalo. "The team played great in front of me," Quick said. "I gave up a couple of rebounds, and the guys cleared them out. We kept fighting and got a couple of breaks." Quick was selected for his second U.S. Olympic team Wednesday despite his lengthy absence, and the Kings put their $58 million goalie right back in the lineup immediately after activating him from injured reserve. He gave up an early power-play goal, but shut down the Canucks over the final 47 minutes -- including two breathtaking stops on a breakaway by Daniel Sedin in the final seconds. "We know who he is," Carter said. "First game back, I thought he was sharp." Ryan Kesler scored for the Canucks, who lost their third straight despite 46 saves by Roberto Luongo in his own return from a three-game injury absence since Dec. 22. "We dont have a sniff of a chance if he doesnt play the way he did," Vancouver coach John Tortorella said of Luongo. "I shudder to think what the score would be. So lets not kid ourselves. The game wasnt as close as the score. We have a ton of work to do." Sutter coached his 1,000th NHL game as his team stumbled home from a winless four-game road trip. Although their scoreless streak stretched to 120 minutes, the Kings rallied to win when trailing after two periods for the first time since Nov. 14. Brown finally cracked Luongos shutout bid on the Kings 37th shot, knocking home a cross-ice puck from Justin Williams -- and then accidentally kicking Luongo in the face when Mike Santorelli upended him in the crease. Carter scored the tiebreaker after an exceptional play by Dwight King, who lifted Jason Garrisons stick and outraced the Vancouver defenceman to a puck before putting a pass on Carters tape for his 14th goal. "(King) made a heck of a play there," Carter said after his second multigoal game of the season. "I thought we did a lot of good things in the first two periods, but Luongo played really good. We stuck with it and kept working." Carter gave no chance to Luongo, but the veteran has been solid all season for the Canucks, boosting the gold medal winners chances of being Canadas starting goalie in Sochi next month. "Carter released it quick, and it went through our D-men," Luongo said. "Youve got to give him credit. It was a good shot, but I would have liked to have gotten a piece of that." Quick could be Luongos starting counterpart for the U.S. team, although hell have to prove hes back in top form over the next five weeks. Quick looked sharp in the opening minutes, but Kesler scored his 16th goal while falling to the ice, beating his fellow U.S. Olympians glove off a cross-ice pass from Daniel Sedin. The goal eased Vancouvers 1-for-19 slump on the power play over the last seven games. "In our division, were going to have to learn to battle harder, and it starts with our forwards, as far as the forecheck," Tortorella said. "Our D was under siege all night long, and if were going to compete in our division, we need to be more consistent."

Justin Braun started the comeback with a goal late in the second and Patrick Marleau and Brent Burns scored tying goals earlier in the third for the Sharks, who have 10 wins and one tie in their last 11 home games against Pittsburgh. Burns added an empty-net goal and Antti Niemi made 19 saves for San Jose. Olli Maatta scored two goals and Chris Kunitz also scored for the Penguins, who last won at the Shark Tank on Oct. 22, 1997. Jeff Zatkoff made 42 saves in his first appearance since beating Los Angeles on Jan. 30. But Zatkoff would probably like another chance to stop the goal scored by Thornton. On what looked like an innocent play, Thornton flipped a shot from the blue line that fooled Zatkoff and went in over his shoulder. It gave the Sharks just their third win all season when trailing after two periods. The goal capped a wild third period that featured the Sharks tying the game with a short-handed goal, falling back behind and then tying the game again all in a span of 1:34. The scoring spree started after Matt Nieto was given a double-minor for high-sticking Simon Despres. The Sharks killed off the first penalty and then tied the game at 2 on a spectacular goal from Marleau, who took a pass from Jason Demers, faked out Evgeni Malkin and then beat Zatkoff with a backhand. The Penguins went back ahead 21 seconds later with their second power-play goal of the game when Brandon Sutter set up Maatta for his first-career two-goal game. That lead was also short-lived when Burns took a pass in the slot from Joe Pavelski 1:13 later and beat Zatkoff with his second goal in as many games after a 19-game scoring drought. Trailing 2-0, the Sharks took over control of the play in the final half of the second period thanks to some hard hits dished out by RRaffi Torres, Jason Demers and Brent Burns.dddddddddddd That energy translated into a goal when Tommy Wingels prevented Zatkoff from freezing a puck to set up Brauns point shot through a screen by Adam Burish. The goal ended an 18-game drought by San Joses defencemen since Dan Boyle scored against Detroit on Jan. 9. The Penguins got some reinforcements from deals made before Wednesdays trade deadline with forward Lee Stempniak and centre Marcel Goc making their debuts for Pittsburgh after arriving in town shortly after the morning skate. The game got off to a fast-paced start with no stoppage in the first 5-plus minutes. The Sharks threatened on a power-play midway through the period before the Penguins got goals from Maatta and Kunitz in the final 5 minutes to take the 2-0 lead. That was San Joses biggest deficit after the first period all season. NOTES: Goc had an assist on the first goal. ...
