Pearson's OT goal beats Hurricanes as Kings stay hot

(TSX / STATS) -- LOS ANGELES -- The winning streak seemed in serious jeopardy for the Los Angeles Kings after the Carolina Hurricanes scored twice in the final seven minutes of regulation to tie the score, and then held the puck and two members of the Kings on the ice for nearly three minutes to start overtime.

But the momentum changed in a hurry when Tanner Pearson brought puck into the Carolina zone and scored off his own rebound with 20 seconds left in overtime, lifting the Kings to their eighth consecutive victory, 3-2, on Saturday night at Staples Center.

"We're winning in different ways," Kings center Anze Kopitar said. "None of these wins are coming easy. We're grinding and we're getting after it."
