By  | 

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Dustin Brown scored 1:16 into overtime and the Los Angeles Kings overcame a blown third-period lead to beat the San Jose Sharks 5-4 on Wednesday night.

After Dany Heatley's pass to the point went out of the Sharks' zone, Brown took the puck at center ice, skated in and beat Evgeni Nabokov through the legs for his seventh goal of the season.

Anze Kopitar ended the longest scoring drought of his career with a power-play tally in a three-goal second period for Los Angeles. Teddy Purcell, Jarret Stoll and Drew Doughty also scored for the Kings, who have won five of six and snapped a five-game losing streak in San Jose.

Manny Malhotra tied the game for the Sharks when he beat Erik Ersberg with a wrist shot for his seventh goal of the season with 7:41 remaining in regulation.
