Kings beat Red Wings for 9th straight victory

Michal Handzus scored his second goal on a rebound with 2:21 to play, and the Los Angeles Kings furiously rallied from a three-goal deficit to set a franchise record with their ninth straight victory, 4-3 over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday. Alexander Frolov, Handzus and Ryan Smyth scored in the second period after Los Angeles fell behind 3-0 in the first. Jonathan Quick made 20 saves for the Kings, who surpassed the Second Six franchise's eight-game winning streaks in 1991-92 and 1972-73. Henrik Zetterberg scored two goals for the Red Wings, who lost for the ninth time in 12 games while losing three players, including forward Tomas Holmstrom, to injuries. Valtteri Filppula also scored for Detroit, and Jimmy Howard made 23 saves. (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
