Dustin Brown converted his own rebound with 1 minute, 27 seconds remaining to lift the Los Angeles Kings to a 5-4 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday.

Brown’s first attempt went off the back of Blackhawks defenseman Johnny Oduya, but it bounced back to the captain, who sent it past Corey Crawford for his 12th of the season. Anze Kopitar set up the score by winning a face off in Chicago’s end.

Kopitar also had a goal in the second period and Jarrett Stoll and Dwight King also scored for Los Angeles.

Michael Frolik had two goals and an assist for Chicago, and Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews also scored.

Minnesota’s Zach Parise scored two goals and added an assist as the Wild extended their winning streak to six games with a 7-4 win over the Dallas Stars.

Both of Parise’s goals came on bounces that barely made it over the goal line. Mikko Koivu and Matt Cullen each had a goal and assist for Minnesota, who snapped a 16-game losing streak in Dallas (0-11-5).

Dany Heatley added an insurance goal with 1:28 remaining and Pierre-Marc Bouchard added an empty-netter with 16 seconds left.

Jaromir Jagr, Alex Goligoski, Trevor Daley and Philip Larsen scored for the Stars.

In Glendale, Arizona, Pavel Datsyuk scored Detroit’s second power-play goal in the third period and had an assist to lift the Red Wings to a 3-2 win over the Phoenix Coyotes.

Ian White also had a goal as the Red Wings scored on the power play for the eighth straight game to win for the fifth time in six games.

Martin Hanzal and Rob Klinkhammer scored for Phoenix, who have lost six straight for the first time since 2009.

Brent Burns and Martin Havlat each had a goal and an assist for San Jose as the Sharks sent the Anaheim Ducks to their third home loss in four days 5-3, while Patrice Bergeron scored the equalizer with 9:24 left in regulation, then put Boston ahead in the shootout as the Bruins beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2.

In other games, the Ottawa Senators beat the New Jersey Nets 3-2 in a shootout and the Nashville Predators edged the Edmonton Oilers, also 3-2.
