GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Mikkel Boedker scored twice and the Phoenix Coyotes took a four-goal lead and went on to beat the Los Angeles Kings 5-2 on Tuesday night. Shane Doan and Raffi Torres had a goal and assist apiece for the Coyotes, who led 4-0 before Mike Richards and Dustin Brown scored power-play goals for the Kings. Phoenix's Rob Klinkhammer sealed it with his second career NHL goal in two games since he was recalled from Portland of the American Hockey League four days earlier. Mike Smith, in his 250th NHL game, had 31 saves for Phoenix. Jonathan Quick had 24 for the Kings, who played for the second night in a row. The Coyotes won their second in a row and for the fourth time in six games. It was the third career two-goal game for Boedker. Phoenix earned its first regulation win in six regular-season meetings with Los Angeles. The Kings beat the Coyotes in five games in last season's Western Conference finals. The Coyotes dominated the first period, killing two penalties and scoring twice. Boedker started it, taking a pass from Torres and slipping a wrist shot just inside the left post 9:25 into the game. After the second penalty kill, Doan scored his team-leading ninth goal of the season and his third in three games. Derek Morris' shot deflected off the Coyotes captain's skate and into the net, making it 2-0 with 3:13 left in the period. Phoenix added two more in the second, first on Boedker's one-timer in front of the net, with an assist from Keith Yandle. Torres then came barreling in from the side to knock the puck in off Quick's deflection of Doan's shot, giving the Coyotes a 4-0 lead with 7:27 to go in the period. The Kings broke through on their third power play of the night. Richards scored from the right circle, with the puck finding the net just inside the right post. That made it 4-1 with 2:23 left in the second. Brown's ninth goal of the season, just Derek Morris went to the penalty box for slashing, cut it to 4-2 with 15:27 to play in the third. But Klinkhammer took the puck down the right side and knocked it past Quick at 10:55. Phoenix will the Kings twice next week in Los Angeles, on Tuesday and Wednesday. The games come at the end of a four-game trip that starts Thursday in St. Louis. The Kings, who lost for the fourth time in 15 games, will play at San Jose on Thursday. NOTES: Quick has allowed at least four goals in three of his last six starts. ... Phoenix recalled D Chris Summers from Portland of the AHL. ... The Kings had earned points in five straight games against the Coyotes (3-0-2). ... Phoenix C Matthew Lombardi (lower body injury) was scratched. ... All three Kings penalties were on Jake Muzzin, two for hooking and one for interference.
