Slava Voynov scored his first two NHL goals, including the go-ahead tally with 6:52 remaining, and the Los Angeles Kings handed the Dallas Stars their first home loss of the season with a 5-3 victory on Thursday night.
With the game tied at 3, Voynov took a shot from the right point that got past screened goaltender Kari Lehtonen.
Jonathan Quick's shutout streak ended at 202 minutes, 11 seconds for Los Angeles.
Scott Parse and Justin Williams also scored for the Kings, who improved to 3-0-1 on the road this season.
Dustin Brown had an empty-netter with 26.3 seconds left and added two assists for the Kings.
Michael Ryder and Eric Nystrom notched third-period goals as Dallas came back from a 3-1 deficit.

Los Angeles Kings star defenseman Drew Doughty is expected to return to the lineup for Saturday's game against Phoenix.
Doughty has missed five games with a shoulder injury suffered in a game against Philadelphia two weeks ago.
The 21-year-old Doughty, who signed an eight-year, $56 million contract prior to the season, has one assist in four games.
The second overall pick...

A game that originally looked like a classic goalie duel turned, instead, into a goalfest that was won by the LA Kings, 5-3.
Dallas (7-3-0, 14 pts) was able to finally halt Jonathan Quick's shutout streak, but found themselves with goalie troubles of their own as Kari Lehtonen let four shots slip by him before the Kings put in an...
They brought up Jon Bernier too soon.
They brought up Oscar Moller too soon.
Have the Kings done the same with Kyle Clifford?
Something interesting caught my attention in Hammond's blog in regards to the imminent departure of Voynov back to Manchester. Terry Murray said the following:

Popular Detroit Red Wings defender and twitter personality Mike Commodore was very confused after a high volume of negativity from Los Angeles Kings fans on Twitter yesterday.
The off-season acquisition of the Red Wings says he accidentally clicked “retweet” on an original tweet that questioned the integrity of L.A. as a hockey market.
Here’s the screen grab:
The Stars have now come up empty in two meetings with the Los Angeles Kings, despite a commendable overall effort in both games.
Last night, the Stars played a fine first period and scored first but ran into problems in the middle stanza, falling behind, 3-1. Dallas showed their resiliency by battling all the way back to tie the game, before suffering a fatal setback on rookie...

It's a classic case of the immovable object against the unstoppable force. On one side is a goalie with a spotless win record. On the other side is a goalie who hasn't allowed a goal in three games. Something has to give.

When Tyler Dellow digs, interesting things about the inner workings of the NHL come to light.
He appears to have scored another hit, the focus this time on the League's involvement with the Dallas Stars' ownership.
In March 2009, the Hicks Sports Group defaulted on $525 million in loans. The Dallas Stars were up for sale, and were being financed by a group of lenders.
The Los Angeles Kings have been stingy in their own end thanks to Jonathan Quick. The return of their best defenseman should help them continue that prowess.
All-Star Drew Doughty is expected to be back in action Saturday night for the Kings when they visit the Phoenix Coyotes.
Doughty, who signed an eight-year, $56 million contract last month, was placed on injured reserve Oct...
