LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Drew Doughty scored a power-play goal with 1 second remaining in the game, lifting the Los Angeles Kings to a 3-2 victory over the last-place Columbus Blue Jackets Wednesday night after an eight-day break. The Kings also got goals from Dustin Penner and Justin Williams to win their second straight. Jonathan Quick, the lone King to play in last weekend's All-Star game, picked up where he left off before the break, making 20 saves for his 22nd victory. The Kings have won eight of their last 10 games against the Blue Jackets, who always seem to give them fits despite being the worst team in the NHL. Columbus' Colton Gillies tied the game 2-2 with his first goal of the season on a rebound in front of the net at 4:52 of the third period. Derek Dorsett had the team's other goal early in the second. With Samuel Pahlsson off for holding, the Kings went on the power play in the waning minutes. They appeared headed to overtime until Doughty controlled the loose puck and scored in front of the net, a rare third-period goal for the Kings, who have 33 this season. Penner's goal was just his second in 22 games and fourth of the season, and it put the Kings back in front at 14:32 after the Blue Jackets failed to clear the puck out of their zone. Williams gave Los Angeles its first lead on a power-play goal at 8:40 of the first. Doughty set up at the left point and passed to Williams, who scored between the legs of Columbus goalie Curtis Sanford. Sanford stopped 30 shots for the injury-riddled Blue Jackets, who were coming off a 6-0 loss at San Jose on Tuesday and have dropped six in a row. NOTES: The Blue Jackets have allowed 66 third-period goals. ... Having played a league-high 30 home games, the Kings head out for their annual six-game Grammy road trip starting Friday at St. Louis. ... Quick has allowed 11 goals in his last six starts. ... Williams has points in nine straight games. ... The teams split their first two meetings, with each winning on the road.
