LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Loui Eriksson scored twice and then netted the deciding goal in a shootout to help the Dallas Stars rally for a 5-4 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night. Eriksson tied the game 4-all on a power-play goal at 14:35 of the third period. He tried to center the puck in front of the net, and the Kings' Willie Mitchell inadvertently knocked it in when he tried to clear it. Eriksson, the Stars' second shooter in the tiebreaker, pushed the puck over the goal line as goalie Jonathan Quick fell over. Trevor Lewis then failed to connect for the Kings. Kari Lehtonen made 37 saves to earn his 150th NHL victory. Quick, named to his first All-Star team earlier Thursday, stopped 34 shots for the Kings. Jack Johnson and Dustin Brown scored consecutive power-play goals to give the Kings a 4-3 lead in the third period. Johnson assisted on two second-period goals for his second straight multi-point game and third of the season. Anze Kopitar had a goal and two assists before leaving with 7:48 remaining in the third after getting tossed into the boards by Brenden Morrow. Kopitar lay face down in a corner before slowly getting up and leaving under his own power. The Kings said he had an upper body injury. He was circling behind the net when he put his left shoulder into Morrow, who raised his right arm and sent Kopitar flying. As a result, the Kings' Mike Richards received penalties for instigating a fight, unsportsmanlike conduct, fighting and a 10-minute misconduct, while Morrow was sent off for fighting. Dallas then went on a 4-minute power play that led to Eriksson's tying goal. Dallas took a 2-0 lead on goals by Eriksson and Eric Nystrom 51 seconds apart in the first. Eriksson scored on a 3-on-2, and Nystrom put in his own rebound. The Kings sandwiched goals by Kopitar and Lewis, his first of the season, around one by the Stars' Alex Goligoski, leaving Los Angeles trailing 3-2 in the second. NOTES: The Stars improved to 3-1 in shootouts this season; the Kings fell to 3-5. ... Johnson has seven points in six games. ... Lewis' goal was his first since March 26, 2011. ... The Stars earned their team-record 102nd win against the Kings, surpassing the 101 they have against Detroit.
