Kings win 8th straight, 3-2 in OT over Hurricanes

LOS ANGELES (AP) There's more than one way to win a hockey game, and the Los Angeles Kings keep proving that.

Tanner Pearson scored 4:40 into overtime and Los Angeles edged the Carolina Hurricanes 3-2 on Saturday night for its eighth consecutive victory.

It's the longest winning streak in the NHL this season, but it's not as though the Kings have overpowered teams every night. This was the second consecutive game in which they lost a lead in the third period only to win in OT.
