LOS ANGELES (AP) Willie Mitchell scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period, and the Los Angeles Kings broke their offensive slump to beat the Phoenix Coyotes 4-3 Monday night for their second victory under new coach Darryl Sutter.

Rob Scuderi, Brad Richardson and captain Dustin Brown also scored for the Kings, who scored at least three goals for the first time in 15 games since Nov. 22, ending the longest stretch of such low-scoring hockey in franchise history.

Mitchell and Brown both scored in the third period on stoppable shots against Phoenix’s Jason LaBarbera, who made 25 saves before getting pulled from his third straight start in place of injured Mike Smith.

Raffi Torres scored two goals on exceptional plays by the Coyotes, and Daymond Langkow added a third-period goal in Phoenix’s sixth loss in nine games.
