LOS ANGELES (AP) — Anze Kopitar ended a career-worst, 17-game goal drought less than five minutes after defenseman Matt Greene’s go-ahead goal in the second period, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-1 Saturday night in the NHL’s final game of 2011.

Coming off a 1-0 overtime loss at Winnipeg on Thursday with backup goalie Jonathan Bernier in net, the Kings began a six-game homestand with their fourth victory in six games since Darryl Sutter took over as coach.

Justin Williams had a goal and an assist, Brad Richardson also scored and Jonathan Quick made 27 saves. Rookie Andrei Loktionov had two assists.

Kevin Bieksa scored Vancouver’s goal and Roberto Luongo stopped 29 shots.
