|LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Jeff Carter scored the tiebreaking goal with 13:51 to play, and the Los Angeles Kings roared back from a three-goal deficit for their seventh win in eight games, 6-4 over the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night.

Mike Richards and Muzzin scored 59 seconds apart to tie it for the Kings, who trailed 4-1 midway through the second period.
Alex Pietrangelo, David Perron and Chris Stewart each had a goal and an assist for the Blues, who have lost five of seven.
