The Los Angeles Kings ended their scoring drought in style as they came from behind three times to beat the NHL-leading Chicago Blackhawks 5-4.

The Kings had been goalless in their last two games but Anze Kopitar, Jarret Stoll, Dwight King, Tyler Toffoli and Dustin Brown all netted to upset the Blackhawks.

Michael Frolik scored two for Chicago but it wasn't enough to stop them slipping to a second successive defeat.

Zach Parise netted twice to help the Minnesota Wild to their sixth straight win with a 7-4 defeat of the Dallas Stars.

Parise also added an assist, with Mikko Koivu and Matt Cullen contributing a goal and an assist apiece.

The Nashville Predators registered their third straight win thanks to goals from Sergei Kostitsyn, Kevin Klein and Chris Mueller which saw them to a 3-2 defeat of the Edmonton Oilers.

The Detroit Red Wings beat the Phoenix Coyotes by the same scoreline, while Martin Havlat scored his first goal in 16 games to help the San Jose Sharks see off the Anaheim Ducks 5-3.

The Boston Bruins and the Ottawa Senators both claimed 3-2 shootout wins, over the Toronto Maple Leafs and the New Jersey Devils respectively.
