Kings score four straight, win 4-2
LOS ANGELES -- Michael Cammalleri and Lubomir Visnovsky each had a goal and an assist, and Rob Blake also scored to lead the Los Angeles Kings to a 4-2 victory Saturday night that snapped their 12-game losing streak to the Red Wings.

Mathieu Garon made 32 saves, and Sean Avery added an empty-net goal for the Kings, who beat Detroit for the first time since Oct. 12, 2002, at Los Angeles. The Kings, coming off a 3-0 win against Columbus on Wednesday, have posted consecutive regulation victories for the first time since beating St. Louis and the New York Islanders in October.

Kris Draper and Mikael Samuelsson scored for the Wings, who reached the midway mark in their schedule with a 25-11-5 record and are four points behind Central Division-leading Nashville.

Pavel Datsyuk missed his third straight game because of a groin injury. Defenseman Chris Chelios missed his fifth straight game and third since two employees were stabbed to death at his Detroit sports bar. Chelios is expected to rejoin the team on Monday in Denver.

Referee Kelly Sutherland gave the Avery a diving penalty with 7:20 to play, after Detroit's Tomas Holmstrom appeared to trip him in the neutral zone. The ensuing power play resulted in an injury to Samuelsson, who was struck on the right knee by teammate Nicklas Lidstrom's slap shot and had to be helped off the ice.
