LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Jeff Carter scored his second power-play goal on a deflection of Mike Richards' shot 28 seconds into overtime, and the Los Angeles Kings blew a three-goal lead before beating the Ottawa Senators 4-3 on Wednesday night.

Dustin Brown scored twice during the Kings' three-goal first period, and Carter had three points in Los Angeles' sixth straight home victory over Ottawa in the past decade.

Milan Michalek scored the tying goal with 4:27 left in regulation for the Senators. Jean-Gabriel Pageau netted his third career goal in the second period, and Bobby Ryan scored his first goal with Ottawa early in the third.

Jonathan Quick made 22 saves for the Kings. Richards and Anze Kopitar had two assists apiece.
