RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Sebastian Aho scored on a power play with 53.8 seconds left in overtime and the Carolina Hurricanes claimed another comeback win, beating the Los Angeles Kings 5-4 on Tuesday night.
Brent Burns, Paul Stastny, Jordan Staal and Teuvo Teravainen also scored for the Hurricanes, who trailed 4-1 entering the third period. Andrei Svechnikov had two assists and Frederik Andersen stopped 17 shots.
Aho has scored in five straight games as the Hurricanes extended their winning streak to six games and their points streak to nine games.

The Kings wrapped up play prior to the All-Star break by going 3-2-1 on a season-high six-game trip.
Carolina also rallied from a two-goal deficit in the last two minutes of regulation in Friday night's overtime win over San Jose.
Teravainen's fifth goal of the season with 7:29 to play in regulation forced overtime.
Aho has a team-leading 22 goals, including seven in a five-game span.
