LOS ANGELES – Alexander Frolov recorded his third straight two-goal game and Craig Conroy netted the go-ahead score with 11 minutes left, leading the Los Angeles Kings to a 5-3 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday.

The Kings, who gave up three goals in a 3:10 minute span late in the third period of a 4-3 loss to Philadelphia on Thursday, surrendered three goals on seven shots by the Coyotes to blow a 3-0 lead.

Georges Laraque and Yanic Perreault scored 42 seconds apart, narrowing the gap to 3-2 with 18:37 left in the second period, and Oleg Saprykin’s fluke goal tied it with 131/2 minutes remaining. Laraque passed the puck into the slot, where it took a weird bounce toward the net off Saprykin’s stick and fluttered over goalie Dan Cloutier’s left shoulder and caromed in off the post.

But this time, the Kings didn’t fold. Conroy regained the lead with a slap shot from the top of the left circle that beat relief goalie Curtis Joseph. It was only the second goal for Conroy, who had 22 last season.
