LOS ANGELES (AP) - Brent Sopel scored the go-ahead goal on a power play with six seconds left in the second period and Alexander Frolov added a power-play goal with 17 seconds remaining in the game to lead the Los Angeles Kings to a 4-2 victory over the New York Islanders on Tuesday night.

Michael Cammalleri and Tom Kostopoulos scored first-period goals and Dan Cloutier made 23 saves for the Kings.

Richard Park and Alexei Yashin scored for the Islanders, who are off to a franchise-worst 0-3 start.

The Kings snapped a 2-2 tie with 3 seconds left on Yashin's hooking penalty. Oleg Tverdovsky threw the puck into the slot from the right circle and Sopel one-timed it over goalie Rick DiPietro's glove with heavy traffic in front of the crease.

The goal was Sopel's second in three games, matching his entire total in 68 games last season with the Islanders and Kings. Los Angeles acquired him in a trade with New York on March 8, and he played in 11 games for the Kings before undergoing surgery on his right knee in May.
