Hornqvist gets 2 goals, Penguins beat slumping LA Kings 3-1

LOS ANGELES (AP) Until Pittsburgh goalie Casey DeSmith got the start at Staples Center on Thursday night, his entire NHL experience consisted of two relief appearances in Penguins losses.

DeSmith seized the chance to grab his first career victory - with plenty of help from the Penguins' scoring stars.

Patric Hornqvist scored two goals and Evgeni Malkin got the tiebreaking goal early in the third period of Pittsburgh's fifth win in six games, 3-1 over the slumping Los Angeles Kings.
