RALEIGH, N.C. — The Kings’ winless stretch came to an end thanks to an explosive third period.

Trevor Moore scored two goals and the Kings snapped an eight-game winless streak by beating the Carolina Hurricanes, 5-2, on Monday.

Phillip Danault, Alex Laferriere and Pierre-Luc Dubois also scored in a four-goal third period for the Kings, who had gone 0-4-4 since beating San Jose on Dec. 27.

David Rittich made 30 saves for the Kings in the fifth stop of their six-game trip. Vladislav Gavrikov, Mikey Anderson, Matt Roy and Danault each had two assists.

Jordan Martinook and Jack Drury scored for Carolina, which had secured at least a point in each of its previous eight games. Antti Raanta stopped 20 shots before Yaniv Perets was inserted with 14:40 left in the game for his NHL debut. Perets was called upon for just one save.

The score was tied at 1-all before the Kings unloaded early in the third.

Danault’s ninth goal of the season gave the Kings a 2-1 lead 61 seconds into the period. Laferriere’s goal came at 2:21.

Then came Dubois’ second goal in as many games and ninth of the season at 5:20.

Moore opened the scoring at 6:24 of the first period and his team-leading 20th came with 1:16 to play into an empty net.
