VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Dustin Brown scored 53 seconds into overtime, giving the Los Angeles Kings a 2-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night.

Alex Iafallo scored for the Kings in regulation, assisted by Brown. Cal Petersen made 32 saves, and Anze Kopitar had two assists.

Markus Granlund tied the game for the Canucks with 3:43 to go in the third period. Jacob Markstrom stopped 23 shots.

Kings coach Willie Desjardins returned to Rogers Arena for the first time since the Canucks fired him at the end of the 2016-17 season. Desjardins took over in Los Angeles when John Stevens was dismissed this month.

Desjardins received a mix of cheers and jeers from the crowd when his face was shown on the big video screen before the game.

Iafallo was first to find the back of the net 10:45 into the second. The left wing collected a pass from Brown high in the faceoff circle and fired a slap shot past Markstrom for his fifth goal of the season.

Granlund tied it when he deflected the puck past Petersen for his fifth of the season.

Jonathan Quick returned to the Kings as Petersen's backup. The 32-year-old goalie has struggled with a lower-body injury this season and missed the previous 12 games.

Meanwhile, the Canucks got an offensive force back in Brock Boeser. The 21-year-old right wing had been out since early November, missing 11 games with a lower-body injury.

Boeser rang a backhand off the post in the second period, but couldn't add to the 11 points he's amassed this season.

NOTES: One hockey fan might have been the biggest winner of the night. The Canucks' 50/50 jackpot hit a record-breaking $1,413,630, giving the winner a prize of more than $700,000.
