EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Kings turned a disheartening collapse into a rousing victory.

Joe Corvo tied it with 70 seconds left and fellow defenseman Jason Holland scored with 5.5 seconds to play as the Kings rallied for a stunning 4-3 victory over the Edmonton Oilers.

Los Angeles squandered a two-goal lead, fell behind in the third period and appeared headed to its first loss in five games.

But the Kings pulled goaltender Roman Cechmanek for an extra attacker and tied it when Corvo ripped a shot from above the left faceoff circle that deflected past Tommy Salo.

Instead of settling for overtime, Los Angeles pressed in the final seconds and pulled out its third straight road win. Jozef Stumpel threw the puck at the net from the right corner and Salo knocked it away with his blocker before he was hit by teammate Fernando Pisani.

With the goaltender pinned, Holland moved down the slot and slid in a wrist shot for his third goal of the season and first in 12 games.

It was a devastating defeat for Edmonton, which got goals from Georges Laraque and Pisani in a 97-second span early in the third period but lost for the fourth time in five games.
