Mike Richards tied it with 2:54 left in regulation, and Kyle Clifford also scored for Los Angeles (16-6-3).

Ben Scrivens made 37 saves for the Kings, who have earned at least a point in 10 straight games (7-0-3).

Henrik Sedin and Chris Tanev scored for Vancouver (12-9-5), which went 1-2-3 on a season-high, six-game homestand.

Luongo made 19 stops for the Canucks, who are 1-4-3 against Pacific Division rivals this season.

Vancouver’s 28th-ranked power play was 0-for-7 before Sedin beat Scrivens with a quick shot on the Canucks’ eighth advantage, snapping a 1-1 tie at 6:59.
