CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Trevor Lewis scored the go-ahead goal and the Los Angeles Kings swept back-to-back games in Alberta with a 3-1 victory over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday.

Lewis had gone 13 games without a point before picking up two assists Tuesday night in the Kings' 3-1 win over Edmonton.

His game-winning goal on Wednesday came at 15:20 of the first period on a play in which the 26-year-old showed great poise.

Lewis collected a rebound at the side of the net, paused briefly, then zipped a shot into the top corner over Flames goaltender Joey MacDonald's shoulder for his first goal in 31 games going back to last season.

That would be all the offense Jonathan Bernier needed. With Jonathan Quick getting the night off after beating the Oilers, the Kings backup goalie made 26 saves.

Dustin Brown and Jeff Carter also scored for Los Angeles. The defending Stanley Cup champions wrap up a grueling stretch in which they played eight of nine games on the road.

T.J. Brodie scored for Calgary.
