CHICAGO (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Kings, who have made overtime a habit, try to end a 14-game winless skid on Sunday when they visit the Chicago Blackhawks.

Los Angeles is 0-3-9-2 in its last 14 games since a 4-2 triumph over Edmonton on December 16. The Kings have played four straight overtime games and 11 of their last 14 have required an extra session.

Josef Stumpel and Alexander Frolov each scored as Los Angeles continued its four-game road trip with Friday's 3-2 overtime loss at Columbus. The Kings have scored two games or fewer in five straight games.

The Kings are three games shy of the longest winless stretch in franchise history - set in the 1969-70 season.

Chicago dropped its third straight with Wednesday's 4-2 loss to Detroit. Kyle Calder and Tyler Arnason each scored for the Blackhawks, who have dropped five of six.

The Blackhawks have yielded 28 goals in their last six games.

Los Angeles is 2-1 against Chicago, posting a 4-2 victory at the lone matchup at the United Center on October 12. Trent Klatt and defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky each have two goals against the Blackhawks this season.
