The Kings were then whistled for three penalties in 75 seconds. The first two resulting in the tying goal by Cammalleri at 7:24 during a 5-on-3 advantage.

Wideman faked a shot from the high slot and fed a pass to the former Kings center, who had plenty of room at the right side of the net with Quick out of position to score his ninth goal.

Kings center Jarret Stoll, who won 24 of 29 faceoffs in the previous two games, was given a delay-of-game penalty for a faceoff violation right after Cammalleri's goal when he tied up the Flames' goal leader with his stick on the ensuing draw. That gave Calgary a two-man advantage for another 1:38.

The Kings survived that threat, and Muzzin regained the lead for them at 10:42 with a long wrist shot through traffic that beat Kiprusoff through a screen. Lewis made it 3-1 at 18:23 with a wrist shot over Kiprusoff's glove before Tanguay got the Flames within a goal again 17 seconds before the first intermission.

"We were in a bad position, but we bounced back nicely from the one that was called off and got the goal back," Iginla said. "Being able to make it 3-2 at the end of the first gave us a shot. But in the second period we got outplayed and they took the game over. We didn't put enough pressure on them."

Williams, restored the Kings' two-goal margin at 9:44 of the second period on a deflection of Voynov's long slap shot through a screen. Voynov also had three assists Monday in a 5-1 win against Nashville.

"Slava's been playing some great hockey, not only offensively but in the defensive zone, as well," Williams said. "He's been working hard and he's having fun out there."

NOTES: Former Los Angeles goalie Kelly Hrudey was honored in a pregame ceremony as the Kings continued their "Legends Night Series."

Cammalleri has nine goals in 13 games since sitting out three because of a lower body injury. The 10-year veteran, who began his NHL career with the Kings, has six goals and three assists in 12 games against his former team. Three goals have been game-winners. ... Tanguay has scored seven goals this season despite taking just 27 shots. ... All four meetings last season between the teams were won by the visiting club. They will meet again on Monday. ... Matt Stajan earned his 300th NHL point with an assist on Tanguay's goal.
