Robitaille finished with a three-goal hat trick, but it was his breakaway goal in the third period that vaulted him into the Kings' No. 1 top spot.
Robitaille now has 552 goals as a King, two more than longtime great Marcel Dionne, whose last season with the Kings in 1986-87 was also Robitaille's first with the club.
Mattias Norstrom had a goal and four assists, while Jeff Giuliano scored twice for the Kings, who halted a two-game skid. Tom Kostopoulos and Dustin Brown also scored, while Jason LaBarbera posted 33 saves in the victory.
