The Kings snapped a 13-game winless streak (0-12-1) against the Red Wings that dated back to October 2002.

Kris Draper and Mikael Samuelsson scored and Chris Osgood made 30 saves on 33 shots for the Red Wings, who lost their second straight game following a four-game winning streak.

The Kings trailed, 2-0, in the second period but scored two goals -- one by Visnovsky and the second by Blake -- to forge a 2-2 tie heading into the second intermission.

Cammalleri put the Kings ahead on a power-play goal with 1:55 left in regulation.
