Jeff Carter, Dwight King and Robyn Regehr had goals for the Kings, who have lost three in a row. Mike Richards had two assists.

The Blue Jackets have been surging since getting Horton, who missed the first 40 games after shoulder surgery, and Bobrovsky, who sat out most of December with a strained groin, back on the ice. They’re 8-1-0 with Horton, a big free-agent signing last summer from Boston, in the lineup.

Down 2-1 after the first, the Kings tied it before the Blue Jackets scored twice in 89 seconds late in the second to take command.

Carter received a nice pass on a 3 on 1 break from Richards and recorded his 20th goal at 8:39.
