Barrie tied it, 1-1, at 8:26 of the opening period. He took the puck in the slot and put a wrist shot past goaltender Mike Vernon for his first goal since November 24, a span of 16 games.
Barrie's fourth of the season three minutes into the second put the Kings ahead for good. Luc Robitaille's rebound of Zigmund Palffy's slap shot was stopped by Vernon, but Barrie poked in the rebound.
Modry scored on the power play with 4:39 left in the second.
Donald Audette lifted a shot in close that hit the crossbar but Modry slapped in the rebound for his second of the season.
