Kings 2, Flames 1

Scott Parse and Jarret Stoll scored early goals, and the Los

Angeles Kings beat the road-weary Calgary Flames 2-1 Monday night

for their fifth victory in seven games.

Jonathan Quick made 26 saves, carrying the Kings with a series

of outstanding stops during the scoreless final 35 minutes. Los

Angeles again struggled offensively, yet still handed the NHL’s

best road team just its third regulation defeat away from

Calgary.

Curtis Glencross scored and Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 15 shots

for the Flames, who finished a successful six-game road trip with

their second visit in 16 days to the Staples Center. Calgary lost

its Northwest Division lead to Colorado, which beat St. Louis

earlier, but the Flames have three games in hand on the

Avalanche.
