LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Mike Richards scored the tiebreaking goal, Jonathan Quick made 19 saves and the Los Angeles Kings crept closer to the Anaheim Ducks atop the Pacific Division standings Saturday night with a 2-1 victory in the final Freeway Faceoff of the regular season.

Drew Doughty had a goal and an assist as the defending Stanley Cup champions solidified their hold on a top-four seed in the Western Conference by holding off the powerful Ducks, who have lost two straight.

Los Angeles (24-14-4) trails division-leading Anaheim (27-10-5) by seven points with six games to play.

Ryan Getzlaf scored a short-handed goal and Viktor Fasth stopped 16 shots for the Ducks, who have lost in their past five trips to Staples Center.
