Richards has goal and assist, Quick makes 18 stops in Kings' 4-2 win over Blue Jackets

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Mike Richards provided late insurance with his first goal of the season and Jonathan Quick stopped 18 shots to lead the Los Angeles Kings over the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-2 on Tuesday night.

Anze Kopitar, Jeff Carter and Slava Voynov also scored while Justin Williams had three assists for the reigning Stanley Cup champions, who began the night 14th in the Western Conference with six points — two more than last-place Calgary and one fewer than Columbus.

Richards also had an assist and Quick made several big stops in the first and third periods. Columbus managed just two shots on goal in the middle period.

Derick Brassard and Dereck MacKenzie had the Blue Jackets' goals.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
