Carter's 13th goal in 13 games, Voynov's 3 assists help Kings beat Flames 6-2

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Jeff Carter opened the scoring with his 13th goal in 13 games, Justin Williams had a goal and two assists, and the Los Angeles Kings beat Calgary 6-2 on Saturday night in their first of back-to-back home games against the Flames.

Anze Kopitar, Colin Fraser, Trevor Lewis and rookie defenceman Jake Muzzin also had goals, defenceman Slava Voynov tied a career high with his second three-assist game in a week, and Jonathan Quick made 17 saves to help lift the defending Stanley Cup champions into a tie with St. Louis and Detroit for fourth place in the Western Conference.

Michael Cammalleri and Alex Tanguay scored for Calgary. Miikka Kiprusoff, making his third straight start after missing 13 games because of a sprained knee, gave up six goals on 22 shots and was replaced by Joey MacDonald after Fraser's goal with 11:38 remaining.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
