Dustin Brown scores 2 goals, leading surging Los Angeles Kings past Calgary again 3-1

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Captain Dustin Brown scored two goals, Jonathan Quick made 23 saves and the surging Los Angeles Kings beat Calgary 3-1 on Monday night for their second win over the Flames in three days.

Brown and Jarret Stoll scored first-period goals before Brown added an empty-netter for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who moved up to third place in the Western Conference with their 11th win in 14 games.

Despite a rough third period dominated by Calgary, the champs finished their five-game homestand with four victories. With steadily improving play after a rough start to the season, Los Angeles trails only Chicago and Anaheim in the West race.

Mikael Backlund ruined Quick's shutout bid with 5:22 to play for last-place Calgary, which has lost six straight on the road.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
