LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Mike Richards and Anze Kopitar scored power-play goals, and Jonathan Quick earned his first shutout of the season in the Los Angeles Kings' 2-0 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night.

Richards had a goal and an assist for the Kings, who returned from a four-day schedule break with their ninth victory in 13 games. Quick made 19 saves, including a handful of exceptional stops in his 26th career shutout.

Jhonas Enroth stopped 26 shots for the NHL-worst Sabres (3-14-1), who couldn't follow up their stunning win at San Jose with another surprise on their three-game California road trip. Buffalo hasn't won consecutive games all season.

Defenceman Christian Ehrhoff left the Buffalo bench early in the third period with a lower-body injury, according to the club.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
