Jonathan Quick gets shutout as LA Kings beat Buffalo 2-0 with PP goals from Richards, Kopitar

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.

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
