LOS ANGELES - Scott Parse and Jarret Stoll scored early goals, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the road-weary Calgary Flames 2-1 Monday night for their fifth victory in seven games.
Jonathan Quick made 26 saves, carrying the Kings with a series of outstanding stops during the scoreless final 35 minutes. Los Angeles again struggled offensively, yet still handed the NHL's best road team just its third regulation defeat away from Calgary.
Curtis Glencross scored and Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 15 shots for the Flames, who finished a successful six-game road trip with their second visit in 16 days to the Staples Center. Calgary lost its Northwest Division lead to Colorado, which beat St. Louis earlier, but the Flames have three games in hand on the Avalanche.
