PHILADELPHIA - Martin Biron made 34 saves for his 25th career shutout, and Jeff Carter scored his 36th goal of the season in the Philadelphia Flyers' 2-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday night.
With their seventh win in nine games, the Flyers moved to within four points of New Jersey for third place in the Eastern Conference.
Simon Gagne added his 23rd goal, an empty-netter with a second left.
Biron was kept busy, though not seriously threatened, in his second shutout of the season.
The Kings took only nine shots in the third period, failed to convert on five power plays and suffered another hit in their chase for the eighth seed in the West.
