LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Jonathan Quick posted his fourth shutout of the season, Justin Williams scored a power-play goal early, and the surging Los Angeles Kings beat the Detroit Red Wings 1-0 Tuesday night for their eighth straight victory.
The defending Stanley Cup champions handed the Red Wings their third shutout loss of the season. Quick, who has allowed just five goals in the last five games, increased his club-record shutout total to 35 with 20 saves. He was 1-7-1 with a 3.44 goals-against average in his previous nine games against Detroit.
The shutout was the 200th for the franchise during the regular season. Quick, the Kings' all-time leader in regular-season victories with 201, is one away from tying the longest winning streak of his eight-year career.
Jonas Gustavsson stopped 26 shots in his fourth start of the season and first since losing 4-3 in overtime at the New York Rangers on Nov. 5.
