Kings 3, Flames 1

Kings beat Flames for second time in three days

LOS ANGELES — Dustin Brown scored two goals, Jonathan Quick made 23 saves, and the surging Los Angeles Kings beat Calgary, 3-1, Monday night for their second win over the Flames in three days.

Brown and Jarret Stoll scored first-period goals before Brown added an empty-netter for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who moved up to third place in the Western Conference with their 11th win in 14 games.

Despite a rough third period dominated by Calgary, the champs finished their five-game homestand with four victories. Los Angeles trails only Chicago and Anaheim in the West race.

Mikael Backlund ruined Quick’s shutout bid with 5:22 to play for last-place Calgary, which has lost six straight on the road.
