COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Dustin Brown scored on a redirect midway through the third period and Jonathan Quick had 24 saves to lead Los Angeles to a 2-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night, ending the Kings' five-game skid and giving interim coach John Stevens his first victory. Brown added an assist and Davis Drewiske also scored for the Kings, who fired Terry Murray on Monday. There is wide-spread speculation that general manager Dean Lombardi is close to hiring former San Jose coach and Calgary GM Darryl Sutter as the permanent coach. After a 5-1-1 start to the season, the Kings have gone 9-12-3. Jeff Carter scored for Columbus and also had two other scoring chances in the final minutes.
