Jonathan Quick made 41 saves, and the Los Angeles Kings got goals from Dustin Brown and defenseman Jack Johnson to beat the Florida Panthers 2-1 on Thursday night.
Sean Bergenheim scored for Florida, and Jose Theodore stopped 23 shots. The Panthers are now 0-7 against the Kings since Nov. 27, 2002, when they beat them 5-2 in Los Angeles.
Kris Versteeg, who leads Florida with 12 goals and 26 points in his first season with the club, was scratched for the first time because of a broken nose after getting elbowed by Carolina's Derek Joslin during Tuesday's 3-1 win.
Johnson gave the Kings a 1-0 lead 1:35 into the game with a shot from the left boards that deflected off Panthers defenseman Mike Weaver and past Theodore's glove.
The Panthers outshot Los Angeles 10-1 during the first 12:20 of the second period, but came up empty on a 5-on-3 power play they had for 35 seconds. Johnson, Rob Scuderi and Mike Richards kept Florida at bay, blocking several shots in front of Quick.
