Kings Vs. Flames Final Score: Darryl Sutter Wins Return To Calgary 4-1

Los Angeles Kings head coach Darryl Sutter, who spent eight years in Calgary as both coach and general manager, had a successful return Saturday night as the Kings extinguished the Calgary Flames 4-1 at Scotiabank Saddledome. The Kings are 7-1-4 under Sutter.

Jonathan Quick saved 29 of 30 shots in the win, his 19th of the season. Quick is 7-1-3 in his last 11 starts, with a .949 save percentage during that span.

The Kings were outshot 11-6 in the first period, but it didn't lead to any damage as the game was scoreless after 20 minutes. The Kings lit the lamp three times in the second period, with goals by Mike Richards and Anze Kopitar, their 14th each, and Matt Greene, his third goal of the season. Richards also added an assist in the period.

Dustin Brown added an empty-net goal in the final minute to provide the final margin. The Kings continue their road trip Sunday night with a battle against the Edmonton Oilers, who have lost five straight, eight of nine, and 12 of their last 14 contests.
