The Los Angeles Kings opened their six-game road trip Friday night, but it appears the offense didn't make the trip. The Kings managed only 22 shots against St. Louis Blues goaltender Jaroslav Halak, who saved them all in a 1-0 St. Louis win at Scottrade Center.
Jamie Langenbrunner scored his fourth goal of the season at 8:38 of the second period for the lone goal of the game. The Blues are 8-0-2 in their last 10 home games.
All-Star goaltender Jonathan Quick saved 32 of 33 shots for the Kings but suffered the loss. The Kings were outshot 25-14 in the first two periods and though they evened the shots on goal at 8-8 in the final period the Kings were unable to get a shot past Halak.
The Kings have scored an NHL-low 110 goals in 52 games this season, an average of just 2.12 per contest. The Kings have been shutout six times this season.
