CHICAGO (AP) Mike Richards scored the lone goal in a six-round shutout to give the Los Angeles Kings a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night.

Richards beat Ray Emery with a quick wrist shot after Emery stopped the Kings' first five shooters.

Los Angeles goalie Jonathan Quick stopped all six Chicago shooters after making 35 saves - including Viktor Stalberg's third-period penalty shot - through overtime.

Slava Voynov and Jeff Carter scored in regulation for Los Angeles. The Kings ended a two-game losing streak and rebounded from a 4-3 loss in Detroit on Friday night when they gave up two goals in the final 4:02.

Marcus Kruger and Patrick Kane scored for Chicago. Kane tied it at 2 at 7:36 of the third with his fifth goal in seven games.
