ST. LOUIS (AP) — Mike Richards had a goal and an assist, and Willie Mitchell scored the winner on his first goal of the season to help the Los Angeles Kings slip past the St. Louis Blues 3-2 Tuesday night.
The Kings got a team-leading 10th goal from Anze Kopitar, and Jonathan Bernier stopped 23 shots in only his fourth start of the season as the Kings won in St. Louis for only the third time in 11 tries.
Alex Steen and Vladimir Sobotka scored for the Blues, who only lost for the second time in regulation in 10 home games. Jaroslav Halak stopped 25 shots.
