Quick Dazzles As Kings Blank Sharks

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jonathan Quick earned his NHL-leading fourth shutout in his 200th regular-season game, Ethan Moreau ended a 58-game goal drought with his first since October 2009, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the San Jose Sharks 2-0 on Monday night.

Quick made 33 saves, coming up big numerous times during two San Jose power plays in the final 4½ minutes of the second period en route to his 18th career shutout. Mike Richards, in the fourth season of a 12-year, $69 million contract extension, scored his ninth goal in 10 games and 12th overall.

The Sharks, who outshot Vancouver 45-27 in a 3-2 home loss on Saturday, were shut out for the third time this season. Antti Niemi made 31 saves.
