Kings Hang On To Beat Blue Jackets 2-1, Win 5 Straight At Home

┬áLOS ANGELES (AP) — Kyle Clifford scored the tiebreaking goal, Jonathan Quick made 20 saves, and the Los Angeles Kings slowed the Columbus Blue Jackets’ late-season surge with a 2-1 victory Thursday night.

Drew Doughty scored an early power-play goal for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who kept pace with San Jose for fourth place in the Western Conference by snapping Columbus’ five-game winning streak one shy of the franchise record in a defense-dominated game.

Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 21 shots and Dalton Prout scored his first NHL goal for the eighth-place Blue Jackets, who lost for the first time in four stops on their six-game trip.
