VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Brad Richardson scored with 1:23 left in regulation as the Vancouver Canucks preserved their playoff hopes with a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night.

Richardson took a pass from linemate Zack Kassian at the side of the goal and beat Jonathan Quick for his 11th of the season to keep the Canucks in the playoff chase, at least mathematically. Alexander Edler had the other goal for Vancouver and Eddie Lack stopped 25 shots in his 18th straight start since the Olympic break.

Slava Voynov scored for Los Angeles and Quick finished with 38 saves for Kings, who are locked into the third seed in the Pacific Division.

Down 1-0 after two periods, the Canucks tied it on the power play after Edler’s seventh of the season just 66 seconds into the third stood up after a video review.
