Los Angeles Kings 5, Colorado Avalanche 0
DENVER (AP) -- Jonathan Quick stopped 23 shots for his third shutout of the season, Dustin Brown had two goals and two assists and the Los Angeles Kings beat Colorado 5-0 on Tuesday night to end the Avalanche's six-game win streak.

Rob Scuderi had a goal and an assist, Brad Richardson and Justin Williams also scored and Anze Kopitar and Drew Doughty had two assists apiece for the Kings.

Craig Anderson had 27 saves for Colorado, which was shut out for the first time this season. The last time the Avalanche were blanked was a 3-0 loss at Los Angeles on Feb. 13 - a span of 55 games.

The Kings took a 1-0 lead in the first period on Scuderi's first goal of the season. Anderson saved Scuderi's initial shot from the point, but the puck ricocheted to the right circle where Scuderi picked it up and slid a backhander past Anderson with 7:34 left.

It stayed that way until early in the second period. Doughty took a shot from the top of the right circle that Richardson deflected past Anderson with the blade of his stick to make it 2-0 with 13:29 remaining.

It was Richardson's fifth goal, and fourth against Colorado.

Both goalies made big saves. Quick stopped Matt Duchene on a chance midway through the second, and Anderson made key stops late in the period. The last came on Kopitar's shot from the left with a minute remaining in the period.

Duchene nearly spoiled the shutout midway through the third but his wrist shot from the left circle rattled off the post and Quick covered up the rebound.

Brown iced the game with two goals in the third period, his 12th and 13th of the season. Williams scored a power-play goal with 2:11 left, his 12th goal of the year.

NOTES: St. Louis is now the only team that has not been shut out this season. ... Brown has 22 points in his last 20 games. ... The Avs had scored at least three goals in their previous eight games.
