The LA Kings rallied for a 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Monday and are 3-1-1 in their last five games. Jonathan Quick stopped 33 shots to earn his 302nd NHL victory, which is fourth-best among U.S.-born goaltenders.
The game was tied at 3 before Paul LaDue scored midway through the third period. The defenseman, who was playing in only his 15th game this season and first since Dec. 29, snapped a wrist shot from the right faceoff circle past Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington for his second goal of the season.
Tyler Toffoli had a goal and an assist while Brendan Leipsic had two assists. Drew Doughty also scored for Los Angeles, which is 2-0 against St. Louis this season.
Mackenzie MacEachern, Oskar Sundqvist and Ryan O'Reilly scored for St. Louis, which had won seven of its previous 11 road games. Alex Pietrangelo and Ivan Barbashev both had two assists, and Binnington made 25 saves.
The Blues travel to Anaheim on Wednesday for their final game before the All-Star break.
