COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Anze Kopitar scored his 100th and 101st career goals and the Los Angeles Kings tied a season high with their fourth straight win, 4-1 over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night.

Jonathan Quick was at his best during a Columbus blitz in the opening 2 minutes, stopping seven shots at the outset on his way to 29-save night.

Matt Greene and Ryan Smyth also scored for the Kings, who have won four straight for the fourth time this season.

The Kings came in with the league's sixth-best road record and are now 17-10-1. They have won five straight on the road.

Antoine Vermette ended Quick's shutout with his 17th goal midway through the third period.
