Justin Williams had a power-play goal and an assist in his 800th career game, Jonathan Quick made 20 saves and the Los Angeles Kings slowed their recent slide with a 4-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night.

Jeff Carter, Alec Martinez and captain Dustin Brown also scored for the Kings, who won for just the second time in eight games with a largely dominant effort against the Atlantic Division leaders. Quick earned his second win since his return from a 24-game injury absence, allowing just four goals in three games.

Justin Florek scored his first career goal for the Bruins, who have lost on the first two stops of their three-game California road trip. Tuukka Rask gave up three goals on 18 shots before Chad Johnson replaced him.
