Jonathan Quick made 29 saves to set the Kings franchise record with his 33rd career shutout, and Los Angeles beat the Buffalo Sabres 2-0 on Thursday night for its fifth consecutive victory.

Jeff Carter and Anze Kopitar scored power-play goals for the defending Stanley Cup champions in their first game since defenseman Slava Voynov was suspended indefinitely by the NHL after his arrest on suspicion of domestic violence early Monday.

Voynov, a two-time Stanley Cup winner and a key contributor to the Kings for the past three seasons, hasn't been charged. He was replaced by Jake Muzzin, who returned from injury for his first game of the season.

Jhonas Enroth stopped 37 shots for the Sabres, who have lost seven of eight to start the season.
