Kings hand Flyers their first loss

Mike Richards' return to Philadelphia was 2, at Wells Fargo Center.

Skating on a power play in the extra session, Richards used a slap pass from the high slot to get the puck down to the inside left circle, where Johnson redirected it behind Ilya Bryzgalov 1:39 in for the win.

Richards, 26, had spent his entire career in Philadelphia and was the captain of the team before a surprise trade in the offseason that saw him shipped out west for forwards Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn, and a second-round draft pick in 2012.

Justin Williams, another former Flyer, scored twice in regulation while Jonathan Quick stopped 32 shots for the Kings, who had dropped their previous two.

Danny Briere and Matt Carle each scored for the Flyers, who came into the game having won their first three games of the season. Bryzgalov stopped 23 shots in the loss.
