Jeff Carter had only one goal in his last eight games to end the season.

He was surpassed for the team lead in goals by Anze Kopitar Saturday as Carter ended the season with 27 goals, two behind Kopitar who had a pair against the Ducks. Carter is a streaky scorer and could get hot in the playoffs.

Mike Richards ended the season without a point in his last nine games and without an assist in his last 22 contests.

That is pretty bad, even if Richards was a defensive defenseman and not a good scorer in the NHL. He ends the season down in every category as he had only 11 goals and 41 points with a minus-six rating and only 28 penalty minutes. It was not a good season for Richards.

Stephane Quintal will replace Brendan Shanahan as the NHL's top disciplinarian.

Shanahan accepted a job as president of the Toronto Maple Leafs. "The National Hockey League has a first-rate and fully functional team of professionals staffed in the Player Safety Department that will continue to monitor all plays in all games and to flag plays that warrant review and potential discipline," the league said in a release. "There will be no change in the approach that has been established by the Department of Player Safety and the League will take all steps necessary to ensure a consistent standard of enforcement and application of discipline for the balance of this season." When Quintal was a player, he had 115 points and 637 penalty minutes in 507 games.

Anze Kopitar had a goal and an assist in the Kings' 3-0 win on Thursday.

Martin Jones stopped all 17 shots he faced in Los Angeles' 3-0 win over Edmonton Thursday night.

It was Jones' fourth shutout of the season and his record improved to 12-6-0. He also now has a 1.81 goals-against average and .934 save percentage. It has been a very solid season for the rookie goaltender.

Gaborik is now on a three-game point streak with two goals and three assists. He has five goals and 10 assists in 18 games with the Kings this season. Anze Kopitar also had a strong game with a goal and an assist, while Justin Williams added two helpers in the victory.

Mike Richards was apparently bothered this season by an illness in December.

"After being sick, I kind of got out of shape, not playing a lot," said Richards in an interview last week. "It probably took me a couple of weeks to realize that. That's when I started getting back on the bike and doing things." He missed eight games that month with an upper-body injury. Richards skated with Jeff Carter and Tyler Toffoli in Saturday's loss to Vancouver, but he's continued to skate Kyle Clifford and Trevor Lewis this week at practices.
Apr 10 - 4:41 PM

Marian Gaborik recorded an assist in the Kings' 4-3 shootout defeat on Wednesday.

Gaborik has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last eight games. That's brought him up to three goals and 12 points in 17 games since he was acquired by the Los Angeles Kings.
