NHL: Philadelphia 2, Los Angeles 0
Martin Biron recorded the 25th shutout of his career Wednesday by stopping 34 shots in Philadelphia's 2-0 victory over Los Angeles.
Jeff Carter had a goal and an assist, helping the Flyers to their seventh win in nine games. They moved within four points of Atlantic Division-leading New Jersey.
Erik Ersberg made 18 saves for the Kings, who have lost six of eight. They played the second game in a five-game road trip.
Carter broke the scoreless tie with 3:49 left in the second period. He was able to shove the puck past Ersberg during a goalmouth scramble while the Flyers were on the power play.
It remained a 1-0 game until Simon Gagne scored into an empty net in the final seconds.
