Evgeni Nabokov made 34 saves to win his seventh contest in his last nine decisions.

The Kings are 1-3-1 on their six-game road trip that ends this Sunday against the Dallas Stars.

Michael Grabner, who had gone eight games without a goal, found a rebound in front and recorded his 15th of the season just 6:52 into the game.

The Kings controlled much of the second period, tying the game 1-1 and finishing the first 40 minutes with a 24-12 edge in shots.

Captain Dustin Brown’s rebound shot went in off teammate Andrei Loktionov’s stick in front at 5:20. It was Loktionov’s first goal of the season in his 34th game and first in exactly one year.

Jordan Nolan, the son of former Islanders and Buffalo Sabres coach Ted Nolan, made his NHL debut for the Kings. Dustin Penner was a healthy scratch for Los Angeles.
