COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Mike Richards provided late insurance with his first goal of the season and Jonathan Quick stopped 18 shots to lead the Los Angeles Kings over the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-2 on Tuesday night.

Anze Kopitar, Jeff Carter and Slava Voynov also scored while Justin Williams had three assists for the reigning Stanley Cup champions, who began the night 14th in the Western Conference with six points - two more than last-place Calgary and one fewer than Columbus.

Richards also had an assist and Quick made several big stops in the first and third periods. Columbus managed just two shots on goal in the middle period.

Derick Brassard and Dereck MacKenzie had the Blue Jackets' goals.
