Krug’s slap shot from the right circle clanged into the net off the right post, giving Boston a 2-0 edge at 17:51.
Los Angeles sliced it to 2-1 early in the second when Mike Richards circled the net and slipped a pass to Mitchell, who one-timed a shot under the crossbar near the right post.
Quick kept it a one-goal game for the rest of the second with a couple of nice stops. He made a sprawling right-pad stop on Reilly Smith’s bid from the edge of the crease and a glove stop on Zdeno Chara.
NOTES: Boston D Adam McQuaid missed the game after leaving Sunday’s in Chicago with what Julien said, he believed, was a leg injury. “He is being evaluated right now by our medical staff or doctors,” Julien said before the game. “I think, right now, it’s a leg injury.” He had no further update after. ... Julien also said D Dougie Hamilton, who missed his fourth straight with a concussion, may be able to practice soon. “I haven’t been told yet that he’s totally in with us, but that could come soon,” Julien said. ... The Kings played their third of a five-game road trip. They are at Columbus on Tuesday night and Anaheim on Thursday. ... Boston is in the midst of playing seven of nine on the road. The Bruins are off until they’re at Philadelphia on Saturday and the New York Islanders on Sunday. ... Los Angeles won the only other meeting between the teams 4-2 at home on Jan. 9.
