Goals by Wayne Simmonds and Claude Giroux gave the Philadelphia Flyers a 2-0 victory over the struggling Kings on Saturday at Staples Center.
It was the eighth loss in the last nine games for the Kings, whose ability to score has all but disappeared.
Simmonds, who was traded by the Kings to Philadelphia in 2011, scored with 12:12 left in the second period. His teammate, Vincent Lecavalier, took a pass and appeared set to shoot, drawing Kings goalie Jonathan Quick away from the net. But Lecavalier instead passed to Simmonds who converted a wide-open shot.
It was Simmonds' 18th goal of the season and the 100th of his National Hockey League career.
Giroux scored his 17th goal of the season with 1:58 left in the third period during a Flyers power play. He took a pass from Scott Hartnell and shot the puck past Quick.
The Kings have scored only three goals in their last six games, and all three were made by center Anze Kopitar.
