LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- After a rough start, the Philadelphia

Flyers have turned around their season-long, six-game road

swing.

The Flyers aim for their third straight win Saturday when they

visit the Los Angeles Kings, who are coming off a four-day

break.

After dropping its first two contests on the trip by a combined

score of 8-1, Philadelphia has rebounded with a pair of one-goal

triumphs on the West Coast.

Mike Richards scored the lone goal in the shootout after

collecting three assists in regulation, lifting the Flyers to a

5-4 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday.

Philadelphia, which is tied with the New York Rangers atop the

Atlantic Division standings, ends its road trip Tuesday against

the Washington Capitals.

Kings rookie netminder Jonathan Quick is coming off another

impressive performance, but the club lost to the Columbus Blue

Jackets, 2-0, on Monday.

The 22-year-old is 2-3-0 with a 1.72 goals-against average and

.937 save percentage. Los Angeles' offense, however, has

provided little help as both of Quick's victories have come via

shutout.
