LOS ANGELES — The line of Viktor Arvidsson, Trevor Moore and Phillip Danault combined to score 11 points for the Los Angeles Kings in a 6-3 win against the Philadelphia Flyers at Staples Center on Saturday.

Arvidsson had two goals and two assists, Moore had a goal and three assists, and Danault had a goal and two assists for the Kings (16-12-5), who have won three of four. Jonathan Quick made 34 saves.

Joel Farabee had a goal and an assist, Cam Atkinson had three assists, and Martin Jones made 28 saves for the Flyers (13-13-6), who had their seven-game point streak end (5-0-2).

Arvidsson scored 12 seconds into the game to make it 1-0 when he converted on a wraparound after Los Angeles won the opening face-off.

The goal was tied for the third-fastest to start a game in Kings history.

Atkinson had the chance to tie it on a penalty shot at 12:16, but Quick made the save with his right pad.

Farabee responded 41 seconds later, though, with his 10th goal of the season to tie it 1-1.

The Kings moved back in front 2-1 at 14:27 of the first when Moore scored with a backhand near the right post following a wraparound try from Danault.

Adrian Kempe then scored 46 seconds into the second period to make it 3-1, taking advantage of a broken stick by Flyers forward Patrick Brown and beating Jones with a one-timer just as a 5-on-3 power play expired.

Brendan Lemieux drove to the net and scored after losing control of the puck to extend the lead to 4-1 at 13:27.

Kevin Hayes cut it to 4-2 at 2:42 of the third period on a one-timer from the right circle during a 5-on-3 power play and Jones pulled for the extra skater.

Danault made it 5-2 off a feed from Moore on a 2-on-1 at 11:17.

Ivan Provorov scored on a one-timer from the point with 3:59 left to make it 5-3, but Arvidsson shot into an empty net with 1:44 left for the 6-3 final.
