WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Mike Richards scored the winner on a Winnipeg Jets' giveaway to lift the Los Angeles Kings to a 3-1 win Thursday night.

The victory ran the Kings' winning streak to six games.

Dustin Brown scored Los Angeles' first goal and Alec Martinez added a third-period power-play goal. Goalie Jonathan Quick made 17 saves for the Kings (36-22-6).

Olli Jokinen had his 15th goal of the season for Winnipeg (30-27-7) and Ondrej Pavelec stopped 38 shots.

Winnipeg and Phoenix were tied at 67 points heading into the game, one point behind Dallas for the final wild-card spot in the Western Conference.

Vancouver was visiting Dallas on Thursday night and Phoenix was hosting Montreal.
