Despite a rough third period dominated by Calgary, the champs finished their five-game homestand with four victories. With steadily improving play after a rough start to the season, Los Angeles trails only Chicago and Anaheim in the West race.
Mikael Backlund ruined Quick's shutout bid with 5:22 to play for last-place Calgary, which has lost six straight on the road.
