Quick has the Kings' record to himself now, adding onto the record of eight he shared with Rogie Vachon, who set the mark in the 1976-77 season.
"That was great," Quick said. "I think nothing but the best about Rogie and what he's done for this organization. I feel like it was kind of a -- not to say it in a bad way -- but like a matter of time just because of the way the game's going, how defensive minded it is and how goals are so hard to come by nowadays."
The Kings kept pressing through and were rewarded at 5:03 of the first period when Mitchell did a great job to keep the puck in at the point before blasting a shot through traffic that sneaked through Kiprusoff's legs.
"I just thought our decision-making was a step slow tonight and theirs was probably half a step quick," Calgary's Mike Cammalleri said. "It's not good. The result was them executing both ways, and us making poor decisions and allowing them to execute and not forcing them to defend us."
Later in the period, with the Flames killing a penalty to Scott Hannan for interference, Kiprusoff made a great glove grab to stop a blistering slap shot off the stick of Doughty.
At the other end of the ice, Quick made a pad save to deny a scoring opportunity by Alex Tanguay before making a shoulder save to turn aside a shot from the slot by Jay Bouwmeester.
"He's our MVP this year by far," Williams said. "Even though we were up 1-0, they got a couple of chances on the power play and he shut them down. He's been stellar for us all year, and in the biggest game of the year, we needed him."
Brown put the Kings up 2-0 at 4:22 of the second period when he converted a feed from Kopitar to finish off a nice give-and-go play.
The Kings played stifling defense in the third period and held the Flames to just four shots. Quick's only real test came at the midway mark of the final frame when he stood his ground to stop a shot from the slot off the stick of Blake Comeau.
Williams added an empty-net goal to seal the victory.
