CHICAGO — Jonathan Quick made 24 saves, Christian Folin scored the game’s first goal midway through the third period Sunday night and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Chicago Blackhawks 3-1 for their fifth straight win.

Folin’s shot from the right point sailed over Anton Forsberg’s glove with Anze Kopitar screening at 9:29. Dustin Brown scored an empty-net goal with 2:03 left to make it 2-0, and Kopitar added another empty-netter after Jonathan Toews of Chicago scored with Forsberg pulled for an extra skater.

Chicago has lost four straight. Forsberg made 21 saves in his second straight start in place of Corey Crawford, who’s out because of a lower-body injury.

The Kings have allowed six goals during their streak, which has them atop the Pacific Division and second in the Western Conference. The run follows a 1-6-1 slide.
