Goals by Wayne Simmonds and Claude Giroux gave the Philadelphia Flyers a 2-0 victory over the struggling Kings on Saturday at Staples Center.

It was the eighth loss in the last nine games for the Kings, whose ability to score has all but disappeared.

Simmonds, who was traded by the Kings to Philadelphia in 2011, scored with 12:12 left in the second period. His teammate, Vincent Lecavalier, took a pass and appeared set to shoot, drawing Kings goalie Jonathan Quick away from the net. But Lecavalier instead passed to Simmonds who converted a wide-open shot.
