    Marty Turco's 500th game for the Stars was less than stellar.

    Alexander Frolov had a goal and two assists, Jonathan Quick stopped 31 shots and the Los Angeles Kings came roaring out of the Olympic break with a 5-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night.

    The 16-day gap between games didn't slow the momentum of Quick and the Kings, who are 11-1-1 in their last 13 games.

    Quick looked sharp even though he didn't see any action for the U.S. Olympic team as Ryan Miller's backup. He allowed only a power-play goal and improved to 11-1 in his last 12 games, setting a Kings record with his 36th win of the season.

    Marty Turco had 17 saves in his 500th game for the Stars.

    Dallas sits in 10th place in the Western Conference. The team is two spots out of playoff contention heading into the final month of the season.
