Toffoli Gets Hat Trick; Quick, Kings Beat Canucks 5-0
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Tyler Toffoli scored three goals, Jonathan Quick got the 40th shutout of his NHL career and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Vancouver Canucks 5-0 on Monday night.
The Kings won their second straight and snapped Vancouver's two-game win streak. The Canucks have yet to win three games in a row this season.
Quick made 27 saves in his second shutout this season and was rarely tested. The Kings outshot the Canucks 38-27, leading 1-0 after one period and 3-0 after two.
Toffoli finished his hat trick on a power play with 7:04 left. Derek Forbort got his first NHL goal and Brayden McNabb also scored. Anze Kopitar had four assists.
Vancouver was shut out for the fourth time in its past 11 games.
