Sunday's National Hockey League Capsules
S ANGELES (AP) -- Jonathan Quick made 40 saves and Tyler Toffoli had a goal and an assist in the Los Angeles Kings' fourth straight victory, 2-1 over the Minnesota Wild on Sunday.

Toffoli scored an early power-play goal and Tanner Pearson added a third-period goal for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who stayed perfect on their six-game homestand with another dominant game from Quick.

The Kings also got two more goals from That 70s Line - the jersey-number-inspired nickname for Jeff Carter's combo with youngsters Toffoli and Pearson. The trio has scored 11 of Los Angeles' 14 goals this season.

Niklas Backstrom stopped 14 shots and Matt Cooke scored with 13:13 to play for the Wild, who lost back-to-back games in Southern California despite largely impressive performances.

RANGERS 4, SHARKS 0

NEW YORK (AP) - Martin St. Louis and Rick Nash scored 4 seconds apart late in the second period, tying a New York Rangers record, and Henrik Lundqvist made 33 saves against San Jose.

Lundqvist extended his franchise mark with his 51st career shutout as the Rangers (3-3-0) won their second consecutive game after losing three straight.

Carl Hagelin and Kevin Hayes also scored for New York, which handed the Sharks (4-1-1) their first loss in regulation this season.

St. Louis made it 2-0 at 19:16 of the second period with his first of the season. The Rangers won the ensuing faceoff and Nash immediately shot the puck. Sharks goalie Alex Stalock couldn't contain the rebound, and Nash put it in for his league-leading seventh of the season at 19:20.

The two goals 4 seconds apart set a Rangers record for the fastest pair without one being an empty-netter. Kris King and James Patrick scored 4 seconds apart on Oct. 9, 1991, against the New York Islanders, with Patrick's going into an empty net.

DUCKS 3, BLUES 0

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Sami Vatanen scored two power-play goals and Frederik Andersen stopped 27 shots in his first career shutout, leading Anaheim over St. Louis.

Vatanen had his first career multigoal game, scoring on a pair of blistering one-timers as the Ducks (5-1-0) won their fifth straight and extended their home winning streak against St. Louis to eight games.

Brian Elliott made 22 saves for the Blues, who went 1-1-1 on their road trip. St. Louis played without free-agent prize Paul Stastny, who sustained an upper-body injury Friday against Arizona.

Matt Beleskey scored his fourth of the season 1:37 into the first period. Ryan Getzlaf had two assists.

FLAMES 4, JETS 1

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Mason Raymond had a goal and two assists, and Calgary handed Winnipeg its fourth straight loss.

Dennis Wideman, Johnny Gaudreau and Raymond scored against Ondrej Pavelec in a second-period span of 6 minutes, 42 seconds. The Flames finished a six-game road trip with their fourth win away from home.

T.J. Brodie scored Calgary's other goal to add to his career-high, six-game point streak. Wideman and Gaudreau, who was benched in the previous game, each had an assist.

Jonas Hiller stopped 34 shots for the Flames.

Mark Scheifele scored in the first period for Winnipeg. After opening the season with a 6-2 win over Arizona, the Jets have managed two goals during their four-game skid.
