MONTREAL (AP) -- Jonathan Quick made a season-high 45 saves, and Anze Kopitar and Drew Doughty scored as the Los Angeles Kings beat the Montreal Canadiens 3-0 on Thursday night.

The shutout was Quick's second of the season. Marian Gaborik added an empty-net goal to help the Kings improve to 20-9-2.

Mike Condon made 17 saves for Montreal and has lost four straight starts.

The Canadiens have lost six of their last seven games and scored just 11 goals over that stretch. They fell to 20-10-3.

Quick was sensational throughout the game. Montreal hit him with 18 shots in the first period en route to a season-high for shots on goal.

Quick stopped Tomas Plekanec with the glove late in the first and denied Torrey Mitchell from point-blank range in the second.


TORONTO (AP) -- Brent Burns banked the winning goal off Toronto center Peter Holland's leg 2:13 into overtime.

Joe Pavelski, Patrick Marleau, Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Matt Nieto scored in regulation for San Jose, and Martin Jones had 28 saves.

Holland, Leo Komarov, James van Riemsdyk and Michael Grabner scored for the Maple Leafs, who played their third overtime game in a row and 10th of the season. Jonathan Bernier allowed three goals on 27 shots after replacing injured goaltender Garret Sparks and fell to 0-8-3 this season.


BUFFALO, New York (AP) -- Chad Johnson made 44 saves for his first shutout in nearly 21 months, leading Buffalo over Anaheim.

Evander Kane, Jack McCabe and Jamie McGinn scored for the Sabres, who rebounded from Tuesday's shutout loss to New Jersey.

Johnson got his fourth career shutout, and first since since March 21, 2014, while playing for Boston.

It was the seventh time in 31 games the Sabres have blanked the Ducks, good for the Buffalo's highest shutout-to-games ratio against an opponent.

Anaheim goalie John Gibson finished with 19 saves.


PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Steve Mason made 36 saves, and Michael Raffl and Sean Couturier each scored, leading Philadelphia over slumping Vancouver.

Mason, Philadelphia's No. 1 goalie who was making his first appearance since Dec. 8, returned to form and earned his first victory in his last eight home starts. Philadelphia has won seven of 10 overall.

The Canucks lost their eighth in 10 games, including the first three of a six-game road trip that continues Friday night at Detroit. Vancouver has been outscored 11-2 in the three road games.


NEWARK, New Jersey (AP) -- Brandon Pirri had a goal and two assists, and Jussi Jokinen and Logan Shaw each had a goal and an assist as Florida beat New Jersey.

Cory Schneider made 21 saves and New Jersey lost for the second time in three games.

New Jersey's Sergey Kalinin made it 4-1 with a power-play goal with 6:22 left, but Shaw scored an empty-net goal with 4:44 remaining.

The Panthers went into the first intermission up 2-0 on Jokinen's power-play goal and Kulikov's tally.
