NHL: Kings beat Flames for second time in three days

AP, LOS ANGELES

Captain Dustin Brown scored two goals and Jonathan Quick made 23 saves as the surging Los Angeles Kings beat the Calgary Flames 3-1 on Monday night for their second win over the Flames in three days.

Brown and Jarret Stoll scored first-period goals, before Brown added an empty-netter for the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings, who moved up to third place in the Western Conference with their 11th win in 14 games.

Despite a rough third period that was dominated by Calgary, the champs finished their five-game homestand with four victories.

With steadily improving play after a rough start to the season, Los Angeles trails only Chicago and Anaheim in the West race.

Mikael Backlund ruined Quick’s shutout bid with 5 minutes, 22 seconds to play for last-place Calgary, who have lost six straight on the road.

BRUINS 3, SENATORS 2

In Ottawa, David Krejci scored the shootout winner and had an assist in regulation as the Boston Bruins defeated the Ottawa Senators 3-2 on Monday night.

Tuuka Rask made 30 saves in regulation and stopped three of four Senators in the shootout, including a bizarre attempt from Kaspars Daugavins. The Ottawa forward carried the puck by pressing down with the tip of his stick before attempting a failed 360o move in front of Rask.

Shawn Thornton and Daniel Paille scored for Boston, who rallied from a 2-0 deficit to win their 10th straight in Ottawa.

Guillaume Latendresse — in his first game back from injury since Jan. 30 — and Kyle Turris scored in regulation for the Senators. Robin Lehner made 33 saves through three periods and overtime.
