he Los Angeles Kings scored three goals in a span of 2:33 in the second period, as they crushed the Vancouver Canucks 5-1. Dan Hamhuis had Vancouver’s lone goal.

Jonathan Quick had to be sharp for the Kings early, as Vancouver played a strong opening 10 minutes. Quick made a pair of big stops off Daniel Sedin and Ryan Kesler just a couple minutes before Jordan Nolan opened the scoring on a wrist shot from the slot.

Los Angeles extended its lead in the final minute of the first. A centering pass hit Tyler Toffoli’s skate and slid in, but it was not a kicking motion, so it counted as a goal.

Vancouver thought it had gotten on the board early in the second, when Alex Burrows beat Quick, but the referee quickly waved the goal off as Burrows kicked it in.

A few minutes later, the Canucks did break Quick’s shutout bid. Hamhuis wired a slapshot home with Daniel Sedin providing a terrific screen in front.
