|L.A. Defeats Blackhawks
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Jonathan Quick made 38 saves to earn his NHL-leading fifth shutout, and Trent Hunter and Jarret Stoll scored to lead the Los Angeles Kings past the Chicago Blackhawks 2-0 on Wednesday night.
Quick was solid in earning his 19th NHL shutout, but he wasn't heavily tested until the third period. The Blackhawks managed few prime scoring chances in the first two frames.
The Kings improved to 5-1-1 in their last seven and 3-0-1 under coach Darryl Sutter, who took over behind the Los Angeles bench last week. Sutter spent his eight-year NHL playing career with the Blackhawks, and began his NHL coaching career with Chicago in 1992.
The Blackhawks, who lead the NHL with 50 points, where shut out for the fourth time this season. Chicago is 9-2-1 in its last 12 and 13-3-3 at home.
