Brown lifts Kings past Flames, 3-1

LOS ANGELES — Captain Dustin Brown scored two goals, Jonathan Quick made 23 saves and the surging Los Angeles Kings beat Calgary 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 champions, who moved up to third place in the Western Conference with their 11th win in 14 games.

Despite a rough third period dominated by Calgary, the Kings 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.

Bruins 3, Senators 2, SO

At Ottawa, Ontario, David Krejci's shootout goal won the game for the Bruins. It was the attempt by Ottawa's Kaspars Daugavins that had everyone talking after the game.

The Senators' forward carried the puck straight toward goalie Tuuka Rask by pinning it with the toe of his stick, then tried a 360-spin move before failing to jam the puck between the post and the skate of Boston's netminder.

Krejci scored on the following attempt and the Bruins defeated the Senators for their 10th straight win in Ottawa.
