Scrivens, Toffoli lead Kings to 1-0 win over NYR
LOS ANGELES 1, NY RANGERS 0

By IRA PODELL
AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK (AP) -- Ben Scrivens hasn't given up a goal in more than
2 1/2 games, and the person least impressed with his
performance is the backup goalie himself.

Scrivens stopped all 37 New York Rangers shots and posted his
second consecutive shutout in place of injured regular Jonathan
Quick as the Los Angeles Kings completed a successful Eastern
road trip with a 1-0 victory Sunday night.

"It's only three games. I wouldn't look too much into it,"
Scrivens said in matter of fact fashion as he drank from a water
bottle. "The guys play well in front of me. I'm just trying to
go out and give the team a chance."

The job for the rest of the Kings has become much easier
recently because of Scrivens, who has gone 155 minutes, 2
seconds without allowing a goal. Aaron Ness of the New York
Islanders was the last to get a puck past him, in the second
period of Los Angeles' 3-2 win on Thursday.

Scrivens followed that up with a shutout of the New Jersey
Devils on Friday. His blanking of the Rangers finished the
Kings' 3-0-1 trip that started with a shootout loss at Buffalo
on Tuesday.

Scrivens' best stop came six minutes into the third period when
his right arm stopped Mats Zuccarello's shot off a rebound in
front.

"He just had to be solid," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "It
was very much a team thing."

Los Angeles, 5-0-1 in its last six, will begin a three-game
homestand Tuesday against Tampa Bay.

"We've just got to get back to L.A. now," Scrivens said. "A
couple of home games, and we get to sleep in our own beds a
little bit and try to continue this."

New York's Dominic Moore thought he tied it with 2:41 remaining,
but the goal was disallowed because he kicked it in with his
right skate.

Henrik Lundqvist stopped 29 shots in the hard-luck loss. The
Rangers, 7-3 in their last 10, failed to follow up on their 1-0
win at Montreal on Saturday with backup Cam Talbot in net. New
York dropped its second straight at home.

"We were a little inconsistent at times, but we had our chances
and opportunities," Rangers captain Ryan Callahan said. "We
played well, but you have to find a way to get one."

Tyler Toffoli broke the scoreless deadlock 1:23 into the second
period with his fourth goal in just seven NHL games this season.
Toffoli, who netted the winning goal late in regulation against
the Islanders, cashed in again with some help from the Rangers.

The 21-year-old center spun and fired a shot from above the
circles. Lundqvist slid to his right to get into position to
make the save, but the puck hit the skate of New York defenseman
Anton Stralman and caromed to Lundqvist's left and into the
vacated part of the net.

Lundqvist thrust backward in the crease in disbelief and disgust
as the Kings celebrated.

"It was definitely a frustrating loss because I felt we had
enough chances to tie it up and maybe win," Lundqvist said. "We
needed some puck luck, and I felt like we didn't have it.

"Just a really tough, frustrating loss."

The Kings needed a break to get a puck past Lundqvist, who
appeared sharp after getting a game off. He kept the Rangers in
it as Los Angeles held a 10-2 shots edge in the first half of
the second period.

During an extended flurry in front, Lundqvist made several saves
and was bailed out when one drive struck the left post behind
him.

The Rangers certainly had their chances at the other end against
Scrivens, but he was also up to the task. New York had
back-to-back scoring opportunities while short-handed, including
a 2-on-1 break that failed to produce a shot.

Then the Kings were called for three consecutive penalties
midway through the second - including a call for too many men on
the ice and another for delay of game - but New York couldn't
take advantage despite having a pair of abbreviated 5-on-3 power
plays. The Rangers' goal at Montreal on Saturday was scored
during a 5-on-3 advantage.

"Luckily for us they weren't extended 5 on 3s," Kings forward
Anze Kopitar said. "We killed their momentum and gained some
momentum ourselves."

NOTES: Scrivens has three shutouts this season and five in three
NHL seasons. ... Toffoli, recalled from Manchester (AHL) on Nov.
2, has eight points and three game-winning goals. ... Rangers D
Michael Del Zotto was a healthy scratch for the second straight
game. New York went with 6-foot-5 defenseman Justin Falk against
the big Kings lineup. ... New York LW Rick Nash missed his 17th
game due to a concussion but is eyeing a return in the upcoming
week. ... New York RW Derek Dorsett played in his 300th NHL
game. ... Mike Richards, who assisted on Toffoli's goal, has 10
points in seven games and 13 in 12 contests.
