Kings 1, Blue Jackets 0

The Kings looked downright dreadful for the first eight minutes or so — they were outshot 7-0 after less than two minutes — but got outstanding play from Jonathan Quick, killed two penalties and actually took the lead. Matt Greene’s slap shot, from just inside the blue line, got through traffic and beat Mason with 8:55 remaining in the first period.
