Jonathan Quick, Kings shut out Stars

Jonathan Quick stopped all 27 shots he faced, and Adrian Kempe recorded his fourth goal in five games as the Los Angeles Kings posted a rare home victory over the Dallas Stars, 4-0 on Thursday night.Quick was solid all night, and stellar when needed, in recording his second shutout of the season for the Kings, who totaled 41 shots.Kempe’s goal early in the second period, Arthur Kaliyev’s fifth of the season late in the third and empty-netters from Viktor Arvidsson and Andreas Athanasiou were more than enough for Los Angeles to end a six-game home losing streak to the Stars.This was just the second win in the last eight home games for Los Angeles.Jake Oettinger made 37 saves for the Stars, who failed to rebound after their club-tying seven-game winning streak ended Wednesday in a 5-4 loss at Vegas. Blanked for the first time this season, Dallas has dropped back-to-back games for the first time since Nov. 7 and 10.Los Angeles recorded the first 13 shots of the night, then Dallas outshot the hosts 9-7 the rest of the opening period. Yet, the first 20 minutes ended without a goal from either club.
