According to TSN on Thursday, the Los Angeles Kings shutout the Calgary Flames 2-0 at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

Kings' goaltender Jonathan Quick made 25 saves in the victory to reduce his season's goals against average to 2.11.

Kings' captain Dustin Brown scored the unassisted game winning goal for the Kings at the three minute mark of the first period. The Kings then notched an insurance marker at 3:30 of the third period when Dwight King scored a shorthanded goal from Brown and defenseman Jake Muzzin.

This was the first National Hockey League game for Flames' goaltender Joni Ortio. The Flames' sixth round pick, 171st overall, made 22 saves in 24 save opportunities. Ortio, who is from Turku, Finland, is the fourth goaltender the Flames have used this season following Karri Ramo, Reto Berra and Joey MacDonald.

With the win, the Kings improve to 33-22-6, and the Flames drop to 22-30-7. Calgary's next game will be on Saturday night when they take on their provincial rival, the Edmonton Oilers from the Alberta capital.

The Oilers are the only team in the Western Conference that has a worse record than the Flames.
