LOS ANGELES – the Kings (19-7-4) defeated a weary New York Islanders team last Saturday, by a score of 3 to 0 in regulation. The Islanders, who are suffering from a dismal season (8-17-5) were unable to score against rookie goaltender, Martin Jones.

Jones faced just 16 shots from the Islanders, thanks in part to strong defensive play from the rest of the Kings. This was only Jones' second NHL game.

Getting on the scoreboard for Los Angeles were Anze Kopitar, Dustin Brown, and Tyler Toffoli.

Having won three straight games, the Kings now head out for a four-game road trip. They will be facing the Canadiens, Maple Leafs, Senators, and the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Blackhawks, before returning back to Staples Center.

Montreal, who have scored 16 goals in their last five games (and have won nine of their last 10), will present a challenge for the Kings tomorrow night. Without a doubt, goaltenders Ben Scrivens or Jones will see a lot of action.

The Kings return home on December 17, when they host Edmonton.
