LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Justin Williams and Jeff Carter scored 98 seconds apart on the first two shots of the game, Williams added a goal on Los Angeles' first shot of the second period, and the Kings beat the Minnesota Wild 3-0 on Thursday night behind Jonathan Bernier's first shutout of the season.

Bernier made 23 saves en route to his sixth NHL shutout and first since Feb. 12, 2012 — also against the Wild at Minnesota. The five-year veteran is 9-0 with a 1.50 goals-against average in 10 starts in which he got the decision.

Williams extended his goal streak to five games, eclipsing his previous career best.
