Kings score on first 2 shots of game against Backstrom in 3-0 win over Wild

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.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
