LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Anze Kopitar scored two goals in the first period, Jonathan Quick made 24 saves, and the Los Angeles Kings kept rolling toward the playoffs with their sixth straight victory, 4-2 over the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday night.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
