ST. PAUL, Minn. - Dustin Brown's goal and assist helped ignite a four-goal first period, Martin Jones earned his fifth career shutout, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Minnesota Wild 4-0 on Wednesday night.

Mike Richards, Tyler Toffoli and Justin Williams also scored for the Kings, who won on the road for just the second time this season.

Starting his second straight game and given a comfortable lead after the first, Jones stopped 28 shots for his first shutout since April 10, 2014. On Tuesday night, Jones was in the net when the Kings lost after a six-round shootout at Nashville.

Darcy Kuemper gave up all four first-period goals on 10 shots before being replaced by Niklas Backstrom to start the second.
