LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Andrew Hammond made 35 saves to earn his second consecutive shutout in his fourth career start, and the Ottawa Senators snapped the Los Angeles Kings' eight-game winning streak with a 1-0 victory Thursday night.
Mike Hoffman scored early in the third period for the Senators, who boosted their unlikely playoff chances with a Southern California sweep on consecutive nights to open their five-game road trip. Ottawa hadn't won at Staples Center in seven tries since Jan. 11, 2000 ? the year the building opened.
Jonathan Quick stopped 27 shots in his 16th consecutive start for the Kings, who fell just short of matching the longest winning streak in franchise history. Los Angeles hasn't scored in more than 117 minutes.
