LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Jonathan Quick made 40 saves and Tyler Toffoli had a goal and an assist in the Los Angeles Kings' fourth straight victory, 2-1 over the Minnesota Wild on Sunday.

Toffoli scored an early power-play goal and Tanner Pearson added a third-period goal for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who stayed perfect on their six-game homestand with another dominant game from Quick.

The Kings also got two more goals from That 70s Line ? the jersey-number-inspired nickname for Jeff Carter's combo with youngsters Toffoli and Pearson. The trio has scored 11 of Los Angeles' 14 goals this season.

Niklas Backstrom stopped 14 shots and Matt Cooke scored with 13:13 to play for the Wild, who lost back-to-back games in Southern California despite largely impressive performances.

RANGERS 4, SHARKS 0

NEW YORK (AP) ? Martin St. Louis and Rick Nash scored 4 seconds apart late in the second period, tying a New York Rangers record, and Henrik Lundqvist made 33 saves against San Jose.

Lundqvist extended his franchise mark with his 51st career shutout as the Rangers (3-3-0) won their second consecutive game after losing three straight.

Carl Hagelin and Kevin Hayes also scored for New York, which handed the Sharks (4-1-1) their first loss in regulation this season.

St. Louis made it 2-0 at 19:16 of the second period with his first of the season. The Rangers won the ensuing faceoff and Nash immediately shot the puck. Sharks goalie Alex Stalock couldn't contain the rebound, and Nash put it in for his league-leading seventh of the season at 19:20.

The two goals 4 seconds apart set a Rangers record for the fastest pair without one being an empty-netter. Kris King and James Patrick scored 4 seconds apart on Oct. 9, 1991, against the New York Islanders, with Patrick's going into an empty net.
