TORONTO - James Reimer helped the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 4-3 shootout win over Los Angeles on Sunday, shutting out the Kings in the tiebreaker.

Joffrey Lupul scored the lone goal for Toronto in the shootout. Tyler Bozak was denied by Jonathan Quick, and Mike Santorelli missed.

Reimer turned away Marian Gaborik and Dustin Brown before Anze Kopitar missed for Los Angeles.

The Kings rallied from a 2-0 deficit and led 3-2 in the third before the Leafs forced the overtime.

Toronto has won five straight and is 9-1-1 since a 9-2 loss to visiting Nashville on Nov. 18.

Santorelli, Cody Franson and James van Riemsdyk scored for Toronto before a crowd of 19,219 on a rare 5 p.m. local time Sunday start.

Justin Williams, Dwight King and Gaborik scored for the defending Stanley Cup champion Kings. Quick finished with 28 saves.

BLACKHAWKS 2, FLAMES 1

CHICAGO (AP) ??? Brandon Saad scored with 7:03 left in the third period, and the Blackhawks beat the Flames for their 12th victory in the last 14 games.

After motoring past Calgary defenceman Mark Giordano, Saad took a centring pass from Jonathan Toews and lifted a shot past Jonas Hiller's glove.

Toews also set up Patrick Sharp's power-play goal as the surging Blackhawks dealt the Flames their fifth straight loss. Chicago had won eight in a row before Saturday night's 3-2 loss at the New York Islanders.

Jiri Hudler had his team-leading 12th goal for Calgary, which has scored just eight times during its slide.

Chicago's Antti Raanta made 23 saves while subbing for Corey Crawford, who is out with a foot injury. Hiller finished with 26 stops.
