LA Kings defeat Vancouver Canucks 4-1. Kings’ head coach Terry Murray kept the same lines from Tuesday night’s game against the Atlanta Thrashers. Although they didn’t get as many scoring opportunities, the Kings made the most of it in their 4-1 win over the Canucks.

It is their second win over the Canucks in a week’s span helping bolster the confidence for the team.

“These games are so important to get points on the board,” Murray said. “It was physical. It was gritty. It was very determined on both sides. And you do build confidence off of it.”

The Kings had a lot to feel confident about getting their five-on-five play sorted out. It started early when with the puck meandering around the left shootout circle Jack Johnson, the only player in the vicinity, got it and made a shot attempt that Jarret Stoll tipped in on a block 2:48 into the game.

“The Stoll line was maybe our better line out there today,” Murray remarked.
