LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The Los Angeles Kings spent much of the afternoon trapped in their own end while the Minnesota Wild pelted them with 41 shots.Thanks to Jonathan Quick and two more timely contributions from That 70s Line, the Kings are still perfect on their homestand.Quick made 40 saves and Tyler Toffoli had a goal and an assist in the 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 are dominating their six-game homestand despite long stretches of indifferent offensive play.I dont think weve had our game for the last little while, centre Jarret Stoll said. Were winning on penalty-killing and goaltending.Thats enough when the champions can get incredibly consistent production from That 70s Line — the jersey-number-inspired nickname for Jeff Carters combo with youngsters Toffoli and Pearson. The trio has scored 11 of Los Angeles 14 goals this season.The NHLs best defensive team last season is back in top form again. Cookes goal was just the third by Los Angeles opponents in 245 minutes during the homestand, and Quick was stellar in the Kings crease after tying Rogie Vachons franchise record with his 32nd career shutout Thursday.Sometimes on a longer homestand, it gets to be the same thing every day, so we knew we had to get up for these guys, Quick said. Its good to get that level of competition on a homestand.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.I feel like we controlled a lot of the play, but Quick played a fantastic game, Minnesota forward Zach Parise said about his U.S. Olympic teammate. I guess everyone has kind of grown accustomed to seeing a game like that out of him. I like how were playing. Our system is working really well, so well be fine. We just played two very good teams, and we played very well as a whole in both of the games. We just couldnt find a goal.Los Angeles held the Wild scoreless on five power plays, extending Minnesotas season-opening drought to 0 for 16. The Wild repeatedly cycled the puck in the Kings end, but Quick was on top of almost everything that came his direction.Theres not much that we can change besides scoring goals, Minnesota forward Thomas Vanek said. Its not like were trying to be too pretty. We were shooting a lot. We were tipping. We were going for loose rebounds. But Quick was on his game, which we all knew. Hes a world-class goalie, and he showed that today.Backstrom was solid in his first start of the season for Minnesota. He hadnt played since Jan. 30 after undergoing surgery on his abdomen and hip last season.Toffoli jumped on a loose puck to score the Kings second power-play goal in 19 tries this season — and Minnesotas first power-play goal allowed — after Mike Richards pass deflected off Ryan Suters skate in the crease.Minnesota dominated long stretches of the first two periods, and rookie Christian Folin sparked the Wild when he sent Anze Kopitar into the boards with a ferocious check, prompting Richards to instigate a fight.Pearsons linemates set up his team-leading fifth goal early in the third period, with Toffoli feeding him in the slot for a one-timer.Cooke finally scored on a backhand when he was left unguarded in front of Quick, whose shutout streak ended at more than 111 minutes.Former Minnesota forward Marian Gaborik missed his third straight game for the Kings, and defenceman Jake Muzzin still hasnt played this season. Both Stanley Cup winners are out with injuries.NOTES: Minnesota scratched rookie D Matt Dumba, the last player to touch the puck on the turnover that led to Corey Perrys winning goal for Anaheim on Friday night. D Keith Ballard also was a healthy scratch. ... Both teams have the next three days off. Los Angeles hosts Buffalo on Thursday, and Minnesota returns home to face Arizona. ... Minnesotas Jason Zucker barely avoided serious injury when Kyle Cliffords skate blade nearly grazed his throat after Zucker tripped Clifford in the second period.

Greaves is expected to miss several weeks after suffering a knee injury in last weeks 36-28 win over the Ottawa Redblacks. . In their first meeting for six years, the Frenchmen dropped serve twice in the first set, but Giquel broke Simon two more times in the second. Gicquel moves on to face sixth-seeded Jarkko Nieminen of Finland, who advanced with a 7-6 (5), 7-6 (5) win against wild card Pierre-Hugues Herbert, despite the Frenchmans 23 aces. Cheap Jordan 12 For Sale . After Mondays comments by Coach Claude Noel that its work first and skill second, and that more “A” games are needed, the Jets responded with a 47-shot effort.

Air Jordan Retro 12 Wholesale . 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell.CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Todd Frazier got a second opportunity and made the most of it. Chris Heisey scored from first base on Fraziers 10th-inning double into the left-field corner, and the Cincinnati Reds rallied to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 Sunday. Fraziers soft line drive resulted in an inning-ending double play in sixth, when the Reds had loaded the bases against Kyle Lohse. "Fortunately, I got another chance," Frazier said. "The best thing about baseball is you get another chance tomorrow. This time, I only wanted three innings." Heisey drew a two-out, four-pitch walk from Tyler Thornburgh (3-1), and Frazier followed with a line drive that one-hopped the wall. Heisey beat shortstop Jean Seguras off-target relay to the plate to give the Reds three wins in their four-game series against the team with the majors best record at 21-11. "Heisey grinded out a walk and then had to bust it," Cincinnati manager Bryan Price said. "They played the ball perfectly." Third base coach Steve Smith had been criticized by some for having runners thrown out at home several times this season. "Im not known for my eagle eye at the plate. The key is not to get caught up in the moment and swing at bad pitches" said Heisey, who was inserted into the starting lineup when Jay Bruce was scratched with a sore left knee. "Any time the ball is down the line or in the gap, Im thinking of scoring." Brandon Phillips greeted reliever Brandon Kintzler with a tying 425-foot homer to centre with one out in the eighth, Phillips second homer this season and first since April 5. Sam LeCure (1-1) pitched the 10th for the win. Lohse allowed a season-high eight hits, including Brayan Penas home run. Lohse lasted 6 1-3 innings, giving up two runs with one walk and two strikeouts. "It was a weird outing for me," Lohse said.dddddddddddd"They did a good job mixing it up. At first, they were super aggressive. I tried to use that, and they starting taking. They made me work for the outs that I got." Cincinnati starter Alfredo Simon, who hadnt allowed more than two runs in any of his first five starts, gave up three in seven innings, along with five hits. Scooter Gennett hit Simons third pitch of the game 357 feet into the right-field seats for his second homer of this season. The Brewers made it 2-0 in the third on Jonathan Lucroys two-out, RBI single. Pena hit the first pitch of the third inning 456 feet over the right-field wall for his third homer of the season, all in the last five days. He left for a pinch runner with a tight hamstring in the seventh. Khris Davis restored the two-run lead with a solo homer in the fourth. Cincinnati again made it a one-run game in the bottom half on Fraziers sacrifice fly after Phillips led off with a double -- his fourth hit in five at-bats since getting Friday off. Milwaukee had been 4-0 in extra-inning games and 4-0 in one-run games. "We need to send a message that were in this thing and we have to prove it to ourselves," Price said after the Reds improved to 15-16. "Being around .500 isnt what were all about." NOTES: Davis has 15 home runs in his two-year big league career, including five against the Reds. ... Price expects LHP Aroldis Chapman to be activated for the Reds homestand that is scheduled to start Friday. Chapman is due to take Sunday and Monday off before starting and pitching an inning for Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday. He is to throw an inning of relief on Wednesday. Chapman is coming back from surgery to repair injuries to his left eye sustained when he was struck by a line drive during a spring training game on March 19.
