Los Angeles Kings Get Shutout 3-0 by Chicago Blackhawks

Chicago's Corey Crawford made 32 saves while Marian Hossa scored into an empty net with 1 minute, 10 seconds remaining. Hossa passed it into the net to finish off a 3-0 win and cheerfully pointed at the ref.

"I still think there's some areas we still got to feel that we can be better at look, and build on positives that we've achieved, " Quenneville told the team's official website Saturday, one day after Chicago (4-3-1) rallied for a 3-2 overtime victory against New Jersey.

Rank the Kings, y'all! In between, Chicago (5-3-1) did just enough while the Kings (4-5-0) failed to capitalize on the chances they did have.

Crawford, who has played rather well all season, recorded the 20th shutout of his career. Defensively, the Los Angeles Kings are allowing 3.1 goals per game and are killing 73.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Anisimov took a ideal pass from Hossa and shoveled the puck into a yawning cage with Kings goalie Peter Budaj's focus on Hossa.

In Edmonton, Craig Anderson returned following his wife's cancer diagnosis and made 37 saves for his second shutout in two starts. He was busier at the end, stopping 13 third-period shots from the Kings.

"We're getting chances, but I don't think we're getting really the Grade A quality (chances) that we're looking for from the middle of the ice", Kings center Anze Kopitar said. Hossa started it by winning a board battle, then running a give-and-go with Panarin. "They don't come around often, and so we've got to do it". Toews added an assist. The home team has also won four of the last five games between the Kings and Blackhawks. It seemed like each pairing knew where the other guy was at all times, and we were moving the puck quick out of our zone too.

However, Budaj hasn't faced Chicago since April 9, 2014, while playing for Montreal.

Continued pressure from the Hawks will result in a more consistent penalty kill, which ultimately will result in more confidence in those lines. He also skated Monday as he recovers from a left foot injury he suffered blocking a shot in the exhibition finale October 8. Quenneville said the rookie possibly could return Tuesday against Calgary. Hossa had been honored in a pre-game ceremony for passing 500 career goals earlier in the month.
