Toffoli, Kopitar, Quick shine as Kings blast Canucks


The Los Angeles Kings enjoyed enough standout performances on Monday that it’s tough to single out one player.

So, instead, let’s list the most outstanding outputs in the Kings’ 5-0 win against the Vancouver Canucks.

(The highlights clip above hits the high notes nicely, by the way.)

  • Tyler Toffoli earned the second hat trick of his NHL career. He also generated the game-winner via his opening tally. He now has 17 goals in 2015-16.

  • Anze Kopitar may have enjoyed the best overall night of any Kings skater, as he generated four assists and was quite the all-around performer:

  • Jonathan Quick didn’t just generate a shutout, he made a little bit of history along the way.

As great as the Kings were, this was at times an embarrassing night for the Canucks. Sven Baertschi‘s upper-body ailment adds injury to all the insults.
