Montreal, QC (SportsNetwork.com) -
Martin Jones recorded his second consecutive shutout and six different players lit the lamp as Los Angeles pulled off a milestone 6-0 victory against the Canadiens at Bell Centre.
Jones, in only his third NHL start, continued his shutout streak which began in earnest with a 16-save, 3-0 whitewash of the Islanders on Saturday. On Tuesday, he stopped 30 pucks, including a 17-shot barrage in the opening 20 minutes.
Jordan Nolan, Anze Kopitar, Alec Martinez, Tyler Toffoli, Jake Muzzin and Justin Williams scored for the Kings, who kicked off their four-game road swing with their ninth win in Montreal over 46 seasons.

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
When Boston enforcer Shawn Thornton finally sits down for his disciplinary hearing with the league on Friday, nearly a week will have passed since the Bruins forward made his regrettable decision to physically assault an unsuspecting Brooks Orpik.
So, the justice Thornton receives for his ugly behavior in last Saturday's win over Pittsburgh won't exactly be swift, but hopefully, the extra time is being used to make sure the punishment fits the crime.
