Jones blanks Habs; Kings pull off rare Montreal win
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.
LA had dropped five in a row in Quebec's largest city since a 4-2 decision on Dec. 11, 1999.
Carey Price was chased after yielding four goals on 16 shots in almost 25 1/2 minutes. Peter Budaj ended the contest with 12 stops for the Canadiens, whose five-game win streak came to a screeching halt.
