Kings close in on Pacific crown, beat Oilers 2-0

LOS ANGELES — Jonathan Quick made 19 saves in his NHL-leading 10th shutout, Slava Voynov scored in the opening minute of the third period, and the Los Angeles Kings moved closer to their second division title in franchise history with a 2-0 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Monday night.

Dwight King also scored with 2:32 to play for the Kings, who began a frantic final week in the Pacific Division by earning their 93rd point and opening a two-point lead over Phoenix (91), which sits seventh in the Western Conference. San Jose (90) and Dallas (89) also are in an impossibly tight race for the division crown and three playoff spots.

The Kings began the day in first place on a tiebreaker with Phoenix.
