Kings reign supreme; Oilers suffer spill

The Los Angeles Kings' goaltender Jonathan Quick registered his 41st career shutout in the NHL to help his side to a 5-0 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Quick made 32 saves to ensure that goals from Kris Versteeg, Milan Lucic, Vincent Lecavalier, Dustin Brown and Tyler Toffoli earned the Kings the victory.

The New York Islanders launched a third-period recovery to earn a 3-2 win against the Florida Panthers.

Trailing 2-0 after the the opening two periods, the Islanders found their form in the final 20 minutes and goals from Kyle Okposo, Josh Bailey and Cal Clutterbuck sealed their come-from-behind success.

Michael Frolik scored a hat-trick to inspire the Calgary Flames to a 7-4 win against the St Louis Blues.

After opening his account in the first period, Frolik scored two in the final three minutes of the match to fend off the Blues' comeback.

James Neal also struck a hat-trick as his sixth NHL treble gave the Nashville Predators a 3-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers, with his go-ahead goal coming four minutes into the final period.

Elsewhere, there were big wins for the Winnipeg Jets and the Anaheim Ducks. The Jets blitzed the Vancouver Canucks 5-2 and the Ducks dispatched the New Jersey Devils 7-1.
