Game report: Kings 3, Hurricanes 0

Key play: Goaltender Jonathan Quick stopped the Carolina Hurricanes’ first shot and their 40th and everything in between during the Kings’ 3-0 victory Friday at Staples Center, their fourth win in a row. It was his 38th career shutout.

Pivotal performer: Kings left wing Tyler Toffoli scored his team-leading fifth and sixth goals, including a power-play strike at 11:06 of the first period that extended his goal-scoring streak to a career-high four games.

Quote, unquote: “I try to find the open ice and try to have a step and an idea of where it is going to go,” Toffoli said when asked if the puck follows him around the ice. “I think right now it’s working well for me. I’m just playing like I always did while growing up, trying to find that open ice.”

Roster move: The Kings placed defenseman Matt Greene on injured reserve because of an upper-body injury. The move is retroactive to Oct. 13. There is no timetable for Greene’s return to the active roster. He hasn’t been cleared to resume full contact drills.

Between the pipes: Quick returned to the Kings’ net after Jhonas Enroth stopped 39 shots in a 4-1 victory Thursday over the Sharks in San Jose. Quick started each of the Kings’ first five games, going 2-3 with a 2.59 goals-against average and an .898 save percentage.

Special teams: Toffoli’s first-period goal was the Kings’ fourth in 26 power-play chances to start the season. They were mired in a 1-for-21 man-advantage slump before scoring twice in four opportunities on the power play during Thursday’s victory over the Sharks.

Up next: The Kings begin a two-game trip against Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday.
