Leafs Top Spiraling Kings, 3-2

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Nikolai Kulemin scored the tiebreaking goal with 15:02 to play, James Reimer made 30 saves, and the Toronto Maple Leafs won their fourth straight road game, 3-2 over the spiraling Los Angeles Kings on Monday night.

Phil Kessel and Darryl Boyce scored 34 seconds apart in the second period for the Maple Leafs, who reached the midway point of their season with three straight wins. Toronto hasn’t lost on the road since Dec. 18.

Wayne Simmonds and Michal Handzus scored for the Kings, who have lost six of seven — including five of six on their current eight-game homestand.

Jonathan Quick stopped 25 shots, but the Kings missed several chances to tie it in the final minutes, including a 6-on-4 advantage in the final 1:42.
