 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Martin Jones made 31 saves in his seventh consecutive win to begin his NHL career, and fellow rookie Tyler Toffoli had a goal and an assist in the Los Angeles Kings’ 4-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night.

Dwight King and Jeff Carter also had a goal and an assist apiece for the Kings, who ran over their California rivals for their eighth win in nine games to cap a 15-2-4 stretch since Nov. 2.

Jones’ shutout streak ended at 133 minutes, 26 seconds, but Patrick Marleau’s goal with 2:10 to play was just the sixth Jones has allowed in his club-record 7-0 start.

Kings captain Dustin Brown was ejected for a knee-on-knee hit on Tomas Hertl late in the first period. San Jose’s rookie goal-scorer didn’t return to the game.
