LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mason Raymond broke a tie with a short-handed goal early in the third period and the Toronto Maple Leafs snapped the Los Angeles Kings’ eight-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory Thursday night.
James Reimer made 31 saves in the final two periods after replacing the injured Jonathan Bernier for the Leafs, who have won four of five. Captain Dion Phaneuf and Carl Gunnarsson also scored as Toronto beat both Southern California NHL clubs in a four-day span.
Marian Gaborik had an early goal and an assist in his home debut with the Kings, who fell just short of matching the longest winning streak in franchise history.
Anze Kopitar had a power-play goal and Jonathan Quick stopped 26 shots in his first loss since Feb. 3.
