The Kings have lost five straight games, during which they have scored six goals.

The Los Angeles Kings on Monday fired head coach Terry Murray in part because of the lack of offensive production, but on Tuesday got more of the same under interim coach John Stevens. Tuukka Rask saved all 40 shots he faced as the Kings lost 3-0 to the Boston Bruins at TD Garden in Boston.

The Kings have have now lost a season-worst five games and have falled to .500 on the season at 13-13-4. They have scored six goals in their last five games and have two goals or less in nine consecutive games. The Kings are the lowest scoring team in the NHL with 65 goals in 30 games, an average of just 2.17 goals per contest.

The loss by the Kings snapped a five-game winning streak over the Bruins that dated back to 2007. The last time the Kings lost in Boston was January 10, 2002, snapping a four-game streak. The Bruins scored single goals in all three periods, including a pair by Brad Marchand in the final two periods. Patrice Bergeron had two assists for the Bruins, who were outshot by the Kings 40-22 on the night.

The Kings continue their four-game road trip Thursday night in Columbus against the Blue Jackets.
