Kings Shutout Coyotes, 1-0

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Jonathan Bernier made 25 saves for his second shutout of the season and the Kings edged the Coyotes, 1-0, at Staples Center. Jarret Stoll's power-play tally in the third period was the lone offense as the Kings won for the fourth time in five games. Bernier started for the first time since February 24.

Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 17-of-18 shots in Phoenix's fifth consecutive loss. The game was deadlocked for more than 52 minutes, but the Kings broke the tie with Phoenix defenseman Rostislav Klesla in the penalty box for a high stick. Los Angeles worked the puck around the zone before Anze Kopitar, behind the goal line, found Stoll at the point with a strong pass. Stoll unleashed a slap shot that got through traffic and Bryzgalov at 12:13.

The Coyotes put together several rushes and pressured in the Kings' zone in the final minute, but Bernier held strong.
