Bernier Records Shutout As Kings Top Oilers, 2-0

Edmonton, AB (Sports Network) - Jonathan Bernier stopped 32 shots for his third shutout of the season as Los Angeles topped Edmonton, 2-0. The Kings have 94 points to remain in fifth place in the Western Conference, two ahead of Nashville and one back of Phoenix. Dustin Brown scored both goals with Trevor Lewis assisting on both for Los Angeles, which has won its past four games.

Nikolai Khabibulin made 31 stops for the Oilers, who have lost their past 10 games. Both of the goals in this game came in the second period. The first came at the 5:11 mark when Lewis threw a pass from the left side to the front where Brown tapped it in.

With 5:04 to play it was a 2-0 game as Lewis stripped the puck off an Oiler and fed it over to Brown for a quick shot into the net. Bernier, who made seven stops in the first period, made 25 over the final two frames to preserve the shutout.
