Jonathan Quick made 19 saves for his fifth shutout of the season, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-0 on Thursday night.

Justin Williams and Anze Kopitar each had a goal and an assist, and Tyler Toffoli and Marian Gaborik also scored for Los Angeles, which has won four of five and 12 of 16.

The Kings, 3-0 against the Canucks this season with two meetings remaining, jumped over Winnipeg and into the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference. The Jets lost 4-2 at Florida earlier Thursday.

Eddie Lack made 16 saves for Vancouver, which entered play second in the Pacific Division, one point ahead of Calgary and three ahead of the Kings, but the Canucks generated very little against Quick.
