Nino Niederreiter and Mikko Koivu each scored two goals, and Devan Dubnyk had 31 saves in his 34th straight start with Minnesota to lead the Wild past the L.A. Kings 4-1 on Saturday night.

Niederreiter had a power-play goal with 3:03 left to play and Koivu added an empty netter with 1:22 remaining to seal Minnesota's fifth straight win.

The Wild snapped the Kings' three-game winning streak and are a league-best 26-6-2 since Jan. 15. They have an NHL-leading 49 points in 30 games since the All-Star break.

Dwight King scored his 11th goal of the season for Los Angeles, and Martin Jones made nine saves on 10 shots in relief of Jonathan Quick, who was pulled after giving up two goals on nine shots in the first period.
