Milan Lucic scored the winner as the Los Angeles Kings wrapped up a perfect four-game road trip Thursday night with a 4-1 victory over the Calgary Flames.

Leading 1-0, the Kings opened up a three-goal cushion early in the second period on goals 78 seconds apart.

Tyler Toffoli curled out from behind the goal and put a shot on net that Flames goaltender Karri Ramo stopped, but Lucic swatted in the rebound for his 11th goal of the season at 1:46.

Marian Gaborik, Andy Andreoff and Tanner Pearson, into an empty net, also scored for Los Angeles (24-11-2). With an assist, Toffoli extended his point streak to five games.

The Kings opened up a 12-point lead over the San Jose Sharks in the Pacific Division with the win __their biggest division lead in franchise history.

Mark Giordano scored for Calgary (17-18-2).
