Kings score nine in Bruins rout, Jagr helps Panthers win


The Los Angeles Kings had nine different goalscorers as they completed a 9-2 demolition of the Boston Bruins in the NHL on Tuesday. 

Incredibly, the Bruins held the lead for the majority of the first period before late goals to Jeff Carter and Marian Gaborik put the Kings 2-1 ahead. 

It was in the second period where the Kings did the damage, with goals from Andy Andreoff, Drew Doughty, Dwight King and Trevor Lewis giving Los Angeles a 6-1 cushion.

Milan Lucic, who was traded from the Bruins to the Kings last June, made it 7-1, before Luke Schenn and Dustin Brown added two more after Tyler Randell had struck for the home side.

The Kings finished the game with 57 shots on goal, which was the highest the Bruins had allowed in over 40 years. 

Jaromir Jagr scored his 739th NHL career goal in the Florida Panthers' 7-4 win against the Buffalo Sabres. 

Jagr's second-period goal - his 17th of the season - moved the 43-year-old to within two of Brett Hull on the all-time scoring list. 

Panthers forward Jussi Jokinen finished the game with a goal and two assists, while Reilly Smith (two), Brian Campbell, Alex Petrovic and Brandon Pirri were the other goalscorers. 

The Chicago Blackhawks were the only side out of the 24 in action on Tuesday to not score a goal after they went down 2-0 to the San Jose Sharks.

Filip Forsberg scored twice but could not help the Nashville Predators to victory as they were defeated 5-3 by the Washington Capitals, while a strong second period saw the Vancouver Canucks past the Colorado Avalanche 3-1.

The Montreal Canadiens secured a third-straight victory following a 4-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning and John Klingberg scored with just over two minutes remaining in overtime to give the Dallas Stars a 3-2 victory against the Minnesota Wild.

A shoot-out was required as the Winnipeg Jets saw off the St Louis Blues 2-1, the Philadelphia Flyers suffered a third-consecutive loss after going down 4-1 to the Anaheim Ducks and the Calgary Flames were 4-3 winners over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

In other results, the New York Islanders won 3-2 courtesy of a shoot-out against the Columbus Blue Jackets, while the Edmonton Oilers fell 2-1 to the New Jersey Devils.
