Toffoli double sees off Blues

Tyler Toffoli scored twice as the Los Angeles Kings held on for a 3-2 win over the St Louis Blues.

The rookie scored in the first and second periods to put the Kings three goals ahead after Jarret Stoll had opened the scoring 10:38 into the match.

The Blues launched a late comeback with goals from Kevin Shattenkirk and Vladimir Tarasenko but there was not time for a leveller.

Alex Galchenyuk's tie-breaking goal midway through the third period saw the Montreal Canadiens beat the New Jersey Devils 3-2.

Steve Bernier and Michael Ryder also scored for the Canadiens.

Olli Jokinen scored twice in the Winnipeg Jets' 5-2 win over the New York Rangers and the Minnesota Wild were 2-0 winners against the Philadelphia Flyers.
