LOS ANGELES -- Tyler Toffoli and Linden Vey spent the first month of the season as highly successful linemates in the minors. Nike Vapormax Wholesale . Now that theyre roommates with the Los Angeles Kings, theyre still making good things happen together. Toffoli had two goals and an assist in his third game back from the minors, and Mike Richards had a goal and two assists in the Los Angeles Kings 5-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night. While Toffoli had the first three-point game of his short Kings career, Vey earned his first NHL point with an early assist in Los Angeles 10th victory in 14 games. "Its good to get the win, especially with the rivalry between the two teams the last couple of years," said Vey, who made his NHL debut Thursday. "It was an intense game. ... I think Tof and I bring a little bit of energy and excitement. Were new to the league, so we have a lot of excitement coming into the game. We just need to keep rolling." Toffoli saw playoff action during Los Angeles run to the Western Conference finals last summer, and he teamed up with Vey on the AHLs Manchester Monarchs last month after failing to make the Kings roster out of training camp. Both were recalled a week ago to fill in for injured veterans Jeff Carter and Jarret Stoll. Although the youngsters are temporary solutions to the Kings injury problems, Toffoli and Vey are making a strong case for more permanent jobs in the near future. "Were pretty good friends, so it makes things a whole lot easier," Toffoli said. "We have each other to hang out, and at the same time, all of the guys have been great helping us out and making us feel really welcome." Richards, Justin Williams and Toffoli scored in a 2:33 span midway through the second period for the Kings, chasing Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo in the process. Jonathan Quick made 25 saves, and Jordan Nolan scored an early goal on Veys pass in a game that turned out to be a showcase for the Kings two rookies. "Its exciting for them, and they bring that enthusiasm into games," said Richards, who has eight points in four games. "They have the confidence to make plays, and theyre both smart passers." Dan Hamhuis scored in the Canucks first game against Los Angeles as division rivals since 1998. Luongo stopped 14 shots before getting pulled after the Kings fourth goal midway through the second period. "I thought in the first two periods we had surges early, but we couldnt score," Vancouver coach John Tortorella said. "Its a 5-1 game and you think you got spanked, but I thought Quick made some really important saves at key times. We had some breakdowns, and its in the back of our net." The Sedin twins were held scoreless for the second straight night on the Canucks four-game trip to each of the reconfigured Pacific Divisions four U.S.-based teams. "We had a few chances in the first period, but Quick played good," Daniel Sedin said. "We didnt play terrible the first two periods, but we have to be better. We made a few mistakes and it cost us. Theyve got a very good team, for sure, and theyre well-coached. But we didnt play our best game." The Kings played without three veteran regulars due to injuries, and left wing Kyle Clifford went down with an undisclosed injury early in the game. Carter sat out his third consecutive game, while Stoll missed his second straight and defenceman Matt Greene was scratched with an undisclosed injury. After a wide-open few minutes in the first period, Nolan put the Kings ahead in a sequence that started when Hamhuis tumbled and lost the puck at Los Angeles blue line. Vey, playing his second NHL game, nimbly deked longtime Kings forward Brad Richardson on the rush before feeding Nolan for his third goal. Toffoli scored late in the period after two exceptional passes by Richards and Drew Doughty, who found the youngster with a cross-ice pass on a wobbling puck. Hamhuis scored in the second period with a long shot after a defensive scramble by the Kings. Richards answered 68 seconds later with a goal in front of Luongo, and the veteran goalies defence left him helpless again when Williams scored 1:46 after that. Eddie Lack replaced Luongo, but the Canucks again abandoned defence and gave up a gaping 2-on-1 break to Toffoli and Richards, who exchanged the puck until Toffoli scored his second goal.

LOUIS - Two-thirds of the St. UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- The New York Islanders were merely content with a lopsided victory. The Phoenix Coyotes were flat-out humiliated. With production from all four lines, the Islanders built a big lead and carried it to a 6-1 win over the Coyotes on Tuesday night. While New York coach Jack Capuano was pleased with his teams performance, he tempered his remarks and didnt heap too much praise on his club. "We got some bounces. Lets not kid ourselves," Capuano said. "The score didnt indicate the way the game was." John Tavares scored his first two goals of the season and defenceman Matt Donovan added the first of his NHL career in a rare meeting between the Islanders and Coyotes.

Evgeni Nabokov was the beneficiary of all the offence and made 33 saves for the win. The 38-year-old goalie has started all three games for the Islanders. Josh Bailey had a goal and two assists, and Michael Grabner had three assists for New York, which was outshot 34-28. Regin added an assist. "It was just a full-team effort," forward Kyle Okposo said. "We talked about the third period. We wanted to come out and play better and not give them anything. I thought we did a pretty good job." Martin Hanzal gave the Coyotes (1-2) a brief spark when his first of the season made it 3-1. Smith stopped only 15 shots and was replaced at the start of the third period by Thomas Greiss, who made his Phoenix debut. Bailey made it 6-1 against Greiss, off assists from Nielsen and Grabner, with 7:41 left. "Its completely unacceptable," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "We have a lot of work to do as a team. We just werent good enough." For the second straight game, the Islanders jumped out to a 2-0 lead and tried to protect it.

This time, the Islanders pushed their edge to 3-0 with their second power-play goal, but the Coyotes responded 43 seconds later with Hanzals goal to cut the deficit back to two. "A two-goal lead at home is something youd love to have every night. It was good to take advantage of that," Tavares said. "We have confidence with the lead. It was nice to get another one and keep playing the way we want to play. "Our third goal was a big goal. On Saturday we didnt get the third goal." New York took control early against the Coyotes. Phoenix defenceman Zbynek Michalek turned over the puck near the blue line, and Regin calmly skated into the left circle, with his head up. He deftly snapped a shot over the shoulder of the 6-foot-4 Smith and into the left corner just 1:49 into the game. "Sometimes you have that feeling-out process at the start of the game, but Peters line did a great job of getting us into it right away," Bailey said. "Having a goal within the first two minutes really boosted the guys, and after that we seemed to respond really well." The Islanders earned the first power play with 6:24 left in the first, and the Coyotes compounded the problem on the ensuing faceoff when Antoine Vermette was whistled for delay of game when he smothered the puck in the circle. Tavares took advantage of the two-man power play when he slam-dunked a cross-crease pass from Nielsen inside the right post. Phoenix managed to kill the remainder of Vermettes penalty, but trailed 2-0 after one period despite a 7-6 edge in shots. Donovan pushed the lead to 3-0 at 11:47 of the second during a power play with a hard shot that Smith smothered. However, the puck trickled behind him and over the line. "The harder you work, the luckier you get," Capuano said. Tavares, the Islanders new captain, notched his second with 5:11 left in the period, and McDonald made it 5-1 just 2:35 later.
