Kelly Hrudey makes all 35 saves and was tested on 4 goalie rating draws to earn his first shutout of the season over the Canucks
Keith Crowder and Barry Beck each earn their first goals of the season in the first period to put the Kings up early.  It was all they would need.
Despite having 27 points and sitting in the middle of the NHL, the Canucks have a -20 goal differential, the 3rd-worst in the NHL
Wayne Gretzky scored 2 goals in the third period off an outside shot and another on his own rebound to put the Kings up 6 and chase Kirk McLean from the game
The referees allowed the players to play, as the teams combined for a season-low 4 penalty mintes, coming within a 3 minute span of the second period
