LOS ANGELES (AP) --- Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak scored their 26th goals
of the season, and the Boston Bruins improved to 5-1-0 under interim coach
Bruce Cassidy with a 4-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night.
Anton Khudobin made 27 saves in his second start since Christmas for the
Bruins, who nursed an early lead to their first win in Los Angeles since March
Pastrnak punctuated a strong all-around game with his seventh power-play goal
of the season early in the second period. Dominic Moore ended his 26-game goal
drought with an empty-net score, and David Krejci added another empty-netter
with 7.2 seconds left.
Kevin Gravel scored his first NHL goal and Peter Budaj stopped 21 shots for the
Kings, who have lost six of eight.
