The Reds concluded a 3-3 homestand. Theyre off on Thursday

LOS ANGELES, Calif. Custom Chicago Blackhawks Jersey Black Friday . - Jonathan Quick and Brian Elliott both remembered their similar goaltending duel on the same ice sheet 2 1/2 years ago, when they played 65 scoreless minutes of tense hockey.Quick topped Elliott in a shootout again Thursday night, and the Los Angeles goalie took home a record along with the win.Quick tied the Kings mark with his 32nd career shutout, making 43 saves and stopping all three St. Louis shootout attempts in a 1-0 victory over the Blues.He carried the Kings to their third straight win, making saves with his glove, blocker and mask to keep it scoreless. Los Angeles expects such routine brilliance from a two-time Stanley Cup champion who showed his usual aversion to personal attention after his latest record-tying feat.Its two points, Quick said. Its more about wins than shutouts when we go out there.Jeff Carter scored the only shootout goal for the defending champions against Elliott, who stopped 17 shots in his 26th career shutout for the Blues.Oddly enough, Los Angeles and St. Louis played a 1-0 shootout game at Staples Center three seasons ago. Quick made 35 saves, and Elliott had 37.That doesnt happen often, and its happened twice here, Elliott said. Its kind of the way we match up, I guess. Weve got to take that next step, but when you get 40-plus shots on a good team in their building, you can take a lot of positives away from that. Youre going to win a lot of games if you do that.Quick matched Rogie Vachons franchise record for shutouts, reaching the mark in 50 fewer games than Vachon needed during the 1970s. Quick already became the Kings leader in victories last season on the way to his second Stanley Cup ring.What a game to do it in, the way he played, Los Angeles centre Jarret Stoll said. We all had a hug for him when he came in the room. We all know how great of a goalie he is.Carter scored in the first shootout round, and Quick stopped T.J. Oshie, Alexander Steen and Vladimir Tarasenko to wrap up the Kings fifth straight home win over St. Louis.He played good, but there were some shots that we missed, Oshie said of his U.S. Olympic teammate. The net was wide open in overtime there. Ive got to slide that in. Never even got to touch it.The Blues had the past four days off before opening their road schedule with a three-game West Coast trip, and they controlled long stretches against the Kings with their fresh legs and skill-laden roster.Elliott also was outstanding against a Kings team that had scored 10 goals in its last two games, stopping everything except Carters vicious wrist shot to the stick side.We tried him enough on the glove side, and he was on it, Carter said.The seasons first meeting between the two title contenders featured plenty of tight-checking hockey. Both clubs struggled to create consistent scoring chances, with Kings coach Darryl Sutter shuffling his lines — even breaking up That 70s Line, Carters high-scoring trio with youngsters Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli.Just trying to get some energy, a little bit different look, Sutter said.Quicks mask was dislodged and Steen lost his helmet during a prolonged scuffle midway through the second period when Steen hacked at the puck in Quicks midsection.Elliott broke his stick on a poke-check during a Kings power play midway through the third period, but played more than two minutes using defenceman Jay Bouwmeesters stick when the Blues couldnt control the puck.Shortly after Quick made a spectacular glove save on a short-range shot by Bouwmeester in the waning minutes of regulation, he stopped a shot by David Backes with his head.Those few chances in tight, got to find a way to put those past Jonathan Quick, said Backes, another American Olympian. Hes an all-world goalie, no question, but weve got all-world players in here. Got to find a way to put some of those in, myself included.NOTES: Los Angeles F Marian Gaborik missed his second straight game with a lower-body injury, and Andy Andreoff played in his second NHL game. ... Kings D Jake Muzzin still hasnt played this season while recovering from an upper-body injury, although he got a $20 million contract extension Wednesday. ... St. Louis road trip continues this weekend at Arizona and Anaheim. Dominic Moore Jersey Black Friday . -- Brendan Steele shot an 8-under 62 in the morning session to take a one-stroke lead after the first round of the Travelers Championship. NHL Jerseys Cyber Monday Deals . Making his first start since helping the U.S. win the Presidents Cup, the 2012 U.S. Open champion shot an 8-under 63 to reach 15 under. He had nine birdies and a bogey -- on the par-5 16th in his opening nine.CINCINNATI, Ohio -- That playoff loss in Pittsburgh last year? Johnny Cueto never thought about it much. So getting a chance to shut out the Pirates in a rematch wasnt any more special. Not to him, anyway. Cueto pitched his third career shutout against the team that beat him in the NL wild card game, and Joey Votto hit a two-run homer that led the Cincinnati Reds over the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-0 Wednesday for their first winning series this season. Cueto (1-2) had his way with the lineup that beat him 6-2 at PNC Park in the playoffs. He limited the Pirates to three hits, didnt walk a batter and struck out a career-high 12 during his first shutout since 2011. Any extra satisfaction given what happened the last time he faced them? "I never think too much about those things," Cueto said, with assistant trainer Tomas Vera interpreting. "That was 2013." And Cueto is starting to look more like a vintage ace. He started only 11 games last season because of strained muscles by his pitching shoulder. The right-hander has been solid this season but hasnt gotten much help from an offence that scored only one run while he was on the mound during his first three starts. Cueto didnt need much help on Wednesday, putting the Pirates away with 107 pitches. "Welcome back, Johnny Cueto," manager Bryan Price said. "Hes been great his first three starts, and he was dominant today. It was nice to win our first series. Pittsburgh is a handful." Several Pirates questioned called third strikes by Quinn Wolcott, a Triple-A umpire called up to the majors. Eight of Cuetos strikeouts were called. Maybe it didnt mean anything extra to Cueto, but his teammates got some satisfaction from beating the Pirates. "For us to come together the way we have, especially against the team that beat us in the playoffs, its a lot of fun," third baseman Todd Frazier said. After the NL Central rivals combined for 13 homers while splitting the first two games, Votto supplied the one that broke open the deciding game. Left-hander Francisco Liriano (0-3) opened the game by walking Billy Hamilton, wwho stole second base and came around on two wild pitches. Devan Dubnyk Jersey Black Friday. That was it for scoring until the seventh inning, when Cueto singled and Votto hit his fourth homer in six games. Brayan Pena doubled home a run in the eighth. Liriano and Cueto also were matched in the wild card game last season. Liriano got the better of that one, going seven innings for the victory while Cueto failed to make it through the fourth. Liriano had trouble at the outset on Wednesday. Ten of his first 13 pitches were balls. He walked Hamilton and Votto opening the inning, then threw the two wild pitches that let in the run. The Ohio River rivals had a bruising series last season, with 28 batters hit overall -- the most for any series in the majors. Its been mostly pain-free so far, with only two batters hit during the series. Pirates left fielder Jose Tabata left the game in the fifth inning with what appeared to be a mild concussion after he slammed into the outfield wall while catching Penas fly ball. Tabata fell, held up his glove to show hed caught the ball and sat on the warning track for several minutes. A trainer examined Tabatas neck, jaw and head, and he was helped off the field. "You talk about laying out and making a catch and hitting the wall hard," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "I was just glad he was able to walk off. Well see how it feels tomorrow."
