Toronto, ON ( – Joffrey Lupul notched the lone goal of the

glove of Jonathan Quick to lead off the shootout. Anze Kopitar, Los Angeles’
final shooter, tried to go up high, but James Reimer got a piece of the shot
with his glove to seal the win.

Mike Santorelli and Cody Franson each finished with a goal and an assist and

straight game.
