Recap: Phoenix vs. Los Angeles

Glendale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Thomas Greiss made 30 saves for his second shutout of the season in the Phoenix Coyotes' 3-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson had two goals for the Coyotes, who started a five-game homestand on Tuesday.

"We played really hard, physical," Greiss said. "We didn't give them much. It should give us confidence for the future."

Jonathan Quick stopped 26-of-29 shots for the Kings, who have lost six of their last seven.

"I think tonight Phoenix did a really good job," LA forward Dustin Brown admitted. "I don't know how many shots we had but I don't know how many really good chances we actually had and that's probably a bit of them playing really well and us not being hungry enough to get to the dirty areas."

Ekman-Larsson opened the scoring at 15:57 of the first period when his shot from the point got past Quick.

Greiss made 13 saves in the first to preserve Phoenix's one-goal edge.

The Coyotes took a 2-0 lead on Ekman-Larsson's power-play goal at the 3:16 mark of the middle stanza. His slap shot from the top of the right circle beat Quick.

Antoine Vermette, who also had an assist, put home a rebound at 8:47 of the third period. He extended his points streak to five games.
