TORONTO -- Peter Budaj is still filling in nicely for Jonathan Quick, and the Los Angeles Kings gave him plenty of help Tuesday night.Jeff Carter scored twice during a four-goal second period, Budaj made 19 saves and Los Angeles thumped the Toronto Maple Leafs 7-0.Budaj hasnt allowed a goal in 150:32 and has a 1.86 goals-against average while filling in for Quick, out with a lower-body injury since the opening game of the season.Im glad Im getting into the game rhythm a little bit, Budaj told Im seeing the puck really well right now and I just have to continue working hard and try to help the team.Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli added goals in the second period and Dustin Brown, Kyle Clifford and Dwight King also scored. Los Angeles has won three straight.Toronto goalie Frederik Andersen allowed four goals on 26 shots, and then Jhonas Enroth came on and made 14 saves.The Leafs had won three straight.As optimistic as everything appears one day and you win three in a row, then you get your lunch fed to you and youre not competitive and not organized and not prepared, coach Mike Babcock said. It was a humbling experience for our players and myself here in our building.One of the younger teams in the league, the Leafs were ultimately schooled by a more veteran opponent, one thats captured the Stanley Cup twice in the past five seasons.They taught us a lesson tonight, Toronto forward Nazem Kadri said.The Kings had the bulk of the chances in the first period, scoring with 6:04 left in the period on Browns second this year. Third-line center Nic Dowd did the dirty work, controlling the puck down low before finding Brown atop the left faceoff circle.His shot through a maze of moving bodies beat Andersen, who entered the evening with a .944 save percentage in his previous five starts. The Leafs had a chance to get the puck out initially but Martin Marincins exit feed never quite reaching Ben Smith along the wall.The Leafs came up with a couple decent chances early in the second. James van Riemsdyk was stopped by Budajs blocker while efforts from the all-rookie line of Auston Matthews, William Nylander and Zach Hyman were also shut down.Matthews, who had 10 points in his first six NHL games, has only one point in his last seven.Following that initial push from the Leafs, the Kings got two goals in less than two minutes, one from Pearson and another from Toffoli.After the Leafs failed to come up with a puck in the neutral zone, Anze Kopitar scooped it up and found Pearson, who easily beat Andersen. Almost two minutes later, Toffoli finished off an odd-man rush for the 3-0 lead.Carter added two more goals for the Kings less than five minutes apart. The first again came after the visitors march easily into the Toronto zone, and Carters shot and goal ending Andersens night.Carter banked his second of the game and fifth this season off Enroth from behind the Leafs goal.Game notes The Kings added third period goals by Clifford and Lewis. Derek Forbort had a career-high three assists. ... The Leafs were outshot 43-19 overall. Tuesday marked just their second loss in six games at home (4-2-0).UP NEXTKings: Play at Montreal on Thursday night.Maple Leafs: Host Philadelphia on Friday night. Asics Kinsei 6 Pas Cher . Nigeria beat surprise package Ethiopia 2-0 in the second leg of their playoff for a comfortable 4-1 aggregate victory. Victor Moses converted a 20th-minute penalty after an Ethiopian handball, and Victor Obinna made certain of Nigerias place in Brazil with his powerful free kick in the 82nd at UJ Esuene Stadium. Asics Gel Lyte 5 Beige . LUCIE, Fla. . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Jaune . After a first half in which he thought "the lid was on the basket," the Toronto Raptors coach watched his squad mount a second half surge to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 98-91. Asics Gel Quantum 360 Noir . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap. When JP Duminy first travelled to Australia in 2008 he was, by his own admission, just a kid. There were few expectations on him - he only had an outside chance of playing in the three-Test series - until he exceeded all of them. Thats when he began to understand how severely responsibility could rest on his shoulders. With that, came intense pressure to perform.The difference [from then] is that I was a young kid, playing my debut Test against guys like Ricky Ponting and Matthew Hayden. It was quite intimidating, Duminy said on the eve of South Africas first tour game under lights in Australia. Now I am more established than I was then. I am coming into a Test series with a little bit more confidence and a little more stability in my role in the team and how I play Test cricket.To say Duminy has under-performed in the eight years since his debut is neither cruel nor critical. The numbers back it up.To date, he has played only 36 Tests, added only three more centuries, and has an average of 32.44. He spent a period out of the side with injury - sustained when he returned to Australia in 2012 - but was also dropped twice. The current sentiment in South Africa is that he is a placeholder until someone more capable comes along.Australia could be the place for Duminy to prove he can fulfill the potential he once showed. In the absence of AB de Villiers, South Africa need senior batsmen to step up. In the context of Duminys own career, he needs to step up. He has gone 11 matches without a century since the Galle Test in July 2014, when he got an unbeaten 100 at No. 8.Though his opportunities are sometimes limited by a heavyweight top-order, he also went 11 innings in 2015 without passing 35 and was dumped for the Newlands Test against England last summer.Duminys response was to score a double-hundred in a franchise match and force a return, but it was only when he struck an unbeaten 88 against New Zealand in South Africas last Test that he was reconsidered. Faf du Plessis, South Africas stand-in captain because AB de Villiers is injureed, went as far as to say that Duminys best was yet to come.dddddddddddd Some remain skeptical because Duminy has often threatened without following through, and with an in-form Rilee Rossouw in the squad, an immediate replacement is available if Duminy bombs.Thats why, for Duminy, the lead-up to this series is more important than most and he said he could not have asked for better. Its the best preparation weve had on any tour, to be honest. I cant recall this amount of time before a Test match on any tour, he said. Weve got 10 to 14 days of training leading up to the first Test. South Africa arrived in Adelaide on Tuesday, 16 days before they take on Australia in Perth. They have two practice matches before the first Test - including a day-night game - and one between the second and third Tests. Their preparation is focused on the pink ball and playing under lights because this trip will be their first encounter with day-night Test cricket. Duminy said they will need some time to adapt to that difference in colour and in light, which will take a few training sessions.The concerns for South African fans may be that with all the emphasis on Test cricket under lights, the team could forget that the first two matches will be played in normal conditions and if they dont compete in those, the outcome of the day-night game could be redundant. Duminy allayed such fears, stressing South Africa were using the ample time they had to do as much as they can to win a third successive series in Australia.We are concentrating on staying in our bubble, he said. We are coming into this series with a bit of confidence on the back of our one-day series but we understand that its a clean slate. This is Test cricket. We are not looking at what the expectations are. We are looking to concentrate on our preparations. There might be a lot of banter being thrown around in the media but thats not something we want to focus on.
