LOS ANGELES, Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Rookie goaltender Martin Jones made 24 saves Tuesday and posted his third shutout in the Los Angeles Kings' 3-0 win over Edmonton.

Jones, playing in his sixth game of the season, faced only five shots in the third period while his teammates outshot the Oilers 40-24 in the game.

Dwight King staked Jones and the Kings to a 1-0 lead in the first period. Jordan Nolan provided some breathing room with a goal at 15:22 of the third period, and Dustin Brown tapped in an empty-net score for his 400th career point.

Jones overshadowed a fine performance by Edmonton goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, who allowed two goals despite being peppered by a dozen or more shots in each period.
