Jonathan Quick stopped 25 shots but the low-scoring Kings lost for the sixth time in their last seven games at Staples Center, undoing much of the good feeling from a strong start under new coach John Stevens.

Outshot for the 15th time this season, the Jets had a couple of glaring defensive gaffes, including an ill-advised pinch by Jacob Trouba that gave the Kings a two-on-one break that was snuffed out by Mason. Center Trevor Lewis has scored goals in consecutive games while center Anze Kopitar - who leads the Kings with nine goals, 14 assists and 23 points - is pointless in his past two games following a 10-game point streak.

Up 2-0, the Jets were guilty of three offensive-zone stick infractions in the third period and L.A. converted on one of their power-play chances.

Second Period_2, Winnipeg, Laine 11 (Perreault, Ehlers), 19:01 (pp).

Power-play opportunities_Winnipeg 1 of 4; Los Angeles 1 of 5. Now 2-3-1 this season, he denied the Kings on several quality scoring chances in the first period, a harbinger of things to come in the second and third period when he was almost unbeatable.

Jets centre Adam Lowry opened the scoring with just eight seconds left in the first period, while Patrik Laine beefed up the lead on a power-play goal with only 59 seconds left in the second.

Third Period_3, Los Angeles, Toffoli 10 (Kopitar, Fantenberg), 5:26 (pp). Campbell, the former 11th overall draft pick by Dallas, has played only two career National Hockey League games, but he led the AHL in victories last season for the Kings' affiliate in Ontario, where he has also spent this season. The Jets play a rare mid-week afternoon game Friday - the day after American Thanksgiving - against the Anaheim Ducks and then return to the ice Saturday night against the San Jose Sharks.
