COLUMBUS, O. — The Los Angeles Kings on paper would appear to be one of the best teams in the National Hockey League.

At times they seem unbeatable. Other times they play inconsistent hockey, can’t string together two victories.

Just when people count them out as done for a season, the Kings emerge into the playoffs and a serious Stanley Cup contender. Proof, they have won two of the last three Cups.

Tuesday night, the Blue Jackets learned that the Kings came to play and would not be denied a win.

LA’s top line of Dwight King, Jeff Carter and Tyler Toffoli all scored goals en route to a 4-3 win before a crowd of 14,703 at Nationwide Arena. That line shot the puck a total of 10 times.

The Blue Jackets led briefly 1-0 on a goal by Jack Skille at 1:40 of the first period.

But the Kings had an answer everytime the Jackets got close on the scoreboard.

One bright spot in the game for Columbus was LW Scott Hartnell played in his 1,000th career NHL game. Only 27 current active players and 297 overall have ever achieved this honor in the game’s history. It was only fitting that Hartnell scored a goal in the contest.

Also scoring in the game were LA’s Dustin Brown and the CBJ’s David Savard.

* Columbus fall to 3-4-3 on the season, dropping out of the top half of the Eastern Conference, while Vancouver improve to 4-2-4. The Whitecaps have 16 points and the Crew are still stuck on 12 points.

* The Crew have now played 321 minutes without tallying a goal, and their last goal from the run of play came from Hector Jimenez’s late-game heroics against D.C. United on April 19.

* The Men of the Match were: Midfielder Matias Laba and Forward Erik Hurtado for Vancouver. Goalkeeper Steve Clark was the lone star for Columbus.

The road win stretches Vancouver’s unbeaten streak to four, while Columbus remains winless in their last seven MLS matches. the Vancouver Whitecaps won their second straight match, handing the Columbus Crew its third straight loss of the week.

What is surprising to everyone, fans and media, Crew head coach Gregg Berhalter named the same starting 11 as he did in Week 1. It was expected that things would be shaken up for the team’s struggling offense.

The Whitecaps scored the game’s lone goal in the 37th minute on a strike by Erik Hurtado. The Vancouver forward controlled a long free kick from his goalkeeper David Ousted from the opposite half of the field, turned left into space and unleashed a perfectly placed drive that Clark had no chance to save. That was Hurtado’s first MLS goal. and Ousted got a rare assists as a goalkeeper.

Value City Arena (Columbus, Ohio)

Attendance: 14, 832

Thad Matta, Ohio State head coach

On the play of the bench

“It started with Trey [McDonald], who came off the bench and did what he
needed to do: play great post defense and provide great energy. All of
those guys played very well and very cohesively.”

On the key to LaQuinton Ross becoming a consistent contributor

“He needs to focus on all of the little aspects of the game, and to his
credit he has done that recently and been very tuned-in in practice and in
games. He is playing his best basketball.”

On multiple scoring options

“The best teams I’ve coached are the ones that have multiple scoring
options. The ’07 team was a great example of that. Night-to-night, you
never knew who would lead you in scoring.”

Deshaun Thomas, junior forward

On four different players scoring double figures

“We passed the ball really well and different guys stepped up to hit shots.”

On excitement over his assist to Aaron Craft

“It is really just me becoming a better player and learning to become more
of an impact player without always shooting. I trust these guys to make
shots so I make the extra pass. It starts in practice and carries over to
the games.”

Lenzelle Smith Jr., junior guard

On defensive intensity

“Coach Matta wants good defense to be the identity of this team so we do a
lot of defensive drills in practice. Right now as a team we’re playing
together well on the defensive end of the floor.”

On rotation of players

“We are all going to be in foul trouble at some point during the season so
it is important to rotate guys in and let them get confidence early in the
season. When we have a lot of guys with confidence we are a scary team.”

Dan Monson, Long Beach State head coach

On his team’s performance

“It’s a work in progress and we’ve got a long way to go. Ohio State is a
very good basketball team. I was happy with how hard we fought, but you’re
not going to play well until you consistently have the same effort that we
had in the first half. The second half was a huge disappointment.”

On Ohio State’s defense

“Defensively they just got into us and frustrated us. [Aaron] Craft is as
good of an on-ball defender as anyone in the country. Mike [Caffey] is
going to be a good point guard for us, but you have to give all the credit
to Aaron.”

On his team’s challenging non-conference schedule

“You have to put kids in adverse situations to see how they react. It’s
hard but they need to figure it out. We try to embrace that. We’re trying
to get mentally tougher and this team has got to grow up a little bit.”
