LOS ANGELES — With plenty of room service menus and baggage claim tickets in their future, the Kings beat the New York Rangers 3-1 in the comfortable confines of Staples Center on Tuesday night.

Six consecutive away games await them, the beginning of a stretch in which they will play 20 of their next 28 on the road.

“Do you have to remind me?” asked Kings coach Todd McLellan, whose team has an NHL-worst two road victories. “Tonight we’ll enjoy the home win; we’ll worry about the road tomorrow.”

Right wing Tyler Toffoli had a goal and an assist, right wing Dustin Brown also scored, and left wing Adrian Kempe added an empty-net marker. Defenseman Matt Roy chipped in two assists for the first multi-point game of his career, and Jonathan Quick saved 29 of 30 shots for the Kings, who ended a four-game losing streak.

Left wing Artemi Panarin scored the Rangers’ only goal in the final minute, and Henrik Lundqvist turned away 23 of 25 attempts on net, but the Rangers had their season-high three-game road winning streak snapped.

Goals late in each period gave the Kings a lead at both intermissions. They closed the game with a sound closing stanza. The Kings are now 8-0-0 when leading after two periods this season.

“Down the stretch, we really played well. We checked and did the things we needed to do to shut down a pretty good offensive team,” McLellan said.

The Rangers’ lone goal came with 30 seconds left when they finally broke through during a 6-on-4 power-play sequence with Lundqvist pulled. Left wing Chris Kreider made a smooth pass in tight to Panarin, who popped the puck past Quick from close range.

The Kings doubled their lead on a gritty effort in front of the net by Toffoli with 6:38 left in the second period. Roy’s slap shot got behind Lundqvist. After the puck bounced off Lundqvist’s back, Toffoli got inside position on defenseman Ryan Lindgren and dove to the ice to sweep the rebound in off his backhand.

“I know that I need to play better, but I stepped up tonight,” said Toffoli, who now has 15 points this season, nine by way of his four multi-point outings, including Tuesday’s.

Direct plays with pucks going to the goal crease accompanied by bodies have served the Kings well, accounting for much of their otherwise limited offense this season.

“If you look at it, teams that we’ve won against, we’ve played that exact way where we were getting pucks to the net and everybody’s going to the net,” right wing Austin Wagner said.

Wagner fought in the game. So did defenseman Kurtis MacDermid, who won decisively with a series of heavy right-handed punches to the face of the Rangers’ Brendan Smith

Before the five-minute mark of the middle frame, there was a seesaw sequence where Quick denied right wing Kaapo Kakko from point-blank range with a lunging save, center Anze Kopitar cleared the rebound away from Panarin and then the Kings captain ended up with a partial breakaway.

Soon after, the Kings were on the power play, dinging the post at one end and then giving up two short-handed chances at the other. Neither team connected and the score remained 1-0 in favor of the Kings.

After weathering an early barrage of Rangers shot, the Kings opened the scoring with 10 seconds left in the first period.

Toffoli sent the puck through the crease and wide of Lundqvist. Brown was on the opposite side waiting to swipe it into the net. It was the former captain’s seventh goal of the season and his first in the last seven games.
