Backup goaltender Jack Campbell made 42 saves in his second shutout of the season as the Los Angeles Kings beat the Western Conference-leading Calgary Flames 3-0 Monday night.

Jonny Brodzinski and defenseman Derek Forbort scored, and Tyler Toffoli added an empty-net goal for Los Angeles, which won its third straight.

Campbell earned his first win since Feb. 5 for the Kings, who won’t qualify for the postseason.

Flames goaltender Mike Smith made 18 saves.

Calgary (47-22-7) held on to the top spot in the Pacific Division, six points ahead of the San Jose Sharks, who faced Detroit later Monday.

Kings defenseman Drew Doughty was booed whenever he touched the puck at the Saddledome. He told Sportsnet earlier in the day he had “no respect” for Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk. The players have history dating to Tkachuk elbowing Doughty in the head two years ago. Tkachuk served a two-game suspension for the hit.

Doughty and Tkachuk tangled early in the third period, with Doughty taking a slashing penalty.

After a scoreless second period, Kings center Brodzinski beat Smith with a wrist shot from the top of the circle at 11:51 of the third for a 2-0 lead.

Calgary trailed 1-0 after two periods despite outshooting the Kings 31-14.

Los Angeles ended the first period and opened the second with a two-man advantage, but failed to score.

Forbort threaded a soft wrist shot through traffic and beat Smith on the glove side 57 seconds after the opening faceoff.
