Marner gave Toronto a 4-0 lead with his 11th goal of the season, scoring on a slap shot after a Los Angeles turnover inside its blue line.
“It’s a nice clap bomb he has there,” Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews said. “I didn’t know he could shoot the puck like that.”
Marner became the 10th player in the past 35 years to string together a streak of 21 or more games. He has 10 goals and 16 assists during the run.
“Thank you, video coaches,” Samsonov said.
Toronto has won seven of eight to improve to 17-5-6.
Los Angeles dropped to 14-11-4 with its seventh loss in 10 games. Kings goalie Jonathan Quick made 36 saves.
Kings: At Montreal on Saturday night.
