Kings 5, Stars 3 - (Belated) Post-Game Bullets

[I meant to get this out earlier, but real life kept intervening. I wish I could say I was working feverishly on some long-winded post to make the wait worth it...]

  • Jonathan Quick's shut-out streak ended at 202 minutes. That will be hard to top. 
  • Viatcheslav Voynov had two goals and one assist, including the game-winner. Terry Murray was effusive in his praise of Voynov (see Hammond, like you haven't already) and declared him "an NHL player." 
  • Voynov was on the ice for one goal-against in his five games. 
  • Patrick O`Sullivan is 24th in the league in GF/60, at 1.91. That's higher than any Kings player.
  • Who leads the Kings? Scott Parse, at 1.72, which is how his single goal translates per 60 minutes of ice time. 
  • Who led the Kings last year? Pretty sure it was Scott Parse, in his five games. [looking it up...] Nope, it was Andrei Loktionov, with 1.06, followed by Parse, with 1.00. 
  • What about the year before that? It was Parse, with 1.07. 
  • Jack Johnson leads all Kings in plus-minus/60 at 2.26, followed by Anze Kopitar at 2.20 and Voynov at 2.16. 
  • The bottom of the list is Matt Greene, Alec Martinez and Kevin Westgarth
  • Among players with 5 or more games-played, four players have been on the ice for only one goal-against: Dustin Penner, Ethan Moreau, Jarret Stoll, and Voynov.
  • Those same four lead the team in GAON/60. 
  • Mike Richards is still batting 1.000: when he gets a point, the Kings win. When he doesn't, they don't. 
  • Kopitar (12) is 6th in the league in points, four behind Phil Kessel
  • Richards and Kopitar (both with 8) are tied for 4th in assists, two behind Marc-Andre Bergeron.
  • Johnson is 7th in the league and 1st on the Kings in plus-minus, at +6, three behind Matt D`Agostini.
  • 149, 146, 115, 52 -- that's the number of face-offs taken by Kopitar, Richards, Stoll and Trevor Lewis, in that order. 
  • Face-off wins: Kopitar 53%, Richards 45.9%, Stoll 52.2%, Lewis 42.2%.
  • Justin Williams leads the team in shots, with 28.
  • Greene and Moreau lead the team in hits, with 26.
  • By win-percentage, the Kings are tops in the west and 3rd in the league, at .722. Ahead of them are the Penguins and Caps. The Kings are tied with the Leafs. 
  • Kings are second in the league in GAA, at 1.67. Edmonton, at 1.40, is first. 
  • Kings are 17th in the league in GPG, at 2.44. 
  • Kings rank 6th on the power-play and 9th on the PK.
  • SV% leaders for goalies with more than 5 games: Nikolai Khabibulin, .964; Quick, .962.
  • GAA leaders? Same two guys, in the same order: Khabibulin, 0.97; Quick, 1.12.
  • Oh, and last night was another win in which the Kings were out-shot. Their record when out-shot climbs to 5-0-1.
  • Drew Doughty will play tomorrow, apparently. And Voynov will be returned to Manchester. But not for long?
