Postgame/Rank the Players: Kings Fizzle Out on Fight Night

New, comments

All that effort catches up with the Kings in the third.

The more I think about it, the less surprising that third period was...

LA-CBJ Shots

What did you think of each player on the Los Angeles Kings tonight? Give a thumbs up to any player who you thought did well, and a thumbs down to any player you thought had a rough game. (If you're not sure or if you thought a player was "eh", you can simply skip them.) The players will get ranked based on your votes. GO!

Best Kings of All Time

Bright sides, around the Jackets scoring and everyone fighting:

  • Anze Kopitar finally got an assist! His career-long skid is over.
  • The Kings tied a franchise record by not allowing a single shot on goal in the second period. (Hilariously, they're 0-3 in games when they do that.)
  • Darryl Sutter was pretty realistic about the final period letdown, attributing it largely to the 3-games-in-4-nights run. He certainly isn't going to overreact to anything.
  • Jeff Carter continues to make LA's goalscoring a two-headed monster as opposed to a one-headed monster.
  • Jordan Weal didn't have to try fighting anyone.
  • Lots of dogs during Kings Weekly.
