So Anze Kopitar had four assists, and that's like the 5th-most memorable thing about this win. Show us what you thought of the team!
Here are some quick stats from tonight's game, which featured plenty of noteworthy accomplishments.
- So yeah, Kopitar's four assists. That's the third time he's done that, and the other two also took place in December (12/6/07 vs. Buffalo, 12/18/14 vs. St. Louis). The only goal he didn't assist on was...
- Derek Forbort's first career NHL goal! Forbort earned himself a postgame interview with this seeing-eye, nicely deflected shot. He's not sure if the puck was saved; hopefully someone grabbed it for him.
- Jonathan Quick earned his 40th career shutout, tying him with John Vanbiesbrouck and Frank Brimsek for the most all-time by an American-born goalie. He's got an outside shot at breaking that particular record.
- Tyler Toffoli earned his second career hat trick; his first came last season against Calgary.
- Brayden McNabb equaled a career high with his second goal of the season.
- Jordan Weal played 11:58, which is more than three minutes more than his previous NHL high.
- Despite five team goals, only eight Kings had points. That's what happens when Toffoli and Kopitar hog the spotlight AS USUAL.
