Good luck with tonight’s rankings! Every forward was on the ice for a goal, Peter Budaj got a shutout, Muzzin/Martinez were on the ice for all four goals, and the rest of the blue line did fine work in their own end.

(I suppose you could just vote thumbs up on everyone, but I won’t sway you.)

Stick around for the recap to see how, after a somewhat fluky Nick Shore goal opened the scoring, the Kings’s offense unleashed a week’s worth of frustration in the third period.
