Rank the Players: LA Flatlines in Third Against Winnipeg

Frustrated by Ondrej Pavelec, LA resorts to not testing him instead.

Ray Peters-USA TODAY Sports

Isn't it cruel that the Kings have to get on a plane immediately after losing to the Jets? Has anyone ever considered this?

Eh, rank the players below.

The Kings did some good things -- some very good things -- for two periods, and probably should have held the lead after two periods. Ondrej Pavelec performed way above expectations, though, and LA then started the third by falling behind. But before I could copy/paste Tuesday's game summary about painful, undeserved losses, a funny thing happened: the Kings went flat. Instead of the third period push we're accustomed to seeing, LA got just five shots in the third, and none in the final twelve minutes. So yeah, maybe LA didn't earn those two points after all.

More in the recap, including Anze Kopitar starting a new point streak! That's good, right?
