Rank the Kings: LA Lands One Final Shot Against Calgary

Jeff Carter wins it after Kris Versteeg's late goal keeps division hope alive.

Candice Ward-USA TODAY Sports

In the span of five minutes, the Los Angeles Kings went from making Shark-related plans to skating off the ice with a 5-4 win over the Calgary Flames. Rank the boys!

With LA skating a lineup they had never skated before, Kris Versteeg scored perhaps the most pivotal goal of the season. A loss would have potentially put the Kings three points back with two games to go, and would have all but ensured a first-round matchup with San Jose. Instead, the stage was set for Jeff Carter to finish off a season sweep of the Flames in OT. I'll let Nick tell you about it in the recap, coming up shortly.
