Rank the Players: Kings Finally Break the Ice in Final Minutes

The Kings had chances in bunches down the stretch, but it took one last power play to win it.

Jake Muzzin’s power play goal ended a bunch of frustration for the Los Angeles Kings. Rank the Players!

Anze Kopitar scored first and added an assist on Jordan Nolan’s partial breakaway goal, but that second one only tied it for the Kings, setting up a tough third. A couple posts and a couple crossbars later, the Kings needed to catch a break, and they caught it when Martin Hanzal was whistled for tripping Kopitar. Muzzin tipped in a Jeff Carter shot, and LA survived a familiar wild scramble to earn two points.
