Rank the Players: Kings Break Through With Four in the Third

LA gets a crucial 4-1 win in Jonathan Quick’s first game back.

More stunning: Jonathan Quick stopping 32 of 33 after missing four and a half months, or the Los Angeles Kings scoring four goals in the third period?

Yeah, definitely that second one. RANK THE PLAYERS!

The Kings moved to 3-23-1 when trailing after two periods, and it might legitimately have been a season-saving period. LA is four points out with a game in hand, and heading into a back-to-back set they now know they can use two goalies! Because Quick looked 100% tonight, and hey, so did the offense down the stretch!

And no matter what Ryan Kesler tells you, LA earned this one in the third period.
