Rank the Players: Kings Overwhelm Flames, 2-1
The Flames hung in there, which is the most complimentary thing I can say about them.
The Los Angeles Kings had about 30 shots which were more dangerous than the one from Luke Schenn that got the Kings on the board. They had 0 shots which were more dangerous than the one from Anze Kopitar that won the game, though. Good job!

Yes, in his first game back, Anze Kopitar got the winner. He wasn't the best forward on the ice -- not by a long shot -- but he didn't need to be with the Kings as dominant as they were. Of course, it only resulted in a 2-1 win, but given recent history with Calgary, I'm still pleased with it. Read about how LA managed to not win by five in the recap!
