Anze Kopitar had three assists and the Los Angeles Kings used a three-goal third period to break open a 2-2 tie and down the Anaheim Ducks 5-2. Slava Voynov, Jake Muzzin and Jeff Carter all scored in third to send the Ducks to just their third regulation loss this season (13-3-1).
Anaheim goaltender Victor Fasth lost his first start in regulation this season and the Ducks blew a pair of one-goal leads in the second period. Anaheim’s goals came from Saku Koivu and Andrew Cogliano.
SPIN: Watch out West, here come the Kings. It looks like the champs are putting it together and could be taking advantage of this big run of home games. I’m warming up more and more to getting them in my lineup and might be considering some trade offers to take advantage of this. The Ducks lost on some bad bounces like a shot hitting the crossbar and dropping down before bouncing into the goal. I’m not worried about the Ducks at all would continue to deploy them at will.
Toronto doubled up Philadelphia 4-2 ...
BEST OF MAXIM
from Jon Rosen of LAKingsInsider,
As it stands now – and a primary assist to CapGeek on this – the Kings have 49.26 million dollars allotted towards 13 players for the 2013-14 season. Because the salary cap drops to 64.3 million dollars next season – and there’s certainly a chance that will happen – unless players currently under contract for next season are traded...
Moves like this haunt goalkeepers.
Jimmy Howard was holding his own against the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday night, with the game knotted at 1-1 late in the third period. When the Kings moved the puck around his end of the ice, Howard slid into perfect positioning in the net, spreading his legs and hunching over, with as good a chance as any to stop a score.
But Anze Kopitar was...
Winger Simon Gagne has been traded from the Kings to the Philadelphia Flyers for whom he played for from 1999 to 2010.
Simon Gagne helped the Kings win a cup.
But he's not as big as Nolan or King or Penner and he's been a healthy scratch.
So the Kings traded him to a team they like to make trades with and a place he's familiar with.
The Kings get a conditional 4th round pick and could it be that Tyler Toffoli gets called up?
The Kings have made 3 trades in the past 3 weeks...
LOS ANGELES -- Not so Fasth.
The Kings became the first team to smudge the previously unblemished record of Ducks goalie, newcomer Viktor Fasth, who had recorded eight victories in his first eight NHL starts.
It may have been only the 17th game of this lockout-shortened season for both teams, but the Kings' 5-2 victory against the Ducks on Monday night at Staples Center had...
BREAKING NEWSTags: Los Angeles KingsSimon GagneIn an unexpected move for anyone that doesn’t understand how the Philadelphia Flyers organization operates, general manager Paul Holmgren has traded a conditional fourth round pick to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for fan favorite Simon Gagne.
Gagne was dealt in the 2010 offseason to the Tampa Bay Lightning as part...
They say you should just throw the puck at the net, and this goal by Detroit Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey is exactly why. His shot went of Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Bernier’s glove, bounced straight up in the air, hit off his head/back and bounced it. Rob Scuderi tried to knock it out of the air but completely whiffed. Bernier had no idea where the puck was and...
The Philadelphia Flyers have agreed to send a fourth-round draft pick to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for forward Simon Gagne.
That's right. The same Gagne that was drafted by the Flyers with the twenty-second-overall pick in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft will be returning to play in Philadelphia.
In his thirteen-year-NHL career, Gagne had recorded 586 points (283 goal; 303 assists...

Anze Kopitar scored the tiebreaking goal on a slick pass from Dwight King with 4:48 to play, and the Los Angeles Kings rallied from a third-period deficit for their fifth straight victory, 2-1 over the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night.
Jonathan Bernier made 32 saves for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who tied it with 9:34 left on Jeff Carter's goal during a two-man...
Man, the Ottawa Senators are the best at impersonating The Walking Dead. Outside of Anze Kopitar's lovely zombie-like exterior, the Senators are in the running for "Oft Injured NHL Team" this season. It's surprising, given how many people they have on the IR right now, that they're playing as well as they are. Since the Erik Karlsson injury at the hands of Matt...
