Thursday night at Staples Center was a really sad night for the Los Angeles Kings in their game against the Minnesota Wild.
Jon Quick was sad for giving up 2 bad goals.
Andrei Loktionov was sad because he's probably going back to the AHL soon.
Matt Greene was sad because he had to be interviewed by Patrick O'Neal.
Dustin Penner was sad because he's actually...
In his 41st game as a Los Angeles King... Dustin Penner finally showed the player we all hoped he was. And then the team went out and **** the bed against the 29th overall team in the NHL.

Hopefully, their confidence will also get a boost and they can continue to build on the positives. Bobby...
