Kings lose 3-2 in OT

Alexander Frolov made a bad turnover at the offensive blue line, Mike Richards took the puck and passed it inside to a charging Scott Hartnell. Hartnell was tangled up Lubomir Visnovsky and couldn’t get his stick on the puck but it went off his skate and in as he tried to slide to a stop in front of the net with 28.5 seconds left in OT. The officials reviewed it and ruled there was no intentional kick. Unfortunate ending. The Kings were really dominated by Philadelphia in OT, but you have to feel good about their chances if they can get to a shootout.

Anze Kopitar scored his 20th goal of the season, tying his rookie output. Matt Moulson scored his fourth goal, and first since being called back up three games ago. Brian Willsie did play after missing five games with a sore back, so that could mean that Teddy Purcell won’t rejoin the team for a while. Maybe he’ll be brought up at the end of the trip if Dustin Brown is going to take off two games to be with his wife for the birth of their first child.
