The last time the Kings were in a shootout, Jan. 12 against Dallas, coach Marc Crawford admitted he probably should have put Patrick O’Sullivan among the first three shooters. O’Sullivan ended up coming in fourth and saving the day. Crawford made the same mistake today but O’Sullivan once again batted cleanup and beat Pascal Leclaire to give the Kings the victory. Dustin Brown scored in the shootout and Dan Cloutier, making his first start in goal for the Kings this season, stopped the last two Columbus attempts after allowing Rick Nash to put one in. Anze Kopitar scored the Kings’ two regulation goals to give him 24 on the season. Cloutier made 31 saves, including a key stop in the final minute of the third period after Nikolai Zherdev hit one off the skate of Jack Johnson. The Kings are 4-2-1 with one game remaining on this road trip and have gone 9-4-1 over their last 14.
