A good bounce-back win for the Kings, probably exactly what Terry Murray had in mind. More importantly, it was a fun night for those of us at the Redondo Beach Cafe, where Jim Fox got the Chicken Noodle Soup named after him and a sizable crowd watched the game. For those in the area who might not have been able to make it by right before the holiday, it’s a great spot for some good food and hockey. The cafe’s menu is great and the service is even better.
On to the game…Anze Kopitar and Patrick O’Sullivan each had one goal and one assist and Jason LaBarbera stopped 22 of 23 shots. The Kings went scoreless on the power play again but also kept the Oilers’ power play off the board. In his return to Edmonton, Jarret Stoll was credited with three shots and four hits.
