Postgame notes (1/17)

— The Kings dropped to 0-3-1 in their last four and 2-0-1 against the Stars this season.

— Jack Johnson returned after missing 41 games. He played 20 minutes, 14 seconds, had a minus-1 rating and one minor penalty. He was credited with five hits and two shots on goal, not including the one he took during the shootout.

— Drew Doughty also made a surprise return and played a massive 27:06. He had a plus-2 rating.

— Alexander Frolov recorded his 300th career point when he tied the game with 16.9 seconds reamaining in regulation.

— Erik Ersberg made 32 saves as the Kings were outshot 34-22.

— The Kings went 0-for-4 on the power play and are now 0-for-16 with the man advantage in their last four games.

— The three most-regular lines today seemed to be Frolov-Kopitar-Simmonds, Calder-Stoll-Brown and O’Sullivan-Handzus-Purcell. The Kings dressed seven defensemen, and those pairings were all over the place.
