For the most part, the Kings appeared to skate as follows…
— The Kings are back on a two-game winning streak after losing their previous four games and going 2-7-2 in their previous 11 games.
— The Kings went 4-0 against the Wild this season (one of the victories was in a shootout) and outscored Minnesota 14-7 in the season series.
— Kyle Quincey had the Kings’ first goal and assisted on Teddy Purcell’s eventual game-winning goal in the third period. Quincey now has a three-game point streak and one goal and three assists in his last four games.
— Teddy Purcell scored to put the Kings up 4-2 in the second period, and that was the eventual game-winner. After going without a point in the first three games after his call-up from the AHL, Purcell now has points in four consecutive games (two goals, two assists), a career best.
— Jonathan Quick stopped 21 of 24 shots for the victory. Quick has now won consecutive decisions for the first time since his four-game winning streak from Feb. 3-10, even though he has allowed a combined 12 goals in his last three starts.
— Kyle Calder scored a first-period goal. Calder had gone 14 consecutive games without a goal, and had two assists during that stretch.
— Anze Kopitar scored a second-period goal. Kopitar has scored a goal in four consecutive games (a career best) and also has three assists in his last four games. Kopitar and Quincey tied for the team high with six shots on goal.
— Jack Johnson had one assist and returned to the power play, with 1 minute, 5 seconds, of power-play time. Johnson has three points (one goal, two assists) in his last four games.
— Michal Handzus had one assist, after his hat trick Thursday against Dallas. Handzus now has three goals and three assists in his last five games.
— Matt Greene had one assist. Greene had one point (an assist) in his previous eight games.
— Alexander Frolov had one assist. Frolov led all Kings forwards in ice time with 20:47. Frolov had one goal and four assists in his last three games.
— Peter Harrold played 15 minutes, 56 seconds, a season-high for him when playing on the wing.
— In a largely penalty-free game, the Kings went 1-for-3 on the power play (Purcell) and the Wild went 0-for-2.
— The Kings and Wild each had 24 shots on goal.
— Denis Gauthier was credited with a game-high six hits.
