Postgame notes (3/31)

— The Kings went 0-for-2 on the power play and 3-for-5 on the penalty kill. The Kings are 0-for-14 on the power play in their last four games. They allowed more than one power-play goal in a game for the first time since Feb. 18 at Anaheim, a span of 20 games.

— Jonathan Quick stopped 32 of 35 shots and had a couple streaks ended. Quick had won three consecutive home games and had not allowed a goal to the Stars this season. In two previous appearances against the Stars (one start, one relief), Quick had stopped all 33 shots he faced in 85 minutes.

— Jack Johnson scored the Kings’ first goal, giving him goals in consecutive games for the first time this season.

— Anze Kopitar scored the Kings’ second goal. Kopitar had only one point, an assist, in his previous four games.

— Derek Armstrong had an assist. Armstrong had one point, an assist, in his previous 12 games.

— Brad Richardson had an assist to break a nine-game scoreless streak.

— Sean O’Donnell had an assist.

— The Kings were outshot 35-28. Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown each had four shots for the Kings. Brown and Matt Greene tied for the team high with six hits.

— Drew Doughty played a team-high 26:28. Davis Drewiske was second at 22:43. Michal Handzus led all Kings forwards at 21:44.

    Classic first-game-after-a-long-roadtrip game: No legs, no hits, few shots, turnovers…

    “Jack Johnson scored the Kings’ first goal, giving him goals in consecutive games for the first time this season”..

    For the first time and his career too, right?


    I didn’t watch the game, but I saw that Drewiskie got the second star. I’m guessing he had an amazing game? As if he played 22:43, that’s pretty crazy stuff for a rookie that’s not named Drew Doughty.

    … Oh and you know there’s something wrong when Handzus leads your team in ice time.. Hmm..

    Rubbish! Are we still celebrating the season? Does anyone in LA still care? I still don’t see how this team is supposed to be a contender someday. Still a marginal team that is being run by a hapless organization.

    Someone needs to take my kids away. I’ve made them Kings fans, this should be considered a form of child abuse.

    Oh yeah, we’re not supposed to say anything negative about this team/org. Some are a little too sensitive and don’t like to see this fantastic team and even better organization bashed by fans, especially by those of us who have suffered for 20-25 years plus. I should be patient, I owe it to the Kings…

    Jack Johnson is playing well recently. Providing offence from the back will do wonders for this team.

    Other than that, it was a bad game. 1st period was brisk, but it wasn’t exactly exciting.

    The TURRRCOOOOO chant never gets old!

  • Johnny Utah

    That was seriously a close call…almost had a garbage game result in a W or T…not what we need.

    At least Kopi turned it over at just the right time with 20 seconds left to seal the loss.

    I would much rather see a hard-fought game end in an L than that lackluster performance pick up any points.

    4th to last, here we come!

    Davis Drewiskie was incredibly solid last night and seems to improve every game. He doesn’t wait to make the right decisions, even when hounded by 2 or 3 guys. Davis really seems to understand the X’s & O’s of the game and seems to be one of those players who is always thinking of the next play as he is playing.

    He’s a nice surprise and a good citizen to boot. The only reason he should go back to Manch this year is to help them in the playoffs. Otherwise, he should stay for good and take Goat’s spot. That’ll save you about 1.25M in cap space for that pure goal scorer we need.

    I don’t think there’s ever been a defensive pairing that’s received a nickname, but if Davis plays with Drew, you’d have to call them ‘Pair of Double D’s’. Those 2 could RACK up the points. Some BIG GUNS on D. Need LOTS OF SUPPORT though. On the tree of prospects, they are the LOW HANGING fruit.

    I think I need some meds….
