First period: Kings 2, Flames 1

The Kings pressured the Calgary Flames from the opening faceoff Wednesday night, and the result was perhaps their best opening period of the season. Their sustained pressure resulted in a goal from Dustin Brown in the early minutes. After the Flames’ T.J. Brodie tied it, Trevor Lewis put the Kings ahead 2-1 with his first goal of the season. Kings coach Darryl Sutter liked Lewis’ play so much during a 3-1 victoy Tuesday over the Edmonton Oilers that he played him with Jeff Carter and Mike Richards for Wednesday’s game against the Flames. Said Lewis during a between-periods TV interview: “We were focused tonight. We knew we needed to come out and get our legs going after playing last night. … I happened to jump on the puck and it went in.”
