Kings score four goals, but their offensive depth is a glaring weakness

The Kings scored four times in their 4-2 victory over the Boston Bruins, the most they’ve scored since beating the San Jose Sharks 4-1 on Dec. 19. Jeff Carter, Justin Williams, Alec Martinez and Dustin Brown scored for the Kings. Martinez became the first Kings defenseman to score a goal since he had the first one during their aforementioned win over the Sharks, ending an eight-game streak.

However, the Kings’ third- and fourth-line players continue to be as dry as the Sahara. The Kings’ goal-scorers since Martinez, Carter, Dwight King and Tyler Toffoli tallied against the Sharks have been:

Carter and Williams in a 3-2 shootout win over Colorado on Dec. 21.

Williams and Jarret Stoll in a 5-2 loss to Dallas on Dec. 23.

Carter and Anze Kopitar in a 3-2 loss to Nashville on Dec. 28.

No one in a 1-0 loss to Chicago on Dec. 30.

Carter and Kopitar in a 3-2 loss to Dallas on Dec. 31.

No one in a 5-0 loss to St. Louis on Jan. 2.

Carter (twice) and Brown in a 3-1 win over Vancouver on Jan. 4.

Stoll in a 2-1 loss to Minnesota on Jan. 7.
