The Kings showed a bit of character last night with a come from behind win over the Vancouver Canucks. The Kings fell behind in the third period but battled back with a goal late in the third period by Mike Richards. In overtime, Anze Kopitar received a pass from Slava Voynov out of the corner and beat Corey Schneider high to give the Kings the 3-2 win. This was the Kings tenth game in a row where they grabbed at least one point and improved to 7-0-3 in their last ten games.
The Kings now sit just two points out of first place in the Pacific Division and have one game in hand on the division leading Anaheim Ducks. The only game on the NHL’s schedule tonight puts the Ducks against the Dallas Stars, so tonight would be a good night to be a Stars fan. Our boys finish out this quick road trip on Wednesday in San Jose against the Sharks.
