Well that was fun, wasn’t it? The Kings dismantled the San Jose Sharks in a 4-1 victory, which gave them a little breathing room in the Pacific Division standings. Martin Jones was once again stellar between the pipes turning away 32 of 33 shots, he had a shutout going through most of the game but Patrick Marleau snapped that with under three minutes to play in the game.

Last night was game number 400 in Drew Doughty’s career. Doughty has recorded 55 goals and 202 points so far in his career and has become one of the NHL’s elite defenseman. I’d say the Kings are pretty happy that they drafted this guy.
