The Kings had three games this week, all of which were apart of a five-game home stand that started last week and will conclude tomorrow night. Overall the Kings have to be disappointed with the outcome of the last week’s games. The Kings went 1-1-1 only getting three of a possible six points. But six out of six was a definite possibility for Los Angeles.

The Kings opened the week with a 2-1 shootout loss to the Minnesota Wild, a game where they faced an inexperienced goalie and controlled much of the game but still came up short. The Kings rebounded against the Boston Bruins with a 4-2 victory. The momentum from that win carried over to the Kings’ final game of the week against the Red Wings, but much like the Wild game, the Kings came up short in a 3-1 loss despite dictating much of the play.
