The 23-year-old Slovakian scored the winning goal at Staples Center last Saturday before pointing skyward to honor his father, Jan, who died last week after struggling with a liver ailment.
Tatar played the following night in a 1-0 loss to the Anaheim Ducks before flying home for his father's funeral.
Tatar will be back in the lineup Saturday when the Red Wings take on the Kings again, and memories of his game-winner from last week are fresh in his mind.
"We want to win every night. I was happy I could help," Tatar told the Red Wings website. "That goal meant to me and my family a lot too."
