Ben Scrivens' shutout streak ends at 191 minutes, but LA Kings beat Lightning 5-2

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Anze Kopitar and Matt Frattin each had a goal and an assist, and Ben Scrivens extended his unlikely winning streak with 19 saves in the Los Angeles Kings' 5-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.

Justin Williams also had a goal and an assist for the Kings, who have earned a point in seven consecutive games. Captain Dustin Brown and Dwight King also scored in Los Angeles' impressive return from a four-game road trip.

Scrivens' shutout streak ended at 191 minutes, 19 seconds on Valtteri Filppula's power-play goal late in the second period, but injured Jonathan Quick's new backup cruised to his fourth consecutive victory in his home debut.

Ben Bishop stopped 26 shots and Victor Hedman had a goal and an assist for Tampa Bay.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
