made sure the Los Angeles Kings
' losing streak didn't last any longer than three games.
Handzus scored the only goal of the shootout in the sixth round as the Kings beat Boston 4-3 on Saturday night after blowing a three-goal lead. The victory ended L.A.'s three-game losing streak, which included a 4-2 loss at Buffalo on Friday.
"It's a big win for us, two points, and that's really, at the end of the day, all that matters," captain Dustin Brown
said. "Considering the situation that we're in, with travel and back-to-backs and losing three in a row, it doesn't matter how we got it done. We got it done, and now we can focus on the next game."
It looked like the Kings would cruise when Jarret Stoll
's goal 2:50 into the third period made it 3-0. But the Bruins kept pelting Jonathan Quick
with pucks. They got within one by the end of the period on goals by Blake Wheeler
and Gregory Campbell
, then tied it on Patrice Bergeron
's power-play goal, a shot from the left circle over Quick's arm, with 6:16 left in regulation.
