KINGS PLAYS OF THE WEEK
LAKings.com would like to know what your favorite Kings play of the Week was for the Week of Dec. 1-7.


The Kings played four games, posting a 1-2-1 mark in those four games, earning points in the last two games with a 5-4 SO loss to Edmonton on Friday and a 3-0 shutout win vs. Columbus on Saturday.

The nominees are Alexander Frolov's breakaway goal vs. Toronto on Monday; Jason LaBarbera's save vs. Toronto on Monday; Erik Ersberg's save vs. Phoenix on Tuesday and Jarret Stoll's hit and goal vs. Edmonton on Friday.
FROLOV'S EARLY BREAKAWAY
Alexander Frolov gave the Kings an early 1-0 lead over Toronto scoring in the first minute of the game in the Kings 3-1 loss to the Maple Leafs on Monday. Matt Greene made a great lead pass hitting Frolov perfectly in stride for a breakaway with Frolov beating Vesa Toskala with a sweet backhand and an early 1-0 lead.
LABARBERA SCHOOLS THE ROOKIE
Holding on to a slim 1-0 lead over Toronto on Monday, the Maple Leafs advanced into the Kings zone on a two-on-one break with Niklas Hagman leading the drive, drawing defenseman Peter Harrold over to play the puck and sending a neat pass over to rookie Mikhail Grabovski for an attempt on a partially open cage. Jason LaBarbera moved laterally right to left and went down to stack the pads and keep the Leafs off the board.
ERSBERG LEAVES HANZAL IN DISTRESS
With the Kings holding a 1-0 lead in the second half of a back-to-back in Phoenix on Tuesday, Daniel Winnik led a two-on-one break, holding onto the puck and drawing rookie Drew Doughty to go down to the ice to block the shot, Winnik sent a pass over to a rushing Martin Hanzal, only to have Erik Ersberg go down to his knees and slide from left to right to rob Hanzal.
STOLL ROCKS FORMER TEAMMATE
With the Kings holding a 4-3 lead in the third period vs. Edmonton on Friday, Oilers defenseman Ladislav Smid carried the puck into the Kings zone only to be leveled by former Oiler Jarret Stoll along the boards with Smid turning the puck over to Peter Harrold. Smid would need help off the ice after the hit but would ultimately return to the game.
STOLL'S WIKID WRISTER
With the Kings trailing the Oilers, 3-2 in the second period on Friday, the Kings are on the power play looking to tie, Michal Handzus sent a cross-ice pass to a waiting Stoll, who collected the puck and sent a wrist shot off the post and over the right shoulder of former King Mathieu Garon to tie the game at three.
