ARE WE SICK OF THE TOO 'QUICK' FOR INSERT NAME HERE HEADLINE YET? The puck takes an odd bounce off the boards at STAPLES Center and catches Jonathan Quick by surprise, who had gone behind the net to play the puck. The puck dangerously floats in front of the Kings net where Ryan Craig puts a shot on net that a diving Quick is able to defend, setting up a three-man collision between Quick, Kyle Quincey and Jeff Halpern.
BROWN GOES TOP SHELF With the Kings in a scoreless tie midway through the third period, rookie Drew Dougthy started a Kings rush with Kyle Calder taking it up the boards and centering to a charging Dustin Brown who goes top shelf to beat Marty Turco and put the Kings on the board.
FROLOV TIES IT LATE With the Kings trailing with 17 seconds left, Alexander Frolov scores to tie the game at two in Dallas as the Kings had pulled their netminder for the 5-on-4 advantage and in a mad dash in front of the Stars net, Frolov finds the back of it and ties the game. The Kings end up falling in 3-2 shootout.
SIMMONDS LEVELS ROBIDAS Stephane Robidas might get tired of playing the Kings. Who can forget Brown dumping him into the Kings bench on Nov. 11? Here rookie Wayne Simmonds levels him behind the Kings net.
ERSBERG KEEPS IT TIGHT In a scoreless game and the Kings on the power play, Jarret Stoll and Teddy Purcell turn the puck over in the Kings zone and Mike Ribeiro has a clean break away for a short-handed goal, but Erik Ersberg rises to the challenge.
