So, that week could have gone better for the LA Kings.
Losing to two teams you're chasing for a playoff spot isn't ideal. Neither is losing a game that you were leading with 90 seconds remaining.
Still, the Kings got a shutout win to keep themselves in the playoff hunt.
It may seem like all hope is lost after last night's loss to the Calgary Flames.
But, somehow, the Kings are just six points out of the final playoff spot, with both the Nashville Predators and St. Louis Blues sitting at 81 points.
All three teams play three games this week.
So, despite everything that's happened, the Kings could be right back in the playoff mix at the end of the week.
And with these amazing plays from the prior week, it's not too crazy to think that the Kings could be on the verge of turning things around.
...oh please be turning things around, Kings. Don't do this to me. Not again.
5) Dustin Brown's Between-the-Legs Snipe
This is exactly what LA Kings fans have to come expect from Brown...
4) Anze Kopitar with a Nifty Redirect
So things didn't go great in Calgary.
...but if Kopitar can go on a tear then the entire offense may follow suit.
3) Jarome Iginla with Another Game-Winner
The Kings have won three games since acquiring Iginla.
Iginla has scored the game-winning goal in two of those games.
Please keep scoring, Jarome.
2) Tyler Toffoli Doubles Up
What a day for Toffoli.
Two goals and getting fans everywhere a discount on sunglasses.
1) Adrian Kempe: Sharpshooter
Guys, I'm starting to think that Kempe is kinda good.
