WHO WAS HOT:

Four different players finished the week with two points scored; Milan Lucic (2A), Drew Doughty (1G, 1A), Marian Gaborik (1G, 1A), and Tyler Toffoli (1G, 1A). Doughty’s goal was Thursday night’s game-winner in Montreal.

"GET OUT MY WAY"



"HELLO"



"Hello"



Wanna get away?



Eeeeeeeek!

HIGHLIGHTS:

Tyler Toffoli is the lucky recipient of a whacky bounce off of a Stanchion at the Canadian Tire Centre on Monday night, where he buried the Kings’ second goal of the evening.

Nolan nails Neil.

Drew Doughty finds Anze Kopitar with a gorgeous cross-ice back-door pass to put the Kings up 2-0 Thursday night in Montreal.

Quick, crease, Quebec.

GEICO REWIND:

With the Kings making their one visit to Montreal this past week, we figured we’d throw it back to November 24, 2010, when Alec Martinez scored his first NHL goal in his fifth game against the Canadiens at the Bell Centre.
