Top 5 Plays of the Week: Wild Opening Week for LA Kings

Which will claim the top spot: Drew Doughty's OT-winner or Alex Iafallo's last-minute goal on Opening Night

by LA Kings @LAKings / LAKings.com

This definitely isn't the same LA Kings team from last season.

The Kings have scored 20 goals in their first five games. For comparison, they didn't reach 20 goals until their 11th game last season.

So plenty of offense means there were plenty of memorable moments to choose from for the first installment of Top 5 Plays of the Week!
