Tweet from @gregbeacham: The LA Kings are scoring a goal every 7 minutes in the Willie Desjardins era which is pretty good

Tweet from @JoshuaCooper: Man, Clifford and Martinez just sliced through the Ducks. Lindholm lost an edge and Gibbons didn't notice. Next thing you know, the puck's in the net a la Clifford. 2-0 Kings

Tweet from @willietime22: And another 🏒 🥅!!! I���m kinda loving this! Can get use to this! Keep it going Boys #GoKingsGo

If this is what the rest of the season looks like, sign us up.

Tweet from @evannm_: Can already tell how much better the @lakings have looked cutting through the neutral zone under new interim coach Willie Desjardins

Tweet from @jasonlakingsfan: After one period under a new coach the @LAKings look like a new team, 2-0 after 1 so far so good #letsgokings #LAKINGS #FreewayFaceoff

Apple alert: Jack Campbell picked up his first NHL assist! 
The goalie fed a beautiful pass down the ice to Tyler Toffoli, who then fed it to Ilya Kovalchuk.
