Willie Desjardans made his coaching debut as the LA Kings faced the Anaheim Ducks!
Fans were hoping to see a fire lit under the team... and they did.

Tweet from @LAKings: There are two new faces behind the LA Kings bench and we have everything you need to know about both interim Head Coach Willie Desjardins and Assistant Coach Marco Sturm.

Since it was election day...
Every fan in attendance received a "Vote 'YES' on the LA Kings" button!

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.

Tweet from @westcoasthky: Jack Campbell getting in on the new up tempo style of the Kings as he makes the stretch pass to @tytoff16 who dishes to Kovalchuk and it is 3-0 LA
