The LA Kings closed out the season with Fan Appreciation Night as they took on the Vegas Golden Knights.
I mean, that's definitely a theory.
We honored Anze Kopitar, who played in his 1000th NHL game this past Monday.
Ilya Kovalchuk capitalizes on the breakaway and gives the Kings a 1-0 lead!

Jeff Carter keeps things rolling by pushing in a rebound to put the Kings up by two!

We also saw an NHL debut tonight.
Welcome home, Blake Lizotte!
Who would win in a race between Lizotte, Austin Wagner, and Nikki Rae Robataille? 🤔
While the Knights netted two, no one paid any mind as we were all...a bit distracted.
Hockey Night in LA guest Bert Kreisher knows how to bring the belly laughs, literally.
Kopitar taps in a loose puck on the power play!

A 5-2 win was a great way to cap off our Fan Appreciation Night.
Have a great summer, Kings fans! October cannot come soon enough ❤
