WINNIPEG - The Los Angeles Kings lost their third consecutive game as the Winnipeg Jets defeated them 4-1 at MTS Centre on Thursday.
The three-game losing streak tied a season-high for the Kings (44-25-5), who are 8-5-4 when tied after the second period this season. The loss reduced the Kings' lead in the Pacific Division to three points as the Anaheim Ducks earned a point in a 6-5 overtime loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs Thursday.
"We're not happy in here, and we need to fix things really quickly," Kings defenseman Drew Doughty said. "You can't be losing three games in a row at any time in the season. It's really frustrating that we did this, and we need to fix things, and we need to get winning hockey games because right now we're blowing our spot at the top of the division and near the top of the [Western Conference]."
