Kings beat Islanders 4-2 in Kansas City @NHL

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -Wayne Simmonds had two goals and the Los Angeles Kings survived an unusually chippy preseason game to beat the New York Islanders 4-2 Tuesday night at the Sprint Center.

The night was supposed to be a showcase for the still-sparkling Sprint Center, which has been trying to land an NHL or NBA team since opening two years ago.

Instead, it turned into a slugfest, with more blows and beatings along the boards than goals. The game featured eight fighting penalties - New York's Brett Westgarth and Kings winger Raitis Ivanans twice in the first period - one match penalty, another 10-minute misconduct.
