LOS ANGELES — Tanner Pearson scored a goal and tallied two assists, Marian Gaborik scored a goal and added an assist, and both Milan Lucic and Nick Shore scored a goal each, leading the Los Angeles Kings to a 4-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers at Staples Center on Saturday night.

Despite the four-goal outburst and the multi-point games by Pearson and the slumping Gaborik, the Kings sagged for a portion of the first period, most of the second period, and in spots during the third period, breathing life into the Oilers, who tied the game at 15:10 of the third period on a goal by Taylor Hall.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — The Los Angeles Kings routine game-day morning skate was considerably more than routine…for head coach Darryl Sutter, defenseman Drew Doughty and for the local media, all because of the presence of a seminal figure in the sport of hockey.

That man was seen on the bench during the morning skate, talking with Sutter. Later, as he made his way into the dressing room area, he stopped to chat with radio play-by-play announcer Daryl Evans. Once inside, Doughty was pulled out of an interview with the media to meet him.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — Being the new kid in school is usually tough for any student. Indeed, after being uprooted from comfortable, familiar surroundings where you have established friendships, maybe even boyfriends or girlfriends, you are suddenly dropped into a new school in a new city or town where you are, almost literally, on a deserted island—you feel alone and isolated, having to fit in all over again.

Being the new kid in school is not all that unlike what a hockey player feels like, especially a veteran, when they move from one team to another, as Los Angeles Kings left wing Milan Lucic has done this season.

Frozen Royalty Video: Brown, Pearson After 3-2 Loss To Arizona

LOS ANGELES — Martin Hanzal scored two goals and Brad Richardson scored the game-winner at 9:59 of the third period to lead the Arizona Coyotes to a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center on Tuesday night.

Dustin Brown scored his first goal of the season at 5:54 of the first period, and Tyler Toffoli scored his tenth of the season on the power play at 5:00 of the second period, but that wasn’t enough to offset the Kings’ spotty play and defensive breakdowns that gift-wrapped three goals for the Coyotes.

AUDIO: Listen to media interviews with Los Angeles Kings forward Dustin Brown and head coach Darryl Sutter after the team’s practice on November 6, 2015.


EL SEGUNDO, CA — To say that Los Angeles Kings forward Dustin Brown is struggling to score goals would be an understatement of epic proportions.

In 13 games this season, Brown has a big goose egg in the goals scored column of the stats sheet. In fact, if you go back to last season, Brown’s last goal came on April 2, 2015, in an 8-2 blowout win over the Edmonton Oilers at Staples Center in Los Angeles, ending a 19-game goal scoring drought for the Kings captain.
