Frozen Royalty Video: Greene, Brown, Carter and Sutter After LA Kings Drop 4-2 Decision at Anaheim

ANAHEIM, CA — For the second consecutive game, the Los Angeles Kings were sloppy with the puck, and ended up spending a lot of time in their own zone. The result: a come-from-ahead 4-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center in Anaheim on February 27.

The Kings took a 2-0 lead into the third period, but that lead was deceiving, as it was the Ducks who were in control, with the exception of the final ten minutes of the first period.

In the third, the Ducks capitalized on turnovers and sloppy play by the Kings to score four unanswered goals (the fourth goal was an empty-net goal) to secure the win.

LOS ANGELES — On a night when the Los Angeles Kings earned a much-needed 5-3 win over the Calgary Flames at Staples Center in Los Angeles, they honored former head coach Barry Melrose during one of their Legends Nights. But they also honored one very special guest.

On February 12, nine-year-old Grace Bowen, who played right wing for the West Northumberland Wild of the Lower Lakes Female Hockey League, was honored by the Kings prior to the game.

Accompanied by her father, Greg, and her mother, Andrea, young Grace, a native of Grafton, Ontario, dropped the puck for the ceremonial opening face-off.

As reported by Pete Fisher in Northumberland Today, Prior to her birthday in April 2014, Grace was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare form of cancer.

Doctors found a tumor in her right femur along with a pathological fracture. Grace underwent 7 1/2 months of chemotherapy, along with “…rotation plasty surgery to remove the tumor and utilize her ankle to create a new knee. That joint will be used when Grace gets a prosthetic.”

Due to the bounce, Kane had a gaping net to shoot at, giving the Blackhawks the lead just 1:58 into the game.
