LOS ANGELES — Anyone who has followed the Los Angeles Kings for at least a couple of seasons knows that they have a penchant for letting teams back into games after establishing a big lead.

The most notorious example in recent years was their loss in Game 3 of the 2011 Western Conference Quarterfinals, when they had a 4-0 lead, and then led 5-1, before losing in overtime, 6-5, an absolutely embarrassing defeat.

Earlier this season, the Kings had a 3-0 lead after the first period against the Ottawa Senators on October 9, at Staples Center, but then allowed three straight goals, one in the second period, and two in the third.
