LOS ANGELES — With the Pacific Division-leading San Jose Sharks in town, the Los Angeles Kings were looking to cut into the Sharks six-point lead over them in the division standings.

Although the Kings won the game, 4-3, they gift-wrapped a point in the standings for the Sharks by giving up the tying goal at the 19.55 mark of the third period, when Sharks forward Patrick Marleau scored his second goal of the game.

To magnify the fact that the Kings blew an opportunity to draw even closer to the Sharks, Kings right wing and team captain Dustin Brown scored his second goal of the game just 1:37 earlier, giving the Kings a 3-2 lead, with less than two minutes remaining in regulation. Read more of this post

Devin Setoguchi scored the lone goal for the Sharks at 18:54 of the second period.

Frozen Royalty Audio and NHL Video: LA Kings Embarrass Themselves Against Chicago

LOS ANGELES — Since mid-February, the only thing that has been consistent about the Los Angeles Kings is that they are likely to come out flat to start a game and put in a lethargic, uninspired effort.

On March 18, the Kings got off to a decent start against the Chicago Blackhawks, but after killing six minutes worth of penalties early in the first period, the ‘Hawks had an easy night, courtesy of the Kings, who gift-wrapped a 3-0 shutout win for the ‘Hawks, disappointing a sell-out crowd of 18,118 fans at Staples Center.
