LOS ANGELES — Jeff Carter
scored two goals and added an assist, Tyler Toffoli
scored a goal and added an assist, and Jake Muzzin
scored late in the third period to lead the Los Angeles Kings
to a come-from -behind 4-3 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks
in front of a standing-room only crowd of 18,525 at Staples Center
in Los Angeles on January 28.
Anze Kopitar contributed two assists for the Kings.
The Blackhawks opened the scoring after Kings rookie defenseman Brayden McNabb blocked a shot, only to see the puck deflect right onto the stick of Chicago forward Patrick Kane below the right circle.
