Frozen Royalty Video: LA Kings Edged In Shootout At Anaheim, 4-3

ANAHEIM, CA — Corey Perry scored a breakaway goal and another in the shootout to lead the Anaheim Ducks to a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings in front of a standing-room only crowd of 18,494 fans at Honda Center in Anaheim on April 7.

Ducks forwards Kyle Palmieri opened the scoring at 2:54 of the first period after Kings defenseman Robyn Regehr was unable to clear the zone along the left wing boards. Ducks forward Matt Beleskey got the puck to Palmieri, who skated past Kings left wing Jordan Nolan, who got caught flat-footed. Palmieri went in alone on Kings goaltender Jonathan Bernier, who made the initial save. But the puck hit Palmieri’s skate, and bounced into the net.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — Not long after newly acquired defenseman Robyn Regehr left the ice following the Los Angeles Kings’ optional skate on April 3, President/General Manager Dean Lombardi came down from his second floor office to hold court with the local media.

As it usually does, Lombardi’s remarks about the trade ended up being a verbal treatise on building a National Hockey League team in the salary cap era.

Mind you, that is not a complaint. Far from it. In fact, Lombardi’s comments are almost always pure gold, given the information and detail he provides.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — Although it was just an optional skate for the Los Angeles Kings, newly acquired defenseman Robyn Regehr was on the ice, and he spent a lot of time just talking with assistant coach John Stevens, trying to get the lay of the land.

Regehr, 32, was acquired by the Kings on April 1, in a trade with the Buffalo Sabres, who will receive two second round picks in the National Hockey League Draft from the Kings, one in 2014 and another in 2015.

In his first chance to meet the local media, the 6-3, 225-pound Canadian (born in Recife, Brazil) talked about his whirlwind past couple of days.

“Buffalo flew to Pittsburgh, that would’ve been April 1,” Regehr explained. “That night, we went out for dinner, and I was hearing from my agent (J.P. Barry) that something might be happening. He mentioned Los Angeles, and there were a couple of other teams we heard rumors about. But he then said it was Los Angeles. We talked a little bit about it, and the fit. I was asked to waive [his no movement clause] after dinner.”
