Frozen Royalty Audio And NHL Video: Michal Handzus Leads LA Kings To Record Ninth Straight Win

LOS ANGELES — During a matinee contest at Staples Center on February 6, the Los Angeles Kings set a franchise record with their ninth consecutive win, coming back from a 3-0 first period deficit to defeat the once mighty Detroit Red Wings, 4-3, in front of a sell-out crowd of 18,118 fans.

As they have many times in Saturday afternoon games, the Kings came out flat, gift-wrapping three goals for the Red Wings in the first period.

Red Wings left wing Henrik Zetterberg opened the scoring at the 8:44 mark, taking a pass from line mate Pavel Datsyuk and, while all alone in front of the net, easily tapped the puck past Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick, who had no chance.

Just sixteen seconds later, Detroit center Valtteri Filppula banked a backhand from the left circle in off of Kings defenseman Sean O’Donnell to give the Red Wings a 2-0 lead. Read more of this post

LOS ANGELES — Anze Kopitar and Ryan Smyth scored goals while Jonathan Quick stopped twenty shots to lead the Los Angeles Kings to a 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers in front of an announced sell-out crowd of 18,118 fans at Staples Center on February 2.

After a scoreless first period, Kopitar opened the scoring on a two-on-one shorthanded break at 16:43 of the second period.

Smyth scored his 17th goal of the season at 11:14 of the third period, taking a nice pass from winger Dustin Brown after a turnover by the Rangers in the neutral zone.

Quick has now won seven consecutive games, and has earned a 1.95 goals-against average and a .931 save percentage in that span.

The Kings have won their last seven games and are 9-1 in their last ten games after losing three straight games to the Detroit Red Wings on January 7, the St. Louis Blues on January 9 and the San Jose Sharks on January 11. Read more of this post
