LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Kings have only one line that’s scoring goals, but they’ve been so prolific, they’ve led the team to a 6-0-0 record to close out their home stand—a franchise record—the latest being a 5-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets during a matinee affair at Staples Center on October 26.
That line is none other than the “That 70’s Line,” featuring Jeff Carter centering Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli. Against the Blue Jackets, the line combined for four goals and six assists for ten points.
Carter and Toffoli scored a goal and added three assists each, while Pearson scored two goals.
Left wing Dwight King scored the other goal for the Kings.
A little past the midway point of the second period, superstar center Anze Kopitar left the game after suffering an upper body injury He did not return.
Later in the game, Blue Jackets forward Nick Foligno collided with linesman Shane Heyer at the Kings’ bench, suffering an apparent head or neck injury. He had to be carted off the ice, but the Blue Jackets reported that he had movement in all extremities, was alert and was speaking to doctors. After being examined at Staples Center, he traveled with the team back to Columbus.
