ANAHEIM, CA — After their best performance of the season in their last game, a 5-1 victory over the league-leading Vancouver Canucks on November 8, the Los Angeles Kings turned right around and played what was, arguably, their worst game of the season in a 6-5 shootout loss to the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center in Anaheim on November 12.
Don’t let the 6-5 score fool you. After the Kings put in a few solid shifts in the opening minutes of the game, the Ducks dominated, taking advantage of very poor defensive zone play by the Kings, not to mention a boatload of turnovers.
The Kings had just a handful of solid shifts resulting in sustained pressure in the Anaheim zone, and they capitalized on them for four of their five goals, as starter Fredrik Andersen wasn’t very sharp.
On the other end, Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick allowed five goals on 49 shots against. But despite the fact that those are not great numbers, he was the only reason the Ducks failed to runaway with the game, blowing out the Kings by a wide margin, scoring seven or eight goals…maybe more.
