KOPI ON BENDED KNEE
After rookie Drew Doughty had put a shot on net, Kyle Calder collects the rebound and slides a pass over to a rushing Anze Kopitar. The Kings sniper goes down on one knee to beat Minnesota All-Star Niklas Backstrom to his left and put the Kings back on top, 2-1. The Kings would lead the rest of the way and win, 5-2.
 
BROWNIE TIP IN
First-time All-Star and Kings Captain Dustin Brown leads the Kings to victory with this game-winning goal past fellow All-Star Niklas Backstrom to put the Kings up, 3-1 in a 5-2 win. It was the first of back-to-back game-winning goals for the young captain, who scores on an incredibly athletic move, charging the net on the rebound and tipping it into the net as he is tripped up.
 
WELCOME BACK JACK
In just his third game back from a shoulder injury that shelved the Kings slick defenseman for 41 games, Jack Johnson plays defense in front of the Kings net, joins the rush after the Kings take possession and takes a drop pass from Patrick O'Sullivan and rifles a slapper past Peter Budaj for a 3-1 lead. The Kings would need every goal, surviving 6-5 over Colorado.
 
SVATOS DENIED
Marek Svatos gets an odd bounce off the boards and finds himself alone in front of the Kings net only to be denied by Jonathan Quick in what turned out to be a one-goal Kings win.
 
SULLY'S SHORTY
Jonathan Quick pokes the puck away with his stick, setting up a 2-on-1 breakaway between Alexander Frolov and Patrick O'Sullivan on the penalty kill. O'Sullivan carries the puck, sells the pass and puts a quick wrist shot that beats former King Cristobal Huet to his left and gives the Kings a 3-0 lead, scoring what turned out to be the game-winning goal in a 5-2 win.
