The Kings played four games during the week, losing 2-1 at Calgary and then winning three straight by a combined 13-5 score with wins over Minnesota, Washington and San Jose.

 
ONE-TIME PARSE
Kings forward Scott Parse ties the game with a nice one-timer past Calgary goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff just 15 seconds into the second period. Despite Parse's goal, the Kings went on to lose to the Flames, 2-1.
 
RICHARDSON DOESN'T GIVE UP
Brad Richardson continued his recent string of productive games with a goal that gave the Kings an early 1-0 lead over the Minnesota Wild. The Kings' forward doesn't give up on the play, putting the puck past Minnesota goaltender Niklas Backstrom while on the ice.
 
ZEUS COMES UP BIG
In a crucial game against the Washington Capitals, Kings' forward Michal Handzus scored the game-winning goal in the third period, beating Washington goaltender Michal Neuvirth with a nice move in front of the net.
 
QUICK'S HUGE SECOND PERIOD
With the game tied 1-1 in the second period, Kings' goaltender Jonathan Quick made sure to keep it that way with a number of big saves, including this sliding save on a shot from Washington's Alexander Semin.
 
A TEAM EFFORT
Emblematic of the game as a whole, the Kings extended their lead over the Sharks to 5-0 on a nice play by Brad Richardson and Wayne Simmonds. Richardson intercepted an attempted clear by San Jose goaltender Evgeni Nabokov and in one motion passed it to Simmonds for the goal.
