The Los Angeles Kings gained a victory against the Dallas Stars 5-2, returning home to STAPLES Center on Saturday night, from a four-game road trip.
From Kings coach Darryl Sutter’s changes to the line-up, to Justin Williams and Anze Kopitar gaining three points each, Jake Muzzin returning to the line-up and gaining two assists, Kyle Clifford getting his first goal of the season, and another outstanding performance by goaltender Jonathan Quick with 27 saves, the Kings were able to get their fifth win in the last six games.
The first period started off with a goal from the Stars, but at 16:31 the Kings fired back as Justin Williams scored, a deflected shot, assisted by Jake Muzzin and Anze Kopitar. At 19:32 Williams, during a power play, got his second goal of the night with a backhand shot, assisted by Anze Kopitar and Drew Doughty.
During the second period the only goal came from the Stars.
At 4:42 in the third period Drew Doughty with a backhand shot made the score tied, assisted by Justin Williams and Anze Kopitar, ultimately the game winning goal. At 13:02 Kyle Clifford with a snap shot came out of nowhere, assisted by Matt Greene and Jake Muzzin. At 19:30, the Stars had no goaltender in the net and a six man advantage, but Matt Greene with a wrist shot, got the puck into the empty net.
Kings outshot the Stars 34-29, and faceoff wins 35-32.
The next Kings game is Monday at 7:30 p.m., against the Calgary Flames at STAPLES Center.
