Kings lose longest shootout in franchise history
It was bad enough to lose to the Ducks, but to follow that up with a loss to the Edmonton Oilers is just sad.
After a nine game winning streak, the Kings look like they’re looking forward to the Olympic break. They came back from two goals down in the third period to force overtime to later lose in the longest shootout in franchise history. Unfortunately that third period was the only time the Kings looked strong.
As if losing to the worst team in the league isn’t bad enough, the Oiler who scored the game-winning goal was former King Lubomir Visnovsky.
Edmonton goaltender Jeff Deslauriers made 41 saves and routinely made easy poke checks that turned away seven Kings shooters in the shootout. Edmonton did have to start winning eventually. This is a team that didn’t manage a single win in the entire month of January.
The Kings have one more game before the Olympic break against the Colorado Avalanche.Filed under: Sports
