Kings make a statement in Columbus - Dec 9, 2015

There are often four or five identifiable games that help shape the narrative of a hockey season.

With his scoring down, Kings' Anze Kopitar still points to the good - Nov 27, 2015

If his scoring chances had dried up, Kings center Anze Kopitar might worry about his paltry production. So far the chances have been there, and so is his optimism. "If the opportunities are coming, I still feel confident about myself that I'm still the same guy and I'm still going to put up numbers,"...

Drew Doughty "I'm not worried about Kopi at all. I know things are going to turn around for him at any point. He's going to start putting more and more pucks in the net and he has still been making great plays, If I want to be on the ice with anyone, I want to be on the ice with Kopi.... He maybe doesn't have the points he usually would, but he's still at the top of his game."
Dustin Brown "I think more recently you've seen him have the puck a lot more along the half-wall, which is a big part of his game, Our power play was really struggling early so it was [defenseman to defenseman], shot, and he doesn't get the touches or some of the looks he normally gets."

Alec Martinez "It's just a mind-set, Oftentimes, special teams are the difference in a hockey game. You look at last night. You've got to bear down, especially on those PKs [penalty kills]. We did a good job of using that as momentum. You talk about a power play, all the time, building momentum but a PK can do the same thing."
