According to TSN on Monday, the Los Angeles Kings defeated the Calgary Flames 3-2 at the Scotiabank Saddledome. With the victory, the Kings have now won eight straight games.

Slovenian star Anze Kopitar led the Kings in scoring with a goal and an assist for two points. Kopitar scored a goal on his only shot on net in the contest. His goal was the game winning goal at 7:01 of the third period from defensemen Drew Doughty and Jake Muzzin.

The Kings took a commanding 3-0 lead in the game only to see the Flames march back by dominating Los Angeles in the final ten minutes. Michael Cammalleri and Brian McGrattan each scored for Calgary to pull the Flames within one.

McGrattan, who is regularly an enforcer, is playing his best hockey of the season. He registered a game high six shots on net on Monday, and has now scored in two straight games as he scored Calgary's lone goal Saturday in a 2-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks.

Kings' goaltender Martin Jones got the victory by making 24 saves. Jones is very comfortable at the Scotiabank Saddledome because he was the Western Hockey League playoff most valuable player with the Calgary Hitmen in 2009-10.

Calgary drops to 25-33-7 and are 15 points back of the Dallas Stars for a playoff spot. Calgary's next game is against the Pacific Division leading Anaheim Ducks in Calgary on Wednesday. Note the start time is 8:00 p.m.
