LA Kings lose to Anaheim Ducks as Anže Kopitar makes landmark goal

The Los Angeles Kings took on the Anaheim Ducks yesterday Jan. 23 in the Stadium Series preview. It was a low-scoring game as the Ducks beat the Kings 2-1. This was the second time this season the Ducks and Kings faced each other, and the Kings just could not hang on. The Kings scored the first point, but the Ducks didn't allow it anymore after that. The Ducks scored both of its goals in the second quarter.

Although it wasn't the greatest game for the Kings, it wasn't a complete failure. Its sole scorer of the game was center Anže Kopitar. He scored the 187th goal of his career, which makes him the 10th on the all-time scoring list for the Kings. He passed Jim Fox -- current Fox Sports West commentator -- and though Fox may not be happy about that it's quite the accomplishment for Kopitar. If the Kings continue to keep him, hopefully he'll keep moving his way up the list.

The other two goals of the match were made in the second period by the Ducks. Dustin Penner made the equalizer in the thirteenth minute. This was what the Ducks were looking for, and it gave them the confidence to score another. In the seventeenth minute Patrick Maroon made the game winning goal for the Ducks. It was the final goal of the match and just enough for the Ducks to beat the Kings.

The Kings take on the Ducks again tomorrow Jan. 25 for the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game at Dodger Stadium. Tune in to NBCSN to watch this incredible rivalry continue.
