The Los Angeles Kings has had bad luck in the last two games, which it played against the Anaheim Ducks. Fans were beginning to think the Kings were starting to lose its touch, but it took one game against the San Jose Sharks on Jan. 27 to change their tunes. It was another low-scoring game of 1 to 0, but it was able to break the Sharks current winning-streak. Nothing feels better than a win that breaks your rivals streak.
The lone goal of the game came from the Kings' star scorer Anze Kopitar (assisted by Jeff Carter and Jake Muzzin). Kopitar made the only goal for the Kings during the two-game series with the Ducks, and he made the game-winning goal last night against the Sharks. It tasted a little sweeter knowing his goal was what made his team win the game.
The true star of the game was Kings' goaltender Jonathan Quick. He was ready to block all of the Sharks chances at goals. He needed to keep the scoreboard clean in hope of his team winning a game; it had been in a terrible slump. He was able to shut out the Sharks and make Kopitar's lone goal win the game.
The Kings next game is Jan. 28 against the Phoenix Coyotes; hopefully it will start a winning streak of its own.
