The Kings always seem to have problems with the Calgary Flames losing six of their last ten showdowns at STAPLES Center. On this night however, the Kings reversed that trend in their 2-1 win.

“They’re always a tough team to play against,” head coach Terry Murray said. “They got some real top guys in the league.”

Despite that, the Kings put together a consistent 60 minutes on the ice dominating the game even though the score didn’t indicate it.

“In my three years here, tonight was the best 60 minutes we played against that team,” Drew Doughty said. “In that 60 minutes I thought we were pretty stellar the entire time except for maybe that last five minutes when they got that goal.”
