The Los Angeles Kings were hanging tough against the 2008 Stanley Cup Champion Detroit Red Wings on Monday night, and it looked like they might steal a victory as the game entered the final minutes. But it wasn't to be, as Kings Denis Gauthier attempted an ill-advised clearing pass that ended up on the stick Valtteri Filppula and in the back of the Kings net. The giveaway goal tied the score, sending the contest into overtime and an eventual Red Wings victory in a shootout, much to the delight of their army of fans in attendance at Staples Center.

The Kings next challenge comes on Thursday against the Vancouver Canucks at Staples Center at 7:30 PM.
