Some notes from last night’s game…
— The Kings lost to the Anaheim Ducks, 2-0, on Monday night for their fourth consecutive loss and their seventh loss in their last eight games.
— The Kings have their first four-game losing streak since Dec. 17-30 of last season. The last time the Kings earned only two points, in any eight-game stretch, was Dec. 12-26, 2007, when they went 0-8-0.
— With the loss, the Kings fell to fifth — and last — place in the Pacific Division and 11th in the Western Conference. They were passed by the Ducks and San Jose Sharks, who were idle but now have played one fewer game than the Kings.
— The Kings have been outscored 11-4 in their last four games and 29-15 (in regulation) in their last eight games.
— The Kings are now 2-3-0 against Pacific Division teams and 7-7-0 against Western Conference teams.
— The Kings had scored a power-play goal in three consecutive games but went 0-for-3 against the Ducks. They also went 1-for-2 on the penalty kill.
— The Kings outshot the Ducks 27-19.
— The Kings are 3-8-0 this season when allowing the first goal of the game and 2-7-0 when trailing after two periods.
— The Kings were shut out for the first time since March 18 of last season (3-0 vs. Chicago) and were shut out by the Ducks for the first time since Nov. 16, 2008 (2-0 at Anaheim).
— Jonathan Quick stopped 17 of 19 shots but lost for the fourth time in his last five starts. Quick has allowed only two goals in each of his last three losses, and two of the four goals have come on opponents’ power plays.
— Ryan Smyth had a team-high five shots on goal. Kyle Clifford was credited with four hits.
— The Kings won 20 of 42 faceoffs (48 percent).
— Drew Doughty played a game-high 26 minutes, 41 seconds. Ryan Smyth led all Kings forwards in ice time at 20:31.
