The Kings finished their road trip with a quality performance in a 2-1 shootout defeat to the Tampa Bay Lightning that took on intensified urgency for the early season and featured high-level play between two teams that have been successful defensively over the first two months. The Lightning got sticks and bodies in front of Kings chances, preventing a surplus of clean looks at Ben Bishop, who was excellent in denying high-grade looks from Nick Shore, Tyler Toffoli and Anze Kopitar before Milan Lucic scored a big goal that earned the Kings a point on a night they very nearly […]

November 25 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter

On the shootout loss to Tampa Bay: Fought back, played hard. No complaints. On taking away the Lightning’s speed: We knew they’d come out hard, and they did, and we were able to match it, and we’re a fast team, too.
