They shoot, they (finally) score

The Kings broke an 0-for-27 stretch on the power play in the first period Tuesday when Drew Doughty scored. The Kings ended up getting only 2 minutes, 33 seconds of power-play time, but Terry Murray said he felt as though a power-play turnaround had been brewing for a couple games…

MURRAY: “It’s been coming pretty good, actually. The offensive-zone time, moving the puck around and establishing some momentum off of power plays, even if not scoring off of them, has been pretty effective, I think, in the last couple games. Last night, it worked. The attitude, the structure, the system haven’t changed. We just need to get that execution on a consistent basis. To me, in my experience with the game, when you’re not getting results, shoot the puck. Just shoot the God damn thing, every opportunity that you get, and something good will happen and you can start to work on those other options that are created from the hesitancy of the penalty-killing team.”
