“We came out with the right mindset, we came out shooting,” said Jake Muzzin after the win. “That was big for us; it was nice to get the ball rolling to start. We had some opportunities to put the game away in the second and we couldn’t, that gave them life but we shouldn’t need the late game heroics if we capitalize on our chances.”

During their first power play of the evening, Marian Gaborik got the Kings on board with a nifty redirection in front of Dustin Tokarski’s net. Upon receiving a pass from Jake Muzzin, Brayden McNabb fired a slap shot from the top of Montreal’s zone, which Gaborik tracked the entire way before tipping past Tokarski. See the full story here
