Kopitar ‘Tricks Blue Jackets Out of Two Points

Anze Kopitar must have heard the whispers recently. With just one shot on goal against Phoenix and none against Vancouver, the natives were starting to get restless.

Where was the six-million dollar man?

Then, two assists against Dallas, a goal in Detroit and saving his best performance for last – a hat trick in Columbus.

For good measure, Justin Williams added a goal and two assists.

Jonathan Bernier picked up another win, pushing his streak to 4-0-3 in his last seven starts.

Kevin Westgarth bested Jared Boll in a third period scrap, watch it here.

Another win for the Kings when leading after two periods, now 21-0-1.
