Kings at Avalanche: post-game notes, Kopitar goal video

Last night, the Kings beat the Avalanche 6-0 in Colorado – powered by four goals in the second period. Below are some key stats from the game and fan-filmed footage of Anze Kopitar putting one of his three goals in the net.

* Justin Williams led all Kings with six shots on goal (one went in). Kopitar was second, with five. Trevor Lewis had four.

* The Kings, after playing the night before in Kansas City, came out of the gates slow – putting only six shots on goal in the first. They then outshot the Avs 14-9 and 12-7 in the final two periods.

* Jonathan Quick played the entire game in net, stopping all 27 shots he faced.

* Dwight King, Justin Azevedo and Andrew Campbell all made a rare start. And they showed up on the box score – in the penalty section. Campbell and Azevedo each received two minutes for tripping, while Kings was give a four minute double-minor for high sticking in the third.

* Jack Johnson led the Kings in total ice time (23:30). Rookie Slava Voynov wasn’t far behind at 23:16.

* More from the two defensemen – Voynov had two points (1 G, 1 A) and Johnson finished the night with three assists.

* Scott Parse watch continues – he played 13:43, including 3:43 on the power play (!), plus assisted on Williams PPG goal and took the first penalty of the game at 5:30 of the first period (hooking)

* To the surprise of nobody, Brad Richardson scored AGAIN against his old club. The full story of the ‘human avalanche’ can be read here.

* After shutting down six different Avs power plays, the Kings are now a perfect 18-for-18 on the penalty kill so far this preseason.

* About the only flaw you could point to in LA’s overall game last night was in the faceoff circle. Kopitar went 5-14 (36%) and Lewis was 6-13 (46%). Colorado’s Paul Stastny won an amazing 14 of his 18 faceoffs (78%).

Finally, some fan-filmed footage of Kopitar’s third goal of the night can be seen here.
