Only three guys on the outside looking in, plus Drewiske traded

Williams Kopitar Kings MayorsManor
One of the many things that helped the Kings during last year’s playoff run was their balanced scoring, with nightly contributions coming from up and down the line-up. In fact, 17 different players contributed a goal during their 20-game run to capturing the Stanley Cup.

After a disappointing end to their homestand last week – where they were shutout in the final two games against Dallas and Vancouver – the Kings have rebounded nicely, posting a 3-0-1 record heading into the fifth and final game tonight.  Similar to the scenario described above, LA has seen nearly the entire roster show up on the scoresheets in the four road games played thus far. The offense has exploded for 15 goals from 10 different players. And 18 players total have recorded at least one point. Take a look:

Player – Goals, Assists (on the current road trip)
Dustin Brown – 3, 2
Anze Kopitar – 1, 3
Justin Williams – 3, 0
Jeff Carter – 2, 1
Tyler Toffoli – 1, 2
Slava Voynov – 0, 3
Mike Richards – 1, 1
Trevor Lewis – 1, 1
Jarret Stoll – 1, 1
Dwight King – 1, 1
Drew Doughty – 0, 2
Rob Scuderi – 0, 2
Brad Richardson – 1, 0
Dustin Penner – 0, 1
Colin Fraser – 0, 1
Kyle Clifford – 0, 1
Jake Muzzin – 0, 1

Of all the players to suit up for a game on the current road trip, only Jordan Nolan, Alec Martinez and Keaton Ellerby have yet to record a point.

You can scratch Davis Drewiske from the conversation because – as reported by TSN’s Darren Dreger – he was traded to the Montreal Canadiens today for a fifth round selection at the 2013 NHL Draft.
