Beat the teams you’re supposed to beat, regardless of the building. Overall, win the majority of your games at home and play better than .500 hockey on the road.

Drew Doughty opened the scoring via a power play goal — with his parents watching on, as they’re in town for the holidays. Alex Iafallo and Viktor Arvidsson recorded the Kings second and third goals, followed by a highlight reel performance by Kevin Fiala to seal the win.
Below are select highlights from Tuesday night’s game:
