The Los Angeles Kings broke out of their offensive malaise Saturday, tying a season high in goals as they defeated the visiting Vegas Golden Knights 5-1.
"It's probably one of our more dominant wins; it was a full 60 minutes," said defenseman Drew Doughty. "When your team does that, you're going to win more hockey games and hopefully we realized that tonight."
It was only the sixth time in 30 games that the kings have scored four or more goals. Los Angeles has a league-low 23 points and, with 66 goals, is last in the league in scoring.
