Brown is a physical presence and the captain of the Kings, but lately he’s also been one of their best players offensively. He’s on a seven-game point streak and 13 points in his last nine contests going into Sunday’s match against Chicago. Brown is still on pace to finish the season a step below the numbers he put up from 2007-08 to 2010-11, but after going cold in November and December this season, he’s making up for lost time.
Kings coach Darryl Sutter thinks that Brown’s success has come because he’s been playing a North-South game.
“Brown’s been really solid,” Sutter said. “He’s got to play a straight-line game. If you see him going East to West on the ice, you’ll know he’s not on his game.”
The question now is if Brown and the Kings snap their two-game losing streak and so that their recent slump doesn’t cause serious damage to their chances of making the playoffs.
