For only the second time this month, the L.A. Kings missed out on gaining at least a single point in the standings.

On Saturday, with overtime looming against the Calgary Flames, the Kings saw their point streak come to an end at 11 games when Michael Cammalleri scored on Ben Scrivens with 23 seconds remaining in the third period.

The Cammalleri goal, which capped off a determined effort in the offensive zone from the veteran forward, gave the Flames a 2-1 road victory.

The Kings had tied the game just four minutes and 10 seconds earlier, on a Justin Williams goal that was the 200th of his career. Anze Kopitar added an assist, giving him his 500th career point, according to the Kings’ Twitter account.

But individual accolades were quickly forgotten about when Cammalleri scored on the back hand in close on Scrivens.

    Extremely poor judgement by Voynov going for his stick and leaving Cammalleri unobstructured. You ALWAYS take the man in the defensive zone. Seriously, throw a check if you don’t have a stick. Take a holding penalty if you truly must. Make a desperation play. Anything’s better than leaving him all alone in front of the bloody net. The worst that can happen is a goal, and that’s what you allow to happen when you let a man go unopposed like that.

    Cammalleri is going to be a hot deadline commodity.

      Hopefully! I’d like to see the Flames get a 1st and a good young prospect in return for him but his pending UFA status may limit that. Between him, Hudler and Wideman the Flames should be able to load up on more rebuilding pieces.

    Drew Doughty is right in that the Flames didn’t outplay them BUT the Kings didn’t outplay the Flames either and didn’t do enough to win the game.

      I’m right here …

      listen pal, what happened last night is known as ‘compassion’ which is a virtue that’s obviously alien to people like you and your beloved Flickers … nonetheless, we Kings have no quarrel with you ‘cellar-dwellers’ and we wish you well … say ‘hi’ to the Canuckles down there for us eh ? :)

      Compassion: The feeling of empathy for others. Compassion is the emotion that we feel in response to the suffering of others that motivates a desire to help. Values-driven sporting teams will sometimes display compassion when facing an opponent of infinitely lesser quality and/or lowly prospects.
