UNSUNG HERO

Kings G Jason LaBarbera came up with quite a few big saves early in the second period, which gave his team the opportunity to pull away.

GOAL OF THE GAME

Patrick O'Sullivan's shorthanded goal early in the second period sent the Kings away for good.

SAVE OF THE GAME

Calgary almost drew even early in the second period when C Craig Conroy jammed away at a puck in Jason LaBarbera's feet, but the netminder held strong. A video review proved it wasn't a goal.

WHY THE FLAMES LOST

Because they couldn't even be bothered to check their hats against a Kings team that has struggled but still is dangerous on offence.

SCRATCHES

CALGARY -- D Rhett Warrener, C/LW Wayne Primeau, C/LW Marcus Nilson.

LOS ANGELES -- D Rob Blake (ankle), C Ladislav Nagy (neck), C Micheal Cammalleri (flu-like symptoms), LW Scott Thornton (neck).
