The Los Angeles Kings have been flexing some muscle in the early stages of the season which continued in a 2-1 victory against the New York Islanders that upped their record to 10-6-0. Low scoring affairs and the Kings seem to go hand in hand and that’s what we had here; a few goals and then turn things over to the defense and goaltending. Drew Doughty and Milan Lucic found the back of the net for Los Angeles while Jhonas Enroth improved to 3-0-0 with a 31 stop performance. The Islanders simply ran in to a hot goaltender with Brock Nelson the only offense New York could muster while Jaroslav Halak took the defeat with both goals given up on 22 shots.
