Kings tie season high in goals with 5-1 victory over Vegas

LOS ANGELES (AP) Lack of scoring and being ineffective on special teams are a huge reason why Los Angeles is at the bottom of the Western Conference standings. But the Kings broke out of their offensive malaise on Saturday, tying a season high in goals as they defeated the Vegas Golden Knights 5-1.

"It's probably one of our more dominant wins and we actually played a good team here in Vegas, very good team. It was a full 60 minutes," said defenseman Drew Doughty, who had an assist. "When your team does that, you're going to win more hockey games and hopefully we realized that tonight because we need to win more."

The Kings scored their most goals since a 5-2 victory over Edmonton on Nov. 25. It was only the sixth time in 30 games that they have scored four or more goals. Los Angeles, which has two wins in its last five games, has a league-low 23 points and with 66 goals is last in the league in scoring.
