Red Wings Vs. Kings Recap: Detroit Falls On Road To Los Angeles

Four Kings registered a goal and an assist each in the Kings 5-2 win over the Red Wings on Wednesday night, sending Detroit to its fourth loss in five outings.

Los Angeles jumped out to a 2-0 first period lead before a Jiri Hudler goal early in the second period cut the deficit in half. It wasn't long before the Kings widened the gap again, however, as Drew Doughty put his team up 3-1 on what would be the eventual game-winning goal.

Johan Franzen added the other Detroit tally, but the Wings defense had no answers for the Kings, who put four goals past Jimmy Howard on just 26 shots.

Detroit now stands seven points behind the Central Division-leading Blues. The Red Wings take the ice again on Wednesday night at Anaheim.
