The Kings dropped their fourth straight game in a 3-2 loss to the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Monday night. That moved the Kings to 22-21-8 and another step back in the Western Conference wild card race. It was the Rangers’ (31-16-1) third straight win and goaltender Henrik Lundqvist’s second victory in as many days.
Below is what we learned from the action.
A hollow number
The Kings finished with 38 shots on goal, which was their second-highest total of the season. But they only had two goals to show for it at night’s end, and one of those came with one second on the clock and the result all but sealed.
