The Kings and Flames traded penalties until things went south with Dustin Brown taking an interference call to Matt Stajan where Stajan responded with a rough check to the Kings Captain.
The Kings looked to be shutout as most of the third period flew by, leaving little time to score. They countered the Flames goal with one of their own as Justin Williams sent a drive from the right side of Flames goaltender Karri Ramo to score his tenth of the season and 200th in his career. Time was running out for both teams to finish with two points, but it turned out that one man could really make a difference. Cammalleri came into the Kings zone with the puck and battled by himself taking the puck behind the net. As he got up, he sent a pass up front to Mikael Backlund who later found Cammalleri open to score his tenth on a backhander putting the game out of Los Angeles’ reach.
With the Kings ending November with a loss, their 7-2-4 record is nothing to frown over as they hold onto third place in the Pacific, four points behind
