And Bjornfot should be given that chance.
Here are some pluses and minuses from Thursday's game.

If they can create that many chances, they'll score more than once in most games.
They struggled to establish their 1-3-1 and had some connectivity issues with the puck.
The Kings will get some reinforcements with Blake Lizotte returning after his one-game suspension.
Don't plan the parade quite yet, but don't be surprised if the Kings make a deep run either.
Kempe grabbed his 35th and 36th goals of the year, setting a new career-high.
It appeared they had cut that out of their game recently, but it was back Sunday.
