While that's a good sign, there's one glaring issue, who takes those minutes from Kopitar and Doughty?
This is my first year casting a ballot and I'll run through who I voted for and why.
Don't plan the parade quite yet, but don't be surprised if the Kings make a deep run either.
One of the players to elevate their game the most is star defensemen Drew Doughty.
Doughty rolled back the years Thursday, scoring a highlight reel goal early in the second after a great defensive play in the first.
It's a mixed bag of emotions and something the Kings will have to work out quickly.
It's going to be odd for them, but they're both happy for Quick.
This is in line with the suspension handed to Garnet Hathaway in 2019 for a similar incident.
Hear from Doughty, Kempe, Trevor Moore and Todd McLellan postgame.
It was Copley's best game for the Kings and a deserved win for him.
