Kings Vs. Coyotes: L.A. Picks Up A Point In Phoenix, Falls In Overtime 3-2

Daymond Langkow put one past Jonathan Quick with 44 seconds remaining in overtime, giving the Phoenix Coyotes a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings Saturday night at Jobing.com Arena in Phoenix. The Kings have picked up three of a possible four points in the first two games of their brief three-game road trip.

Quick saved 30 of the 33 shots he faced, and has yet to lose in regulation this year. Quick is 6-0-2 on the season.

Anze Kopitar scored his fifth goal of the season, tops on the Kings, 6:30 into the third period to tie the game at 2-2. It was assisted by Trent Hunter and Matt Greene. Hunter was playing Saturday in place of Simon Gagne, who sat with an undisclosed injury.

Kopitar has scored at least one point in eight of his 10 games this season. Mich Richards also lit the lamp for Los Angeles, his second goal of the year, which briefly gave the Kings a 1-0 lead in the second period.

The Kings (6-2-2) end their road trip in Denver Sunday night, facing the Colorado Avalanche.

Kings Vs. Coyotes: Drew Doughty Activated, Simon Gagne Out With Undisclosed Injury

As expected, the Los Angeles Kings activated defenseman Drew Doughty on Saturday before tonight's contest against the Phoenix Coyotes at Jobing.com Arena in Arizona. Doughty missed the last five games with an upper body injury. Rookie Viatcheslav Voynov impressed in his first five NHL games, but the 21-year old was assigned to the Manchester Monarchs of the AHL.

Doughty, who signed an eight-year contract extension with the Kings in September, missed the last five games after getting hit by Zac Rinaldo of the Philadelphia Flyers on October 15. The 21-year old Voynov scored two goals and an assist in Thursday's road win over the Dallas Stars, including the game-winning goal.

In addition to Doughty's return, there is another roster shuffle of sorts. Left wing Simon Gagne will not play tonight, per Rich Hammond of LAKingsInsider.com, with an undisclosed injury. Gagne is considered day-to-day. Trent Hunter will take Gagne's place.

Saturday's 6 p.m. PDT game will be televised by Fox Sports West. For more Kings news and information, be sure to read Jewels From The Crown.
