"I was excited to play here for sure," said Jones, who made 24 saves to lead the Kings to their eighth straight victory with a 3-2 win over the Calgary Flames on Monday. "I had four great years here. It was a good road win. It wasn't pretty." Anze Kopitar had a goal and an assist for the Kings. The Kings scored on their first shot on goal at 4:05 of the first when Williams redirected a pass from Anze Kopitar past Ortio. Quick played the next five games in net for the Kings, all wins, before L.A. Former Calgary Hitmen goalie Martin Jones stopped 24-of-26 shots he faced to improve his record in his rookie season with the Kings to 10-4. "The way we played the last seven-eight minutes of the game, if we had played the whole game like that, the outcome might have been different," said McGrattan, who has goals in back-to-back contests after going 29 games without scoring.
