The LA Kings played an actual preseason game, falling to the Arizona Coyotes 2-1 on Monday. It wasn’t televised and neither is tonight’s against the Sharks, but the audio was broadcasted on the iHeartRadio app.

Our very own Russell Morgan and LA Kings Insider Zach Dooley live-tweeted the event, but first, here is the box score:

LA Kings vs Coyotes

Full box score here.

Just a few quick observations

  • The Kings outshot the Coyotes 36-24, with Martin Frk (5), Arthur Kalievy (4), and Sean Walker (4) leading the way.
  • Neither team could convert on the powerplay. I understand it’s preseason, but you don’t like to see Arizona get five chances on the man advantage.
  • Sean Walker netted the lone goal for Los Angeles with Arthur Kaliyev and camp invitee Cade McNelly picking up the assists.

The two teams took part in a practice shootout following the game.

The Kings and Sharks will get underway from the SAP Center at 7 pm PT tonight.
