Kings knock off Red Wings 4-2

(LOS ANGELES) – Alex Iafallo is starting his second season with the Los Angeles Kings on a line with a Hart Trophy finalist and a former No. 1 overall draft pick. The former undrafted free agent realizes his extraordinary good fortune to be alongside Anze Kopitar and Ilya Kovalchuck, and he's determined to make the most of it. Iafallo scored two third-period goals and Kovalchuk had his first two NHL assists in nearly 5 1/2 years, leading the Kings to a 4-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night. Kopitar and Paul LaDue also scored as the Kings earned their first victory of the new season. Jack Campbell made 36 saves for the Kings in place of Jonathan Quick, who went on injured reserve with a lower-body injury sustained in practice Saturday. Campbell earned his third career NHL victory with several solid stops. Anthony Mantha and Dylan Larkin scored power-play goals for the Red Wings, and rookie defenseman Dennis Cholowski had two assists. Former Kings goal Jonathan Bernier stopped 21 shots in his Detroit debut, but a miscommunication with his defensemen allowed Kovalchuk to swoop in for the puck and the pass setting up Iafallo's first goal. The Red Wings signed Bernier as a free agent in July. He was drafted 11th overall by Los Angeles in 2006 and was Quick's backup on Los Angeles' 2012 Stanley Cup championship team.
