Fehr’s first-period goal exemplified the Kings’ lack of good fortune this season.

Marcus Foligno eluded Sean Walker along the left boards and centered the puck toward the Los Angeles net. Racing down the slot, Fehr was hauled down by Jake Muzzin, but the duo’s momentum carried them to the edge of the crease, where the puck deflected off a sliding Fehr and into the net.
