Penguins Vs. Kings: Pens Win In Shootout Before Big Crowd In Kansas City

In NHL preseason action, the Penguins defeated the Los Angeles Kings 3-2 in a shootout before a packed house (well, by the numbers, at least) in Kansas City Tuesday night.

The Kings took a 1-0 lead into the third period thanks to a first-period goal by Jarret Stoll. But Deryk Engelland scored early in the third period for the Pens, and Chris Kunitz followed up a few minutes later to put the Pens in the lead.

A tripping penalty by Joe Vitale led to a Kings power-play goal by Alec Martinez with six minutes left in the game.

That led to a shootout. Evgeni Malkin made his shot early on, but Stoll responded with one of his own. After a long series of misses by both teams, Matt Niskanen made the winning shot for Pittsburgh.

Marc-Andre Fleury played the entire game and had 19 saves for the Pens.
