LOS ANGELES (AP) — Will Ferrell spent the second period of the Kings’ game against the San Jose Sharks as part of the local television broadcast in his “Anchorman” character, Ron Burgundy. The comedian, who often attends games, never got to call a goal for the home team.
They more than made up for it as soon as Burgundy left the booth.
Anze Kopitar had a goal and an assist, Matt Roy scored his first career goal and the Kings used a three-goal third period to top the Sharks 4-2 on Thursday night.
“Winning’s a lot more fun that losing, and we’ve done a lot of losing this year,” said Kings forward Dustin Brown, who scored for the third straight game.
Jeff Carter also scored for Los Angeles, which snapped a five-game skid at home. Jonathan Quick made 23 saves.
