Anze Kopitar set up Marian Gaborik for the game-tying goal in the third period, before setting up the sniper again for the overtime winner Saturday against Chicago.
Two great passing plays from Kopitar, who now has six points in his last five games. Kopitar is stuck at 13 points on the season, but he's really starting to heat up and has been held off the scoresheet once in his last five outings. With a solid plus-11 rating on the year, it appears Kopitar's offensive game is also finally starting to come alive. Use him well.
Anze Kopitar scored a pair of goals in Sunday's loss to the Hurricanes.
The second tally came on the man advantage, good for Kopitar's first power-play goal of the season. The center didn't have a great opening month, but he's turned it around with seven points (four goals, three assists) in 10 November contests.

Kopitar owners had a scare Tuesday after the star center took an elbow to the face while facing the Blues, ultimately causing him to leave the game. Fortunately, his bench boss is not worried, and fantasy players rostering the husky forward should feel safe activating him Thursday, when the Kings host the Blue Jackets.
