D Alec Martinez: Kind of the forgotten man on the Kings' blue line but a sneaky-good offensive player with solid defensive smarts.
F Dustin Brown: The Kings' captain is on fire, playing inspirational hockey, delivering huge hits while scoring clutch goals. He's bringing it and leads team in scoring with 11 points (6-5).
F Anze Kopitar: The team's No. 1 center is second on the team with 10 points (3-7) and never gets enough credit for his Selke-worthy defensive play.
F Mike Richards: Perfectly placed as a No. 2 center and playing for the coach who fits him nicely, the former Flyers captain is playing some of the best two-way hockey of his career.
F Justin Williams: The veteran winger is a smart player who has a knack for big plays when the team needs it.
F Dustin Penner: Pancake Penner no more. The once-forgotten winger has rediscovered himself in these playoffs and is playing an effective physical game while chipping in offensively on the second line.
F Jeff Carter: Effective at times, but overall Kings need more than just one goal from him in these playoffs.
F Jarret Stoll: The veteran center is a super-smart player who anticipates plays and helps the team at both ends of the ice.
