(Newser) – Ladislav Nagy and Alexander Frolov each had a day to remember Tuesday, reports the Los Angeles Times. The Los Angeles Kings pair both scored five points to lead their team a 9-2 crushing of the Chicago Blackhawks in Los Angeles. The Kings actually trailed 2-1 in the first period before scoring eight unanswered goals.

Nagy had three goals and two assists, while Frolov had two goals and three assists as the Kings scored nine goals for the first time since 1995. "Just the power play working really well for us. We got four or five power-play goals. So that was a great win for us,'' Nagy said. It was the Kings third straight win after an 8-game losing streak.
