Anze Kopitar was held without a point for the eighth time in nine games Tuesday as the Kings dropped a 1-0 decision to Buffalo.

Other than a two-point effort against the Bruins on December 2nd, Kopitar hasn't seemed himself for the better part of a month. His track record suggests he'll bounce back, but the depth of his slump has us wondering whether there's a lingering injury at play.
Tue, Dec 9, 2014 10:56:00 PM

Anze Kopitar has just five goals and a dozen poinst through the first 24 games this season.

It's been easily the worst start of his career as he's usually reliable for about 25-goals and 70-plus points per season. Jeff Carter, Justin Williams and Tanner Pearson have all seen time on his wing, but it's Marian Gaborik who was brought in to be his running mate. Look for these to start hooking up as soon as Gabby's back in action.

Anze Kopitar assisted on both goals in the Kings' 2-0 shutout of the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night.

Its been a slow start for the Slovakian star who has just 12 points in 25 games. Tyler Toffoli added the empty netter while Brayden McNabb added an assist to factor in on the scoring.
