Jaroslav Halak's 20 saves weren't enough to topple the Kings on Thursday night.

While Drew Doughty's laser to tie the game at one is something that can happen to any goalie, Halak and the Islanders had terrible luck on Milan Lucic's tally. After stopping Tyler Toffoli's initial shot, the puck bounced off of Lucic twice and found its way around Halak for the game's final marker. In a lot of ways, this was emblematic of Halak's season thus far. Anyway, his now owns a 4-3-1 record with just 17 goals against.

He has a 1.65 goals-against-average and a .936 save percentage in 2015-16.
