Dustin Brown followed up his fifth career hat trick in Los Angeles’ 5-2 win over Edmonton on Sunday by setting up a goal and scoring 53 seconds into overtime versus Vancouver. Like Brown, captain Anze Kopitar registered a three-point performance against the Oilers (one goal, two assists) before pushing his point total to five (one goal, four assists) in the last two contests after setting up both goals against the Canucks. Defenseman Drew Doughty was held off the scoresheet versus Vancouver, two days after he pushed his point streak to four games by registering his team-leading 12th assist against the Oilers.

Former Hart Trophy winner Connor McDavid is known for the sizzling speed and creativity on the ice, but that style of play is taking a backseat with a new bench boss in town. “I think we’re getting the message how (Hitchcock) wants us to play. It’s not pretty hockey. It’s a grind, it’s defensive but it’s effective,” the 21-year-old McDavid said. The NHL scoring leader in each of the last two seasons, McDavid is still providing offense — albeit to the tune of five points (one goal, four assists) during the 2-1-1 stretch under Hitchcock.
