Dustin Brown RW LA 6 Days

Brown potted a goal in Wednesday's win over the Sharks.

Brown has seen his offensive involvement increase recently, generating two goals, an assist, and 16 shots on goal over four games. The winger currently slots in on the Kings' top line next to Anze Kopitar and Marian Gaborik, though coach Darryl Sutter's penchant for tinkering with his trios could result Brown in falling from a scoring line at some point in the second half.

Brown pocketed two assists in Thursday's loss to the Rangers.

The winger has gathered a helper in all three of his January contests thus far, but remains mired in a long goal drought. He hasn't found the net since his two-goal game back on Dec. 4, and has just six tallies on the season. The lack of diversity in his scoring doesn't make him a particularly attractive fantasy forward at this time, despite the point streak.

Brown notched an assist in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Flames.

Since his three-point showing back on Dec. 5, Brown has fallen back into a prolonged slump similar to what he experienced in October. He's picked up assists in two of his last three contests, but prior to that he had been held off the scoresheet for eight straight games, producing a minus-6 rating during that stretch. That volatile production makes him a tough forward to count on for fantasy purposes.

Brown busted out with two goals on two shots as well as a power-play assist in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Coyotes.

After a pair of scoreless games, Brown got back on the board, but he continues to put up low-end offensive numbers. Once good for 50-plus points every year, Brown saw his offensive production decline sharply last year, and things haven't been much better this year.

Brown scored a goal and added an assist while firing four shots on goal and skating to a plus-2 in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Wild.

With the Kings having several scoring options up front, the veteran captain only has seven points in 23 games this year, but his 54 shots and 55 hits still give him relevance in many leagues.

Brown has just one point and a minus-4 rating through the Kings' first 12 games.

Brown's point totals have been trending downward for the previous four seasons, and based on the early returns, it certainly looks like that trend will continue again 2014-15. He's actually noticing a substantial increase in ice time (17:19 per game) from last season (15:50), but it's yet to bear any fruit for the 29-year-old. At this stage in his career, Brown carries his most value in the form of high hit and penalty-minute totals.

The Stanley Cup won by the Los Angles Kings on Friday night was tougher to win than the one they won two years ago, their captain says.

"This one is a lot different, it was harder, we had it easy last time," said Dustin Brown, one of 14 Kings who have won both Cups. "This one was harder. It gives you perspective. This is how I always envisioned it would be." The Kings became the first team in NHL history to win three Game 7s on the road, and they eventually required 26 games to win the Stanley Cup, six games longer than in 2012 and equal to the longest postseason work schedule in NHL history.

Dustin Brown wasn't willing to chalk Game 4's loss to the New York Rangers as bad luck.

"We need to make it harder on them," said the Los Angeles captain. "We could be harder, it's about physicality. I'm talking about puck battles and stick battles in front of the net." The Kings weren't able to capitalize on two occasions when pucks got behind Henrik Lundqvist and stopped short on the goal line. "It sucks, we should have put those in the net, they were just laying right out there for us," defenseman Drew Doughty added. "Two of them like that, that's the difference in the game." Brown scored the Kings' only goal in Wednesday's loss on a pretty move during a breakaway just after the Kings had killed off a New York power play. He has 14 points in 25 playoff games.

Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown is running away with the hits lead in the 2013-14 postseason.

Brown has 115 hits in 23 games, exactly five per appearance. No one else even has 100, as teammate Jarret Stoll is in second place with 87. Brown had the ninth-highest regular season total with 246, too, so he's an asset in leagues with varied stats.

Dustin Brown's double overtime winner was the first time in the playoffs that he has scored a goal in extra time.

The Kings captain had a horrible regular season in which he had only 15 goals and 27 points in 79 games but he has more than made up for it in the post-season with five goals and 13 points in 23 games. It was also his second game winner in the 2014 playoffs.
