Even as the Los Angeles Kings struggle, Mike Richards is really picking up his game.

Richards had both of the Kings' goals (each on the power play) as Los Angeles fell 3-2 to the Chicago Blackhawks. Four of his nine points this season have come in the last games. His 30 PIM made him reasonably valuable even when the offense wasn't coming, but perhaps this production is a sign of a strong season ahead.
