Maybe he sticks with that curve and shot so he doesn't miss the net, a very basic approach of getting the puck on net which is lost on a few other Kings. Dustin Brown should thank his lucky stars he doesn't play in Canada or another major NHL market because he would be getting shredded in the papers and on TV-CONSISTENTLY.
I'm thinking it has something to do with confidence. During his hot streaks he gets into the right shooting lanes, actually drives to the net for rebounds and such. Lately he's been doing the same old "attempt" at getting the puck through the defenders skates and being either stripped or pushed off the puck. He kinda seems lost to where he should be when he doesn't have possession.
