In games lost by the Kings brown has 37 games played, 5 goals, 9 assists for 14 points and is a minus 8. Brown's shooting percentage in games lost is a horrendous 4.9% while in games won by LA it's 18.4 Basically, when Brown's hockey IQ drops the Kings lose. Since the All Star Break he's been playing like a captain should play. You don't have to score 82 goals a year but you do need to show up and do the little things necessary if you're not a prolific scorer.
For the purpose of comparison, how does the same analysis work for Kopitar? For Doughty? For Richards?

When their "hockey IQs" drop, do the Kings lose?
