LA Kings Face The Oilers Sharks And Avalanche

Los Angeles Kings

Go Kings Go

The Los Angeles Kings continued their hot streak, winning three of four on the road, including three consecutive wins in Canada behind the play of rookie goaltender Martin Jones. The Kings six game winning streak came to an end Sunday night at the hands of the defending Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks. The Kings return home for four games, starting Tuesday night when they host the Edmonton Oilers at STAPLES Center. You can still purchase Kings Tickets for the Tuesday game as well as the entire Kings Schedule.

Week Recap: The Kings play without star goaltender Jonathon Quick has been impressive with both Ben Scrivens and Martin Jones stepping up with solid play. Jones had shotouts in two of his first three games, including the Kings first ever shutout over the Montreal Canadians. Tuesday night’s win over Montreal, in which the Kings throttled the first place Canadians in Montreal 6-0, was perhaps the Kings most impressive win of the season. Los Angeles scored two goals in the first period and four in the second to put the game away early. Tyler Toffoli continued his stellar play with his 8th goal of the season while Anze Kopitar notched his 9th goal of the year. Following the impressive victory in Montreal the Kings traveled to Toronto to take on the Maple Leafs in a back-to-back on Wednesday night. Jones was impressive in goal again, stopping 38 of the 39 Toronto shots on goal. Jeff Carter and Kyle Clifford picked up third period goals to put the game away. Jones won again, his fourth victory in four career starts. The Kings had two days rest before making the trip north to Ottawa for a game with the Senators. The Kings jumped on top of the Senators with three goals in the first period and never looked back to run their win streak to six. Anze Kopitar had two goals for Los Angeles and now has eleven on the season. Martin Jones stopped 37 shots in the victory. The rookie is now 5-0 in five career starts with just a 0.99 goals against average.

The Week Ahead: The Kings return home for three games this coming week versus the Edmonton Oilers, San Jose Sharks and Colorado Avalanche. The big question for Los Angeles is when they can expect their star goaltender, Jonathon Quick back. It’s a testament to their depth that they haven’t missed a beat with Ben Scrivens and Martin Jones in goal. Quick is still a few weeks away from returning, but the club did announce that he’ll be available for the United States when the winter Olympics kick off in early February.

Where they stand: The Kings have the third best record in the Western Conference, which is also good for the third best record in the National Hockey League. Los Angeles’s loss in Chicago on Sunday dropped them to give points behind the Blackhawks for the top record in hockey. They are part of a tight four-team race in the brutal Pacific Division. Anaheim, Los Angeles San Jose and Vancouver are bunched within four points of each other at the top.By:Chris Michaels

ABOUT THE KINGS (39-27-13): Brad Richardson is filling in admirably for Jeff Carter, who is nursing an ankle injury. Richardson tallied twice and captain Dustin Brown also scored in Los Angeles’ 4-3 shootout loss to Minnesota on Saturday. Anze Kopitar, who has collected 21 points in his last 17 games, recorded a goal and an assist on Friday. All-Star Jonathan Quick sat out versus Minnesota, but turned aside 13 of 14 shots Friday to improve to 6-1-3 in his career versus Edmonton.

Los Angeles Kings 2012 Playoffs?

With 5 games remaining in the regular season for the Los Angeles Kings, the playoff race is as tight as ever and every point is incredibly valuable. Right now the race in the Pacific division for the division crown is between 4 different teams. The Dallas Stars with 89 points, the Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks with 88 points, and the Phoenix Coyotes with 87 points. Currently it appears 3 of these 4 teams will make the playoffs with 1 of them earning the 3 seed and home ice advantage in the first round thanks to winning the division.

The Kings have a very favorable schedule in the home stretch as they face cellar dwellers Edmonton Oilers, Minnesota Wild, and Edmonton again before taking on the Sharks in their final 2 games of the season. The Sharks will finish off the season playing only division rivals as they will face the Phoenix Coyotes once and Dallas Stars and Los Angeles Kings twice which should help create some parity in points in the division. The Dallas Stars have a very tough schedule as they will face division leaders Vancouver and St. Louis before the season ends and Phoenix also has to face the St. Louis Blues once before the season ends. The Kings definitely do have the schedule on their side to close out the season and should be able to make it into the playoffs. The question is will it be as a 3, 7, or 8 seed. If the Kings miss out on the playoffs however, they will nobody to blame but themselves.

Barrys Tickets will have Kings Tickets for all 2012 Kings Playoff Games for both home and away games.
