LA Kings open practice

Los Angeles Kings open Training Camp

LA Kings Staples Center gameThe Los Angeles Kings opened training camp yesterday, the start of a grueling ten-month season in which they look to defend their second Stanley Cup title in two seasons. With the vast majority of their roster returning the Kings will be looking to accomplish something that’s hasn’t been done in the NHL in over fifteen years—win back to back Stanley Cups. The last club to accomplish the feat was the Detroit Red Wings in 1997-1998.

The Kings will have a big target on their backs, with several of the other Western Conference contenders, including the Chicago Blackhawks, St. Louis Blues and Colorado Avalanche making offseason moves intended to upgrade the roster. Due to wise cap management by General Manager Dean Lombardi, the Kings didn’t face the typical post-championship exodus that many teams deal with. In addition to keeping the core of the roster the Kings were able to lock up Marian Gaborik on a longer-term deal. The fleet forward was a major part of the Kings offensive surge in the postseason, and should be a major component of their offensive attack during the upcoming season.

NHL LA Kings GoalieGoaltender Jonathan Quick, such a vital part of both of the Stanley Cup winning teams, will miss the beginning of training camp after wrist surgery. Kyle Clifford and Jarrett Stoll will join Quick on the sidelines in the early part of training camp. After a weekend of practice the Kings will kick off the exhibition season on Monday night when a split squad takes on the Arizona Coyotes. The first exhibition game will take place just sixteen days before the Kings kick off the regular season when they face the San Jose Sharks on October 8.

So can they repeat?

Los Angeles had an immensely grueling playoff run a year ago, going a perfect 8-0 in postseason elimination games, including defeating the San Jose Sharks, Anaheim Ducks and Chicago Blackhawks in seven game series. In their two title runs the veteran Kings roster has developed a reputation for performing in the clutch, a key component of last year’s title which includes coming back to defeat the San Jose Sharks after falling behind by three games in the series.

Stanley Cup LA Kings

STANLEY CUP

A return to normalcy should benefit the Kings, provided they can stay healthy. Two seasons ago the NHL played a shortened season due to the lockout. Last year the Kings dealt with Jonathan Quick missing nearly two months of the season due to a groin injury, and the Sochi Olympic break. The big question is whether or not the Kings can finish in the top half of the Western Conference. In both title winning seasons the Kings finished in the back half of the conference, 8th and 6th in the respective seasons. Without home ice advantage they’ve still managed to make title runs due to their veteran grit and ability to win on the road. If the Kings can get off to a fast start and stay healthy, they may have the luxury of defending the Stanley Cup with home ice advantage this season.

LA Kings Preview 2014-15 NHL Season

LA Kings TicketsThe Los Angeles Kings have become the perennial cup contender their fan base has long dreamed of by winning Lord Stanley’s trophy two of the past three years while having a core of players both in their prime and under contract for the foreseeable future.

General Manager, Dean Lombardi, has created a locker room of talented focused characters surrounded by an organization built on a foundation of accountability. He spoke to the team camaraderie at the victory parade rally this past June:

“The franchise has now evolved to another level.[The fans], myself and my staff are now super-charged by another motivating force. Simply stated, to watch this group of men make a commitment to themselves, as individuals, to be the best they can be, and most importantly, their commitment to each other, that touches all of our souls and transcends their sport.”

Dean has become a cap magician who is now emulated by other franchises. He has an uncanny ability to target players who possess “team first” DNA coupled with on-ice success. Yet, under the new cap of $69 million for the 2014-15 season, Lombardi has put together a complete 23 player roster signed at $68,791,894 1 with other teams like Chicago, mulling over tough decisions in order to balance their budget.

Tickets for la kings gamesThe Kings stand pat with nearly all of their 2013-14 teams returning to defend their title. They have core players such as Dustin Brown, Drew Doughty, Mike Richards and Jeff Carter locked up well through the latter part of the decade and last year’s spring addition of Marian Gaborik, has blossomed in to a 7-year cap friendly $4.875M.

Gaborik could have signed with other teams for bigger money but his chemistry with Anze Kopitar and his belief in the organization’s dedication to each other boasts that the Los Angeles Kings possesses the aptitude for continued success.

Jeff Carter paralleled his homecoming to Gaborik’s:

“You know what? The same thing happened for me when I came here. That’s what these guys do here. They teach you to do the right things, and I’m just proud to be a part of it.”

Though the path to Jeff Carter and the LA Kings first Stanley Cup Championship in 2012 had exalted such dominance; the journey of the 2014 Los Angeles Kings was a living testimonial of how perseverance and mental toughness are the bone and marrow of professional sports. Their resiliency forged broken and bruised bones into Stanley Cup silver.

They were the first team in NHL history to win three playoff games 7’s on the road.
They were crowned the ”Kings of California” by resurrection from an 0-3 series deficit against the San Jose Sharks- a fete only done by 3 other teams in NHL history- and by ousting the Anaheim Ducks in a 7-game display of back-and-forth offense.

Despite trailing 3-times, they took their prior playoffs season redemption against the Chicago Blackhawks by beating them in a thrilling overtime game 7.

In the Stanley Cup Final, they closed out 3 of their 4 wins in overtime against, all-world goaltender, Henrik Lundqvist and the New York Rangers, to again, ascend to their throne.

They were able to muster enough perseverance and resolve to crown their Stanley Cup journey with
another Championship.

So what does that mean for the expectations of the 2014-15 Los Angeles Kings?

The expectation is not a secret. The Kings must defend their crown and become the first team in the cap era to win back-to-back championships. Unless you count them as back to back FULL-season Champions (get your shirt via royalhalf.com).

Joking aside…

There is no doubt that the Kings have proven that they are a franchise built for playoff success.
However, during the regular season, inconsistencies in play and scoring prowess are areas the Kings will want to improve on.

In the past three seasons, the Kings have finished 26th (2013-14), 10th (2013) and 29th (2011-12) in goals-for amongst 30 NHL teams. The re-emergence of Jeff Carter (27G, 23A) and the addition of Marian Gaborik bolster an already fearless offense of Anze Kopitar, Dustin Brown, Justin Williams, Mike Richards, Trevor Lewis, Dwight King and their two budding rookies, Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson.

It’s hard to predict that adding a single player will nourish their regular season scoring drought, but despite sparse scoring how do they still manage to make the playoffs and bring two championships to the city of Los Angeles?

What gives, or better yet, what doesn’t give?

Their defense.

The reigning Jennings Trophy winners are a stingy team. Last year they allowed the league’s lowest average of 2.05 goals against per game.

Drew Doughty, Jake Muzzin, Slava Voynov, Matt Greene, Robyn Regehr (if healthy) and, Stanley Cup goal clincher, Alec Martinez, account for their defense. The loss of veteran blue-liner, Willie Mitchell, to cap space and ultimately free agency, is a point of interest or concern, depending how you want to interpret it.

Mitchell’s absence may provide the opportunity for young talent like 6’4 Brayden McNabb to crack the roster, or allow the Kings to option other players with more NHL experience such as Jeff Schultz (re-signed) to fill in for Regehr or in back to back game situations.

NHL LA Kings GoalieThe play of goaltender, Jonathan Quick, never ceases to amaze. Though his numbers in 2013-14 (2.07GAA, .915sv %) found him 14th in the league, there is no doubt that the confidence he has in the team in front of him is shared by his teammates. (Reminisce about unbelievable saves from 2013-14 NHL here courtesy of KingsVision).

Martin Jones showed that he is more than capable to back up Jon Quick, with his 7-game winning streak and .934sv% and 1.81 GAA in 19 games played.

Finally, at the helm is head coach Darryl Sutter with returning assistant coaches John Stevens, Davis Payne and goaltending coach, Bill Ranford. Multiple NHL teams inquired about John Stevens for a head coaching position, yet he decided to stay in LA. The belief in the system in place in Los Angeles has everybody drinking the water. It’s not a matter of luck or fortune. It’s about attitude and commitment.

I’m reminded of a quote from Darryl Sutter from 2012 when asked by a reporter whether the LA Kings were a team of ‘destiny’, where he replied, “What’s that?” The coach makes no excuses for what he sees transpire on the ice.

LA Kings NHLIn 2014-15, who knows what records will be broken, which players will become legends or if the Kings will hoist Lord Stanley even that much higher. I do know that with this Kings team, you have to expect the unexpected and that is another piece of their history, their armor.

The Kings season begins October 8, 2014 where they will raise their second banner and simultaneously pour salt in the open wound of the San Jose Sharks.

LA Kings Force Game 7 Against Sharks

LA Kings Vs Sharks Tickets

SHARKS VS KINGS

After a third consecutive victory the Los Angeles Kings are on the brink of accomplishing what only eight other NHL teams have done, coming back from a 3-0 deficit to win a seven-game NHL playoff series. Justin Williams scored twice to propel the Kings to a 4-1 victory over the visiting San Jose Sharks, evening the opening round NHL playoff series at three, and setting up a highly anticipate game seven on Wednesday night. The two teams will play a seventh game in a playoff series for the third time in four seasons in one of the best playoff rivalries in recent history.

SHARKS BENCH

Tied at one heading into the third period Williams scored his second goal of the game at the 11:56 mark. Williams was able to knock home a loose puck that wasn’t quite controlled by Sharks goaltender Alex Stalock, much to the chagrin of Sharks head coach Todd McLellan. The Sharks head coach thought Stalock, making his first start in the series, had sufficiently controlled the puck. In a comment indicative of how desperate things have become for San Jose McLellan said after the game that “We (Sharks) got cheated”. The two teams were deadlocked in a tight 1-1 battle at the time. Replays were inconclusive, but did indicate that the puck wasn’t completely controlled. Trying to corral the puck as it slipped behind Stalock, Sharks defender Matt Irwin may have accidentally knocked it in. The decision to start Stalock was predicated by the poor play of Sharks goaltender Antti Niemi. After solid play in the first three games of the season the playoff inconsistency that Niemi has shown in years past, especially against the Kings, returned at the worst time possible. Stalock kept it close, but after the Williams go ahead goal the Kings were able to blow the contest open. As many predicted goaltending is becoming a story in the series. After a slow start in the first three games Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick is proving once again that he’s one of the elite netminders in the NHL. Quick has allowed just one goal in the last two games of the series, won by Los Angeles with a combined 7-1 score.

After Williams scored his second goal of the game to give the Kings the lead for good, Anze Kopitar scored two goals in a one minute and fifteen seconds span to put the game away for good. Kopitar notched his second and third goals of the series and has now scored in all six games of the series. Kopitar provided the assist on Williams’ second goal, giving the Kings captain three points. Drew Doughty added two assists for Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Kings Tickets

MIKE RICHARDS

The Sharks played without top defender Marc-Edouard Vlasic, out with an upper body injury. Vlasic’s availability will be a big question mark as the two teams head into game seven. Who Todd McLellan plays in net will also be a big factor. Stalock is an unproven playoff performer with just 27 regular season appearances under his belt. The decision to stay with Stalock or go back to Niemi will be a big storyline as the series moves into its final game.

Game seven is Wednesday night at the Shark Tank in San Jose. The winner will move on to the second round to face the Anaheim Ducks.

LA Kings Drop Game One To Sharks

LA Kings Vs Sharks Tickets

SHARKS VS KINGS

In order to take back home ice advantage and bring the series back to STAPLES Center with the opportunity to take a commanding lead the Los Angeles Kings need to win one of the first two games of their opening Western Conference series in San Jose. The NHL playoffs are all about quick starts and momentum and as the road team statement games are important. Unfortunately for the Kings the opening game couldn’t have been more painful. Feeding off the energy of a capacity home crowd the San Jose Sharks stormed out to a 5-0 lead as they utterly dominated Jonathan Quick and the Kings.

The game was the polar opposite of last season’s second round series in which the Sharks struggled to solve Quick. Los Angeles ended up winning that series in seven, with home ice advantage being a big component. In a series that has been incredibly evenly matched, last night’s game was a surprise. The surprising loss sets up an extremely important second game of the series. In order to capture momentum the Kings will need a big performance and will need to flip the recent history between the two clubs. Over the past two seasons 17 of the last 18 matchups have been won by the home team.

LA Kings Tickets Staples Center

KINGS

The good thing for Los Angeles is they have a proven playoff performer in net with Quick, who will be motivated to make up for an unusual subpar performance. Quick gave up three first period goals for the first time in his NHL playoff career. Quick was pulled for rookie Martin Jones in the third and the Kings made a valiant attempt to storm back into the game with three goals, by Jake Muzzin, Slava Voynov and Trevor Lewis. The three tallies made the score 5-3 before Brent Burns put home an empty netter to set the final margin of 6-3.

San Jose Sharks Tickets

SHARKS

In game two the Kings will look to recapture the momentum they had in the third period, while standing up to the Sharks physical style. San Jose played near perfect hockey in the first two periods, specifically keeping Drew Doughty off balance with physical play. San Jose also received solid goaltending from Antti Niemi, a major question mark heading into the series. Look for the veteran Kings to bounce back and eliminate some of the sloppy play that turned into odd man rushes and offense from the Sharks third and fourth lines.

Game two of the series is set for Sunday night at the SAP Center in San Jose, with the series making its way to STAPLES Center for games three and four on Tuesday and Thursday of next week. If the Kings can steal game two, behind a solid performance from Quick, they’ll be well positioned to get right back into the series.

Even with losses in four of their last five games the Los Angeles Kings held on and earned the 6th position in the NHL playoffs, finishing two points on top of the Minnesota Wild. The Kings 6th place finish has set up one of the most eagerly anticipated first round playoff matchups, a rematch of last year’s second round series between the Kings and the San Jose Sharks. Last season the Kings defeated the Sharks in seven spirited games, a series were the home team won each matchup. By virtue of an outstanding regular season the Sharks will have home ice advantage.

LA Kings Vs Sharks

KINGS VS SHARKS

Season Series: The Kings held the advantage in the season series between the two teams, three games to two. The Kings won one of the three games played in San Jose, a 1-0 shutout by Jonathan Quick on January 27th. The Sharks won the last game between the two teams, a 2-1 win on April 3. Other than a 4-1 Kings victory on December 19th all of the games were decided by a goal, indicative of just how closely matched the two teams are. The tight games in the season series mirror last year’s playoff matchup in which all seven games of the series were decided by just a lone goal.

San Jose Sharks- who to watch: The Sharks feature a deep roster of veterans that has been together through several playoff appearances. The aging combination of Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau are still strong performers along with young stars such as Joe Pavelski, Logan Couture and Brent Burns. Pavelski led the Sharks in scoring this season with 41 goals, while Marleau contributed 33. Right Wing Brent Burns, a former defenseman, and Couture give the Sharks tremendous size and speed up front with both scoring over 20 goals this season.

Kings Vs Sharks Staples Center

KINGS Vs SHARKS

Why the Kings will win: The Sharks had a better regular season, but the NHL playoffs are a whole new season and the Los Angeles Kings are built for the playoffs. Stanley Cups are won with good goaltending and the Kings have an advantage in net with Jonathan Quick. Quick has proven time and time again that he performs best in pressure situations and should have the advantage over Antii Niemi. Niemi had a strong overall regular season but has struggled in the month of April. The Sharks will need their veteran goaltender to be in strong form. Offensively the Kings have benefited from the acquisition of Marian Gaborik, a trade deadline pickup from the Columbus Blue Jackets. Garborik has scored 15 points in 18 games as a member of the Kings, giving their offense an additional component. The key for Los Angeles is earning a victory in San Jose to wrest home ice advantage away from the Sharks.

Prediction: Kings in six.

Who Will The LA Kings Play Opening Round

LA Kings Tickets

KINGS

With the NHL playoffs nearing and the races tightening the Los Angeles Kings may have to wait until the last day of the regular season to determine who their first round opponent will be. The Kings are likely locked into the sixth playoff position, but with a logjam at the top of the conference standings the Kings first round opponent is still very much undecided. If the season ended today the Kings would face the San Jose Sharks in the opening round. The Sharks are currently third in the conference, a point behind the Anaheim Ducks and a point on top of the Colorado Avalanche. Just a point behind the Avalanche and two points behind the Sharks, are the defending Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks.

Here’s a look at the potential Kings opening round opponents:

Kings Vs Sharks Tickets

SHARKS

San Jose Sharks: The Kings and Sharks have played five times this season with four of the five games decided by just a single goal. The Kings hold the advantage in the season series, three games to two. Two of the games have gone into overtime, with the Kings winning the opening game between the two teams in overtime and the Sharks winning the second game via a shootout. The two teams played a hotly contested second round playoff series last year, with the Kings coming out on top by virtue of having home ice advantage. Not a single road team won a game in the seven game series. The home ice advantage could prove significant for the Sharks this year who have been outstanding on home ice this year.

Kings vs Avalanche Tickets

AVALANCHE

Colorado Avalanche: The Colorado Avalanche have been a massive surprise this season under first year head coach Patrick Roy, the leading candidate for coach of the year in the NHL this season. The Avalanche has been on fire of late with a six-game winning streak to make a late run toward the top of the Western Conference. The Avalanche has a solid group of talented young forwards, led by center Matt Duchene and winger Gabriel Landeskog. The most exciting Avalanche player is eighteen-year-old center Nathan MacKinnon, the top overall pick in last year’s NHL entry draft. The Avalanche has played two fewer games than the Sharks and Blackhawks.

Kings Blackhawks Tickets

BLACKHAWKS

Chicago Blackhawks: Sitting in fifth place in the conference, but just two behind the third place Sharks, are the defending Stanley Cup champions. After a period of rough play the Blackhawks have rebounded of late and are in the midst of a three-game winning streak. Chicago has decided to sit their captain and best player Jonathan Toews for the remaining of the regular season due to an upper body injury. The Kings and Blackhawks met in the playoffs each of the past two seasons. Los Angeles defeated Chicago in 2012 on their way to a Stanley Cup title. The Blackhawks returned the favor, defeating the Kings in five games last June on their way to a title. Chicago is the odds on favorite again to represent the Western Conference in the Stanley Cup final.

Kings Vs Ducks Tickets

DUCKS

Anaheim Ducks: There’s an outside chance the Kings could face the Ducks in the opening round, if Anaheim somehow loses the second seed. After leading the Western Conference for the majority of the regular season the Ducks were recently surpassed by the St. Louis Blues. With a game in hand and just three points behind the Blues the Ducks still have an opportunity to earn home ice. If the Ducks somehow fall to third they’ll set up what will be a much anticipated opening round series.

The LA Kings Arent Playing Like It

Kings Vs Ducks Tickets

Kings Vs Ducks

In a week where they badly needed to pick up some key victories the Los Angeles Kings are mired in perhaps their toughest stretch of the season, going winless over the past week to run their overall losing streak to five games. After losing consecutive road games in Boston and Columbus Los Angeles returned to Sourthern California and were swept in back-to-back games by their LA rivals, the league leading Anaheim Ducks. The second of the back-to-back contests was the much anticipated outdoor game at Dodger Stadium, taken by the Ducks 3-0.

Kings Vs Ducks Tickets

Kings Vs Ducks

Week Recap: Monday night the Kings lost a tough one in Boston to a solid Bruins team. Boston jumped on top 2-0 on first period goals by Brad Marchand and Torey Krug. The Kings fought back to tie the game on goals by Willie Mitchell and Jeff Carter, only to see Marchand score his second goal of the game just 18 seconds after Carter scored to tie the game at 2. The Bruins would hold on to the victory, and the Kings would go on to Columbus for the second half of a back-to-back. The Kings scored the first goal Tuesday night in Columbus on a tally by Dwight King only to see the Blue Jackets score consecutive first period goals by RJ Umberger and Ryan Johansen to go up 2-1. Jeff Carter notched his 20th goal of the season early in the second to tie the game at 2, but the Blue Jackets took control with three consecutive goals to put the game away. Martin Jones had a tough night in goal for the Kings. With three consecutive losses the Kings returned to Southern California for two with Anaheim. The Thursday and Saturday games were a big test and the chance for Los Angeles to make up ground on the NHL leaders. The two games, won by Anaheim via a combined score of 5-1 are an indication of just how strong of a club the Ducks have become. Anaheim is seemingly able to adapt to any opponents style, winning high scoring contests as well as gritty defensive games, like Thursday night at the Honda Center. The Kings were shut out Saturday night by the Ducks Jonas Hiller, putting the Ducks 19 points up on their division rivals.

Kings Schedule this week

Kings Vs

Up next for the Kings: The upcoming schedule doesn’t get any easier for the Kings. Los Angeles travels north to face the San Jose Sharks on Monday night, following by an immediate trip to Phoenix to take on the Coyotes on Tuesday night. They then round out the week by finally returning to STAPLES Center to face Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday and the Philadelpia Flyers on Saturday night. Pittsburgh’s trip to Los Angeles will give Kings fans their lone opportunity to see the universally regarded best player in hockey, Sidney Crosby. The Penguins star is on track to win yet another league MVP award this season.

Where they stand: With 64 points the Kings are in sixth place in the Western Conference, five points behind the Colorado Avalanche and twelve points behind the San Jose Sharks.

The Kings face off against the Ducks two more times at the Staples Center once on March 15th and then again on April 12! All Ducks Vs Kings Tickets have no service fees on any ticket. Chris Michaels

Perfect Week For The Anaheim Ducks

Anaheim Ducks 2013-2014 Season

Anaheim Ducks

With another perfect week of hockey the Anaheim Ducks incredible form continued as they capped the week with a 1-0 shutout victory over the Detroit Red Wings. Anaheim has now won seven consecutive games and an incredible seventeen of their last eighteen games played. Anaheim now has a five point lead on the Chicago Blackhawks for the top overall record in the National Hockey League. They lead the Pacific Division by thirteen points. With Ducks Tickets starting at only $16.00 per ticket with No Service Fees now is a great time to see the NHL’s hottest team!

Anaheim Ducks

Ducks

Week Recap: The Ducks kicked off the week with an impressive 5-2 victory over the Boston Bruins. Anaheim jumped out to a 3-0 lead and never relinquished it in the win. Corey Perry notched his 24th goal of the season while Mathieu Perrault scored two goals. Jonas Hiller was solid in net again in the victory. After defeating the Bruins the Ducks traveled to Nashville for a matchup with the always tough Predators. Nashville scored two goals in the first period to jump out 2-0 before the Ducks roared back to seal the game with four goals in the second period. Ryan Getzlaf scored goals number 21 and 22 while Corey Perry slotted home his 25th of the season. Fresh off a win in Nashville the Ducks traveled to Phoenix where they took on the Coyotes Saturday night. Anaheim knocked off Phoenix behind another second period goal explosion. After Hampus Lindholm scored to tie the game in the first period Sami Vatanen, Dustin Penner and Ryan Getzlaf scored in the second to give Anaheim a commanding lead. Lindholm would score again to give the Ducks a 5-1 lead that would eventually lead to a 5-3 victory. Anaheim then returned home Sunday for a touch back-to-back versus the Detroit Red Wings. The Red Wings received a solid start from Petr Mrazek, starting in place of the injured Jimmy Howard. Mrazek gave up just one goal, a second period score by Andrew Cogliano, but it was enough to earn the victory for Anaheim. Jonas Hiller had 22 saves to earn the shutout and his 14th consecutive victory.

The Week Ahead: The Ducks host the Vancouver Canucks Wednesday night before traveling to Chicago and St. Louis for two key road games on Friday and Saturday. Chicago and St. Louis are in second and third place in the Western Conference, with St. Louis winning 8 of their last ten games. Chicago and St. Louis are a combined 33-6-8 at home. The Blues and Blackhawks will be a tough test for the Ducks. If the Ducks come out unscathed they may be in the driver’s seat for home ice advantage in the playoffs.

Blackhawks Vs Ducks Tickets

Blackhawks Vs Ducks

Where they stand: With 75 points the Ducks are five points up on the Chicago Blackhawks for the top spot in the Western Conference and best record in the National Hockey League.

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
