The Minnesota Wild Continue To Win

from Michael Russo of The Athletic, Mats Zuccarello is pretty exceptional in the shootout, but the veteran wasn’t playing for a stinkin’ shootout Saturday night. With six seconds left in overtime, Zuccarello was skating with the puck at center ice. He would have been well in his right to chip the puck in and extend 65 minutes of hockey into a one-on-one skills contest with the Los Angeles Kings. Instead, Zuccarello proved that six seconds was enough time to execute one more perfec...

Wild’s Penalty Kill Getting a Lot of Practice and It Shows

The Minnesota Wild have been spending a lot of time in the penalty box in this short season so far. There are a couple of players that seem to have trouble staying out of the box and have racked up some high numbers for such a short time. The Wild have gotten lucky they haven’t been burned by taking so many penalties and owe a lot of credit to their penalty kill for being so great this season. Wild’s Penalty Kill by the Numbers Typically, the Wild are known for and have always had one of...

Reinvigorated Kings will try to keep win streak going against Blues

Coasting atop the wave of a four-game swell, the Kings will seek their fifth and possibly sixth consecutive victories on a swing through St. Louis with games against the Blues on Monday and Wednesday. Fresh off a two-game sweep of the Arizona Coyotes, the Kings’ veterans have been reinvigorated this season. Center Anze Kopitar is tied for eighth in scoring and sixth in assists league-wide.

Kings’ road ahead littered with possibilities, challenges

A blend of possibilities and challenges lie ahead for the Kings as they welcome players back to the lineup, seek to extend their win streak to a season-best three games and travel for their longest scheduled road trip of the season while still mostly looking up in the standings. “Probably our toughest road trip of the season lies ahead, the six games is as long as it’s gonna get,” Kings coach Todd McLellan said. “The teams we’re going to play right now are playing really well.” The Kings will fa...

Do the Kings have a goalie controversy brewing?

As the Kings navigate a campaign fraught with shifting schedules, rotating personnel and intense rivalries, they might now also have something of a goaltending controversy on their hands. The incumbent No.1 goalie Jonathan Quick – he of two Stanley Cups, an Olympic silver medal and a Conn Smythe Trophy – had played roughly one period in the Kings’ previous five games, and statistically had been outperformed by challenger Cal Petersen. Quick, 35, and Petersen, 26, are not only separated generatio...

Kings seek momentum against a Wild team coming off lengthy break

More hurry-up-and-wait moments awaited the Kings, who won big on Thursday but then had four days of downtime rather than an opportunity to gather steam. The Kings will confront the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night at Staples Center, trying to build on the decisive victory over the San Jose Sharks that snapped their five-game losing streak. “None of us should be talking about being rusty,” Kings coach Todd McLellan said. “We’ve had three practices and we’ve been able to maintain our game pace, whe...

Kings dodge disaster with Drew Doughty back in lineup

Having lost five consecutive games and potentially facing the prospect of losing a fifth regular player, this time their perennial leader in time on ice, the Kings needed some good news. Between their games with San Jose on Tuesday and Thursday, the Kings found out that defenseman Drew Doughty did not sustain a serious injury. He blocked a shot off his forearm Tuesday night, then left the game and did not practice Wednesday. There was a collective sigh of relief – among fans if not the Kings’ co...

Kings look to trusted, steady Alex Iaffalo to stabilize lineup

Seeking to halt a four-game pointless streak, the Kings looked to the familiar top line of Anze Kopitar, Dustin Brown and Alex Iafallo. The trio has skated apart at times this season, but they have been reunited in an effort to stabilize the lineup. Against Vegas on Sunday, Iafallo set up Kopitar for a goal in the opening minute. They had sound shifts early Tuesday, Iafallo’s stretch pass hitting Kopitar in stride to create the Kings’ first goal in a game they trailed 2-0. Kopitar and Brown have...
