Ottawa Senators vs Los Angeles Kings
LOS ANGELES -- The red-hot Los Angeles Kings will attempt to extend a season-best, six-game winning streak when they oppose the struggling Ottawa Senators on Thursday night at Staples Center.
Los Angeles (18-8-3) used a four-goal third period rally to defeat the visiting Minnesota Wild 5-2 on Tuesday night. Marian Gaborik registered two goals, Anze Kopitar had a goal and two assists, and Drew Doughty posted three assists in support of a 19-save performance by goaltender Jonathan Quick.
The final-period blitz was consistent with Los Angeles' play this season, as the Kings have outscored the opposition 40-13 in the third period. Los Angeles' penchant for starting games slowly reared its head, producing a lethargic 40 minutes against the Wild before the offense kicked into gear.Read More...
