Martin Jones make 18 saves on 20 shots in the Kings 4-2 loss to Edmonton on Tuesday.

Jones' start in a crucial must win game will be questioned by many after the end result. It was a second half of a back-to-back game set for the Kings though and in most cases starting the backup is the right thing to do. In his defense, Jones was not the reason the team lost but wasn't part of the solution either on this night. Despite posting a solid 2.09 GAA and .906 save percentage, Jones has not earned a win since Jan.12 over Toronto.

Martin Jones will get the start on Tuesday night against the Edmonton Oilers.

The Kings come into the match trailing the Jets for the final Wild Card spot by just a point, with the Wild leading by only two more. Jones for his part holds a 4-4-2 record with 26 goals against on 286 combined shots in 14 games this season. Jones has stopped all 41 pucks the Oilers have sent his way across both of his career starts against them.
Apr 7 - 9:04 PM

Martin Jones saw his first action in almost a month as coach Darryl Sutter put him between the pipes for the final two periods Saturday.

Sutter pulled Jonathan Quick after the first in which the Kings were down 2-0 to the Wild. Jones faced only 10 shots and gave up one goal in a 4-1 loss. He has not started since February 27 and with the Kings in a huge battle for the final playoff spot in the West, do not expect to see him in goal in the regular season, barring an injury or the Kings clinching a spot in the post-season.

Martin Jones made 28 saves in the Kings' 4-2 loss to Ducks on Friday night.

The loss has an extra layer of sting as the Kings led 2-0 going into the third period before three unanswered goals on just eight shots, plus an empty-netter. Fortunately, they didn't submit any ground to Calgary who lost in regulation on Long Island. The loss drops Jones' record to 4-4-2 with 25 goals against in a dozen games this season.
Feb 28 - 1:10 AM

Martin Jones is projected to start for Los Angeles on Friday.

It will be Jones' first appearance since Jan. 14. He has a 2.20 GAA and .908 save percentage in 11 games this season.
Feb 27 - 4:13 PM

Martin Jones (back) has been moved to the injured reserve list.

The Kings activated Robyn Regehr (hand), so the Jones move was to free up a roster spot for that. Jones might be back shortly after the All-Star break.
Jan 19 - 5:07 PM

Martin Jones missed practice on Saturday as well as the game with back spasms.

The Kings were forced to recall Jean-Francois Berube from Manchester of the AHL as they required a backup for Jonathan Quick. Jones has a 4-3-2 record with a 2.20 GAA and a .908 save percentage. With the All-Star break starting on Thursday and the Kings having only two games remaining until then, it makes sense to give Jones the rest of the time off to recover and hopefully he will be fine when play resumes on January 28th as the Kings host Chicago.
Jan 18 - 5:31 AM

Martin Jones was not at the Kings' morning skate on Saturday.

Jones skipped the morning practice because of an illness. It is entirely possible that the Kings will place their backup goaltender on injured reserve. Jones has a 4-3-2 record with a 2.20 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage. He is one of the better backup goaltenders in the NHL.
Jan 17 - 3:20 PM

Martin Jones did the rare return for a goalie as he was pulled early in the second period only to return to start the second period. Overall he stopped 10-of-13 shots faced.

Jones allowed three goals on eight shots to start this game and was pulled in favor of Jonathan Quick only to return as Quick wasn't much better. Quick gave up two goals on seven shots and it seems that head coach Darryl Sutter doesn't know where to go with this goal-tending right now in LA. Strangely enough, Quick took the loss in this contest. Jones has normally been a very reliable spot starter with 2.20 goals-against-average and .908 save percentage.
Jan 14 - 11:58 PM

Martin Jones will be the starting netminder Wednesday night against the Devils.

Jones will start his second consecutive game and look to win back to back starts for the Kings. The Kings will ride the hot hand as Jones is coming off a 19 save shutout on January 12th against the Leafs. This will be Jones' 11th game of the season and he will look to improve his already impressive 2.07 goals-against-average and .916 save percentage.
Jan 14 - 8:36 PM

Martin Jones was the first goalie off the ice Wednesday.

That makes him the probable starter to face New Jersey. Jones posted a 19-save shutout against Toronto on Monday to give him a .916 save percentage and a 2.07 goals-against average in 10 appearances this season.
Jan 14 - 1:48 PM

Martin Jones is the fastest goaltender to record seven shutouts in modern day NHL history.

Jones only needed to play in 29 games to accomplish that feat. Steve Mason previously held the record with seven shutouts in his first 32 contests. Jones has had a great start to his career, but Jonathan Quick remains the Kings' undisputed starting goaltender. Short of a trade or a major injury, Jones' fantasy value will continue to be limited by his lack of playing time.
Jan 13 - 10:57 AM

Martin Jones was exceptional in Los Angeles' 2-0 win over Toronto.

Jones only had to make 19 saves, but the Maple Leafs did get their share of scoring opportunities in the game. The 25-year-old has played well for the most part this season, but he's only started 10 games playing behind Jonathan Quick. Jones' record improves to 4-3-2 this season, and he has a 2.07 goals-against-average to go along with a .916 save percentage. Jones has recorded seven shutouts in only 29 career games.
Jan 13 - 1:21 AM

Martin Jones is projected to start against Toronto on Monday.

Jones was the first goalie off the ice Monday morning, which is why he's being penciled in to play between the pipes. He hasn't started in a game since Dec. 12. He has a 2.32 GAA and .908 save percentage in nine contests this season.
