The Los Angeles Kings turned over the puck too much in Game 1 versus San Jose and it resulted in a lot of odd-man rushes.
The Kings practiced Saturday and worked on their transition game. "Just don't get spread out too much," Anze Kopitar said of the adjustments necessary to minimize turnovers. "The support has got to be there coming up the ice. If we don't do that, obviously we get spread out too much. The long plays are harder to make than the 10-foot passes. I think in Game 1, our line got spread out a little too much. We got caught swinging away instead of just supporting. So we've been working on that the last couple days a little bit and we have to carry that into the game tomorrow." Game 2 is on Sunday. Apr 20 - 8:13 AM

The Los Angeles Kings have won seven straight games on the road.

The Kings longest road streak was eight games, established from Dec. 18, 1974 to Jan. 16, 1975. Los Angeles now has a 42-25-6 and is likely to finish third in the Pacific Division, setting up a first round series against either Anaheim or San Jose.

Darryl Sutter now ranks 17th on the all-time games coached list with 1,029.

He surpassed his brother Brian Sutter in the process. Sutter also recently reached the 500 win milestone and has a 502-374-101-52 record after Monday's victory over Philadelphia.

Los Angeles Kings coach Darryl Sutter downplayed the importance of him reaching the 500 win.

Sutter is at 499 career wins going into Thursday's game against Toronto. "I think in today's game the most important part is percentages," Sutter said. "You get extra points now. You get one point, so it's way more important. It's like when you get the thousand game thing, you're able to do it over a long period of time, so that means you can do that. But the winning, the percentages are what's important because at the end of the day, that allows you to be a playoff team, and I'm more into how many playoff games you're in as a coach than anything else. I'd rather have a whole lot of playoff games than anything else. It's the only reason you do it." Sutter would become the 18th coach to reach the 500-win milestone. He also has a 56.3 winning percentage and is tied for 11th on the all-time playoffs wins list.

Darryl Sutter hopes that the NHL won't go to a point system similar to the Olympics.

In the Olympics, three points are awarded for a regulation win, two for an overtime win, and one for an overtime loss. With so many NHL games going to a shootout, it would place a greater emphasis on winning the contest in 60 minutes and diminish the value of consolation points. However, Sutter opposes it because of its potential to mess up the history books. That's fair, but then again, there was a time when the NHL had just a 44-game season and gradually moving that up to 82 had an impact on the history books too. At the end of the day, the NHL's rich history should enhance the game, but - for the sake of argument - if reverence to the past is ever the sole argument against improving the game, then that's a problem.

The Los Angeles Kings ended a slump of 154:43 minutes without a goal on Monday.

Los Angeles still only managed one goal agianst San Jose, but fortunately that was all they needed to win Monday night. "We needed one like this to break out of the slump," Anze Kopitar, who chipped in the game's lone goal, said. "Sometimes you need a game or an opponent like San Jose, a heavy game, playoff-type atmosphere. There was certainly that out there, and we were able to get the two points." That victory ended the Kings' losing streak at five games.
Jan 28 - 9:44 AM

The Los Angeles Kings have scored only 26 goals in their last 15 games.

The Kings are having problems finding the back of the net and have only one point in their last five games as they have fallen to sixth place in the Western Conference.
Jan 26 - 7:21 AM

Kings coach Darryl Sutter was livid when a controversial goal led to a 3-2 shootout loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

Niklas Kronwall fired a shot that appeared to go out of play, only to hit Jonathan Quick in the back and go into the net with less than 27 seconds remaining in regulation time. "Pucks go in the stands, and then they come back in and score? Probably, yeah. Off the net? We've seen that. That's embarrassing for the league," Sutter said. "That's what that is. It doesn't matter if we'd have scored, or if they had scored it. That's embarrassing." Sutter continued to use the word "embarrassing" throughout the remainder of his postgame press conference.

Darryl Sutter coached in his 1,000th NHL game on Saturday.

It's quite the accomplishment for the veteran coach who picked up the win with a nice third period comeback. He is now 487-362-101-50 in his career. Congratulations go out to Darryl on hitting the milestone.
Jan 5 - 8:17 AM

The outdoor game between the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks is 80% sold out.

The contest will be held in Dodger Stadium and take place on Jan. 25. The area where they have been having trouble selling seats at is among those that were priced at $249. They have consequently reduced the price of those tickets.

The Los Angeles Kings have now gone 18 games without allowing a first period goal.

The NHL record book only goes back to the 1989-90 season as far as this record is concerned and the Kings now own the record. Los Angeles is 13-1-4 during the streak as they have shown they are one of the top clubs in the NHL.

Although Los Angeles suffered a 3-2 shootout loss on Wednesday, they tied a franchise record by extending their point streak to 11 games.

The Kings previously reached this mark in 2010-11 and 1973-74. They are 16-6-4 this season, which gives them a seven-point cushion in the battle for a playoff spot.

The Kings extended their point streak to eight games with a 2-1 overtime loss to the New Jersey Devils on Thursday.

Los Angeles longest franchise point streak is 11 games. They're now 15-6-2 this season, which puts them in a tie for the fourth best start in the team's history. Despite that, they currently rank fourth in the Pacific Division, because that division and the Western Conference in general, have been remarkably strong.

The Los Angeles Kings have surrendered nine power-play goals in their opponent's last 26 opportunities.

That drops their penalty killing percentage to 79.4. Although that's not disastrous, killing penalties has been one of the Kings' major strengths in recent years and they obviously don't want to drift away from that. Kings defenseman Willie Mitchell thinks his team has been pressing too much in those situations and needs to take a bit of a step back as a result. The Kings will face the Buffalo Sabres and their anemic offense on Thursday.

Kings coach Darryl Sutter coached against his son Brett for the first time in the NHL.

It was certainly a nice moment for the two, but neither were ready to get too caught up in it all. "I just told him [afterward], I never looked at him at all except on faceoffs," Sutter said. "You know what, I kind of get past all that nostalgia stuff. That's what we do." The Kings ended up with the 2-1 shootout win against the Hurricanes; Brett played just under nine minutes.
