Drew Doughty scored a goal and registered an assist in the Kings' 5-2 win over Winnipeg on Thursday.

Doughty has nine goals and 41 points in 73 contests this season. He's reached the 40-point mark for the third consecutive campaign and fifth time in his career. He'll still likely fall behind his 2015-16 mark of 51 points though.

Ben Bishop allowed two goals on 19 shots in picking up a win for the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday against Winnipeg.

It was the first win he's picked up for the Kings since coming over in a deadline deal from Tampa Bay. He's had three quality starts since coming to Hollywood though. His numbers over the season have been fairly decent with a 2.54 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage in 37 appearances.

Anze Kopitar scored on the power-play and picked up an assist in the Kings' 5-2 win over Winnipeg on Thursday.

Jonathan Quick gave up two goals on 31 shots Monday night as the Kings lost 2-0 to the Oilers.

The Oilers were on their game in the first; 15 of their 31 shots came in this period as well as both of their goals. As the pace settled down, Quick blocked 10 in the second as the Kings went on the offensive and out-shot the Oilers by nine. Quick was perfect against six shots in the third, but Cam Talbot was stingy at the other end of the ice and recorded the shutout.

Jarome Iginla made four shots on goal Monday night as the Kings lost 2-0 to the Oilers.

Iginla was brought in from the Avalanche to provide some excitement. In eight games with the new club, he scored three goals and one assist, but he found another way to get the adrenalin pumping Monday. Iginla squared off with Patrick Maroon at the end of the first and again as soon as they were released from the sin bin in the second for a total of seven Penalty Infraction Minutes.

Andy Andreoff and Kevin Gravel appear to be healthy scratches for the Kings for their matchup against the Oilers.

According to line rushes, Jordan Nolan and Brayden McNabb will tag in for the duo. Andreoff has just two points in 32 games this season and is strictly a depth forward. Nick Shore (upper-body) will also serve as a scratch for the Kings.
Mar 20 - 8:44 PM

Jonathan Quick will get the start in goal for the Kings when they take on the Oilers on Monday.

After missing a huge chunk of the season, Quick has an impressive 5-1-1 record with a 2.23 goals against average and .921 save percentage. He has an extraordinary 19-1-5 career record against the Oilers with a 1.73 goals against average and .935 save percentage.
Mar 20 - 8:38 PM

The Los Angeles Kings have not allowed a power play goal on the road since January 21.

Even the one on January 21 could be overlooked as John Tavares scored into the empty net. The Kings have been exceptional of late on the penalty kill as they have given up only four goals on their last 65 attempts while shorthanded, the best in the NHL. There are plenty of problems in Los Angeles but penalty killing is not one of them.
Mar 20 - 7:32 AM

Anze Kopitar scored his 10th goal of the season in the Kings loss to Calgary on Sunday.

Kopitar, who has 44 points in 65 games this season, is now on a three game points streak and has eight points in eight games this month.
Mar 20 - 12:57 AM

Ben Bishop made 14 saves on 16 shots in the Kings' 5-2 loss to Calgary on Sunday.

Bishop came in to relieve Jonathan Quick in the first period after he allowed two early goals. Bishop fared better, but ultimately allowed the game winner and thus his record falls to 16-14-5 this season with a 2.56 goals against average and .910 save percentage.
