Tyler Toffoli had an assist in a 5-2 loss to Winnipeg on Sunday.

Toffoli snapped a four-game point drought. He now has 19 goals and 39 points in 56 contests in 2014-15. He's surpassed expectations for this season, but at the same time, he's been very streaky and has consequently endured prolonged cold stretches.
Mar 2 - 10:25 AM

Jonathan Quick was pulled in Sunday's 5-2 loss to Winnipeg.

Quick was pulled after allowing four goals on 21 shots in the contest. The 29-year-old won eight consecutive starts in late-February but he has now lost back-to-back starts. The Kings were down 4-1 when they gave Quick the hook. His record falls to 25-16-10 on the season. Martin Jones entered the game in relief of Quick and he stopped all seven shots he faced in the game.
Mar 1 - 6:52 PM

Jeff Carter scored two goals in Sunday's 5-2 loss to Winnipeg.

Carter got the Kings on the board at the 7:18 mark of the second period and he added another goal late in the third period. The 30-year-old has 20 goals and 48 points in 62 games this season. He has hit the 20-goal mark for the ninth time in his NHL career. Tyler Toffoli assisted on both of Carter's goals.
Mar 1 - 6:45 PM

Jamie McBain and Nick Shore will be healthy scratches in Sunday's game against Winnipeg.

McBain, 27, has no points in his last seven games and just three goals and nine points in 26 contests this season.
Mar 1 - 3:58 PM

Jonathan Quick will be between the pipes on Sunday for the Kings as they take on the Winnipeg Jets.

Quick played on Thursday while Martin Jones played Friday. Quick is 25-16-10 with a 2.35 GAA and a .915 save percentage this season. Start him with confidence.

Brayden McNabb had a goal and five points in 10 February games.

The surprise is that McNabb had only seven shots on goal in the month with six coming in the last four contests. The defenseman has some offensive skills and has a goal and 18 points in 55 games this season. He should be better next season.

Robyn Regehr practiced on Saturday after it looked like he was hurt during Friday's game.

That's good news for the Kings as they can ill afford an injury to a defenseman. He was hit in the wrist area by a shot. Regehr has a new partner on the blueline as he is playing with the recently acquired Andrej Sekera. Regehr has no fantasy value.

Tanner Pearson (broken ankle) may be able to return before the end of the regular season.

When the injury occurred on January 10, it was thought that the first round of the playoffs might be the return date but he is apparently healing a bit faster than first thought. He had 12 goals and four assists in 42 games before the injury.
Mar 1 - 7:14 AM

The Los Angeles Kings have not allowed a power play goal against them since February 12.

The Kings are a perfect 20-for-20 when killing off a penalty and are now 22nd in the NHL at 80.2 percent efficiency, up from 77.8 percent 16 days ago.

Brayden McNabb scored his first goal as a LA King on Friday night to give them a 2-0 lead midway through the game. However, Anaheim would pull away with four unanswered goals in the third for the 4-2 win.

As Anze Kopitar circled the net, he found McNabb all alone at the left point. McNabb proceeded to lace one through heavy traffic for his second career NHL goal, a span of 79 games and 38 months. The young defender now has 18 points in 55 games this season, good for third on a the team among blue liners.

Trevor Lewis opened Friday night's scoring in the first period with his eighth goal of the season, but the Kings eventually fell to the Ducks 4-2.

It was a pretty goal as Lewis bounced off a Francois Beauchemin check, walked out from the left corner, and stuffed it home through a Dustin Brown screen. Lewis continues to build on a career season, and now has 16 points in 52 games thus far.
Feb 28 - 1:15 AM

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

Jamie McBain and Andy Andreoff will be scratched against the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.

McBain has played in half of his 26 games this season since the turn of the calendar, 10 of which in February alone. He's collected two points, four penalty minutes, six hits, and 15 blocks in that time. That is not enough to draw into your fantasy lineup.

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

Derek Forbort has been sent to the AHL Manchester Monarchs.

Forbort didn't end up making his NHL debut during his stint with Los Angeles. The Kings decision to demote Forbot comes after they acquired defenseman Andrej Sekera from Carolina.
