Dustin Brown is looking forward to Thursday's rematch against the St. Louis Blues.

The Blues scored four unanswered goals in the third period to earn a 5-2 victory over Los Angeles on Tuesday. "I think if you're not excited about playing tomorrow, after what happened in St. Louis, then we have bigger issues," Brown said. "For me, I'm excited that we get to play them again. Especially the way they beat us and how the third period transpired last game. Like I said, if you're not excited to play them again, there's bigger issues." Kings coach Darryl Sutter pointed to the team's penalty kill as an area they need to improve upon going into this game. St. Louis capitalized on two of its three power-play opportunities on Tuesday.

Justin Williams had an assist in a 5-2 loss Tuesday night.

Kings coach Darryl Sutter needs more from goaltender Jonathan Quick.

Quick stopped just 18 of 22 shots in a 5-2 loss to St. Louis on Tuesday. Los Angeles had a 2-1 lead going into the third period, but Quick allowed three goals on seven shots in the final 20 minutes. "It's not the same team. It's quite a bit different team on the back end," Sutter said. "We've said it all along. We need great goaltending." It's also worth noting that the Kings fired just one shot on goal in the third period, so there's plenty of blame to go around for this collapse.

Marian Gaborik felt good in Los Angeles' 4-3 shootout loss to Toronto on Sunday.

Gaborik has been in and out of the lineup this season due to an upper-body injury. That's slowed him down even when he has played, but Gaborik took a step in the right direction by scoring on Sunday. "It's just been unfortunate," Gaborik said of his injury problems. "I've been hurt, then get I back and it takes a little bit of time to get back. Then I get hurt again. Hopefully I will maintain to stay healthy and build on (Sunday). Make sure the starts to the games are there and get my legs under me and use them. That's my biggest thing."

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Hector M. Guzman has decided that there's enough evidence in the case against Slava Voynov to warrant a trial on the charge of corporal injury to a spouse with great bodily injury.

Voynov had his preliminary hearing on Monday and he will be arraigned on Dec. 29. According to a police officer, Voynov's wife claimed her husband had repeatedly choked, punched, and kicked her. He also allegedly pushed her into a flat screen television. Voynov's wife needed eight stitches to close a wound over her eye and she had bruising on her neck, according to the police. They also found a lot of blood in the bedroom. Lead prosecutor, Frank Dunnick, believes that "there's evidence to suggest prior domestic violence."
