Jonathan Quick allowed two goals on 31 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Quick appeared to have eyes behind the back of his head to somehow reach back and cover up the puck on what would have been a sure goal. Unfortunately, his heroics weren't enough as he has now lost five straight. The veteran goaltender is now one more loss shy of matching his season-high of six straight losses that occurred between Nov. 9-22. His record drops to 19-16-2 with a 2.34 goals against average and a .924 save percentage.

Alex Iafallo scored a goal in a 2-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Iafallo put in a great effort tonight, causing havoc on several shifts and was rewarded with a goal off a rebound from Jake Muzzin's point shot. It's Iafallo's third goal of the year, bringing the undrafted free-agent's point tally to 13 in 44 games. Anze Kopitar also picked up an assist on the Kings' only goal.

Dustin Brown has a hearing scheduled for his hit on Justin Schultz.

That's not surprising. Schultz was already on his knees when Brown smashed him into the boards Thursday night. Brown got a boarding major and a game misconduct as a result of the incident, but he disagreed with the call. "I’m going to close on him," Brown said. "He stumbles, toe picks. I don’t drive through the wall or anything but I also close in on the play. At most it’s probably a two [minute penalty]. I hope he’s OK."

Jake Muzzin recorded an assist in his return from an upper-body injury.

Anze Kopitar registered an assist in the Kings' 3-1 loss to Pittsburgh Thursday night.

Dustin Brown might end up facing supplemental discipline for a hit he delivered to Justin Schultz Thursday night.

Brown smashed Schultz into the boards while Schultz was already down on his knees. That led to Brown getting a boarding major and a game misconduct. It's possible that he might also end up getting suspended over that hit, but for his part, Brown feels that he's already been punished too much over what happened. "I’m going to close on him," Brown said. "He stumbles, toe picks. I don’t drive through the wall or anything but I also close in on the play. At most it’s probably a two [minute penalty]. I hope he’s OK."

Adrian Kempe scored a goal in a 3-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night.

Kempe is en route to matching his totals from his rookie season, having already reached 14 goals in 44 games in comparison to the 15 he got in 68 games last season. Kempe's got 14 goals and 23 points in his sophomore season.

Jonathan Quick led the Los Angeles Kings out of the tunnel for warmups, indicating he will start tonight's game vs. the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Quick is coming off a 4-2 loss against the Anaheim Ducks and will be looking to break his three-game losing streak. He has a 19-14-2 record this season with a 2.33 GAA and a .924 save percentage.
Jan 18 - 9:41 PM

It appears Andy Andreoff will be one of three players scratched by the Los Angeles Kings tonight.

Andreoff appears set to be joined in the press box by Torrey Mitchel and Paul LaDue. Andreoff has four points in 29 games and is considered a depth forward with no fantasy upside. Jeff Carter (lower body) will also miss the game.
Jan 18 - 9:20 PM

Jake Muzzin (upper body) has been taken off the injured reserve list.

That sets the stage for Muzzin to return on Thursday. He was sidelined for three straight games. He has three goals and 23 points in 41 contests in 2017-18.

Jake Muzzin (upper body) hopes to be ready to return to the Kings' lineup on Thursday.

As previously reported, Muzzin practiced on Wednesday and it wouldn't be surprising if he does play Thursday night. Muzzin has missed three straight games and Los Angeles lost all of those contests so it would be great for both parties if he is available.
