Anze Kopitar has only one assist in his last six games.

Kopitar has 33 points this season and is in grave danger (is there any other kind) of losing his nine year streak as the Kings leading point getter. He is also a minus-six in the last six contests so all-in-all, the Slovenian has not had a good season.

Peter Budaj stopped 28 of 29 shots on Sunday but received no offense in a 1-0 loss to Anaheim.

Budaj falls to 28-19-3 this season with a 2.14 goals against average and .916 save percentage. He is winless in five of his last six games.
Feb 20 - 12:24 AM

Tanner Pearson and the rest of the Kings were held scoreless in a 1-0 loss to the Ducks on Sunday night.

Pearson's point streak ended at three games, but the 24-year-old is still playing well with 19 goals and 33 points in 56 games.
Feb 20 - 12:21 AM

Peter Budaj will start Sunday's game against Anaheim.

Budaj has been workhorse for the Kings and will start again after he was in goal for a 3-2 loss to Florida on Saturday night.
Feb 19 - 8:50 PM

Kevin Gravel and Andy Andreoff will be scratched against the Ducks on Sunday.

Gravel has posted three points along with 49 blocks and 55 hits this season. Andreoff has picked up two points with 30 PIms and 45 hits.

Jeff Carter picked up an assist Saturday and now has 53 points including 24 helpers.

It was the third straight game that Carter has picked up an assist. The Kings offensive star this season is 13th in NHL scoring and second in the league in goals, behind only Sidney Crosby's 31 markers.
Feb 19 - 6:00 AM

Jake Muzzin has been a minus-12 in 2017.

He is a minus-17 overall this season and that destroys his fantasy value as he has seven goals and 18 points. He has four goals and seven points on the power play but if you are in a traditional pool, Muzzin has been a disappointment.
Feb 19 - 5:57 AM

Peter Budaj's recent struggles continued on Saturday as the Los Angeles Kings fell 3-2 to the Florida Panthers.

The Kings lost despite a 35-25 SOG advantage, as Budaj allowed three goals. The game-winner eluded Budaj by a very narrow margin. The journeyman backup-turned-starter has lost four of his last five games.
Feb 19 - 1:22 AM

The Los Angeles Kings fell 3-2 to the Florida Panthers on Saturday, but Tanner Pearson continues to be a red-hot point producer.

While his streak of three-point games ended at two contests, Pearson scored one of the Kings' goals, giving him 19 on the season. Jeff Carter grabbed an assist on that goal, giving him a three-game point streak of his own.
Feb 19 - 1:16 AM

Kevin Gravel and Andy Andreoff will be scratched against the Panthers on Saturday.

Through 38 games this season the defender has posted three points along with 49 blocks and 55 hits. Andreoff meanwhile has picked up a pair of points plus 30 PIMs and 45 hits.

Peter Budaj will take on the Panthers on Saturday.

The veteran netminder has finally begun to show his age. Over his last four games he's 1-3 with 16 goals against and an .833 save percentage. Then again, he also leads the league with seven shutouts.
Feb 18 - 3:15 PM

Dustin Brown had a goal and an assist in a 5-3 loss to Arizona Thursday night.

That was Brown's second straight multi-point contest. He has nine goals and 27 points in 54 contests this season.
Feb 17 - 4:56 AM

Peter Budaj allowed four goals on 21 shots in a 5-3 loss to Arizona on Thursday.

It's night to forget for Budaj who really wishes he had the fourth goal back, a shorthanded marker on the short side to break the spirit of the comeback for the Kings. He's now allowed 16 goals in his last four games but has been brilliant this season nonetheless. He has a 26-17-3 record to a go with stingy 2.15 GAA and .917 save percentage with seven shutouts in 49 appearances.
Feb 17 - 1:59 AM

Tanner Pearson scored twice and added an assist in a losing effort against Arizona on Thursday.

That's back-to-back three point games for the 24-year-old who had a hand on all three goals for the Kings on this night. He adds to his career high in goals with 18 in a single season. Dustin Brown also scored and added an assist in a losing effort.
Feb 17 - 1:50 AM

Kevin Gravel and Andy Andreoff will be scratched against the Coyotes on Thursday.

Through 38 games this season the defender has posted three points along with 49 blocks and 55 hits. Andreoff meanwhile has picked up a pair of points plus 30 PIMs and 45 hits.
