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.

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.

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.

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.

Andrej Sekera is projected to make his Kings' debut on Friday against Anaheim.

Los Angeles acquired Sekera from Carolina on Wednesday. He'll probably play alongside Robyn Regehr, who he has experience working with from their days with Buffalo. Sekera has two goals and 19 points in 57 games in 2014-15.

Jonathan Quick turned aside 27 shots in LA's 1-0 loss to Ottawa on Thursday night.

It was another quality start by the defending champion goalie, but Quick's mates couldn't solve Andrew Hammond on the other end. Fortunately for LA, as far as they're concerned, the standings didn't change. Quick falls to 25-16-10 through 52 games with a .915 save percentage and a 2.35 GAA.

Alec Martinez was placed on injury reserve retroactive to Feb. 9th with a concussion.

The move frees up what remains of Martinez's $1.1M cap hit. The defenseman has five goals and 17 points in 45 games this season. And as with all concussions, there is no timetable for his return.
Feb 26 - 11:09 PM

Andrej Sekera was not on ice for warm-ups against the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night.

It does not appear that the newly acquired Sekera will make his Kings debut tonight.
Feb 26 - 10:12 PM

Andy Andreoff and Derek Forbort will be scratched against the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night.

Andreoff has just a dozen games to his credit this season, and only three in 2015. Meanwhile Forbort has yet to make his NHL debut. Neither have any fantasy value until they show they can get into and stay in the lineup.

Jonathan Quick is expected to get the start against the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night.

The Kings come in holding the third slot in the Pacific, and tied with Calgary with 70 standings points. One point ahead of Minnesota, and two ahead of San Jose. However the defending champs have games in hand. Quick for his part owns a 25-15-10 record with a .914 save percentage and a 2.38 GAA through 51 games this season. He's also won eight in a row with just 13 goals against in that time.
Feb 26 - 8:31 PM

Andrej Sekera is expected to be ready to make his Kings debut Thursday against Ottawa.

The Kings were waiting for Sekera to get medical clearance and he didn't practice with the team in the morning, but that may not prevent him from suiting up. If he does play then it could make Jamie McBain a healthy scratch.

With Andrej Sekera acquired, look for Drew Doughty's playing time to go down.

Doughty has been averaging an unreal 29:27 minutes per contest in 2014-15 due in part to the fact that Slava Voynov has been serving an indefinite suspension. Sekera gives the Hurricanes a blueliner that can be trusted with over 20 minutes per game and consequently take a little bit of the pressure off of Doughty.
