Trevor Lewis registered an assist in a 4-1 loss to Chicago Monday night.

Lewis has nine goals and 24 points in 67 contests in 2014-15. That might not be a ton, but it does shatter his previous career-high of 14 points. It's also noteworthy given that the 28-year-old has 133 penalty minutes this season.

Andrej Sekera sustained a lower-body injury during Monday's game against Chicago.

"He fell on my leg, and I felt something went wrong, and that was the night for me," Sekera said. The incident occurred late in the second period. Sekera still needs to be evaluated, so he should be considered day-to-day for now.

Jake Muzzin stayed hot as he scored the Kings' only goal during Monday's 4-1 loss to the Blackhawks.

Muzzin now has points in five of his last seven games, with two goals and five points during that span. He finishes March with three goals and 10 points over 15 games. For the season, Muzzin has nine goals and 38 points, trailing only Drew Doughty by a trio for the most points from the blue line on the team.

Jonathan Quick was unable to handle the Chicago Blackhawks' attack, making 36 saves during Monday's 4-1 loss.

Quick was simply not good, allowing a trio of goals the normally reliable netminder would stop. The loss came at a bad time as the Flames and Canucks won their games, pushing the Kings to three points outside of the Pacific and two points out of the Wild Card. Quick's record now stands at 33-21-12 .916 save percentage and a 2.30 GAA this season.

Defensemen Jamie McBain and Brayden McNabb and forward Andy Andreoff will all be healthy scratches Monday versus Chicago.

There will be no lineup changes to the Kings lineup Monday night so this trio will all watch from the press box. McBain hasn’t played in a game since February 26th and has three goals and nine points in 26 games this year. McNabb has played in 65 games this year picking up a goal and 22 assists but hasn’t dressed since March 21st. And Andreoff has played in just 17 games this year scoring one goal.

Jonathan Quick will get the call in net Monday night when the Kings take on the Blackhawks.

Quick will be in net Monday night for his 66th start and 67th appearance this season. He holds a 33-20-12 record, 2.28 goals-against-average, .916 save percentage and six shutouts this year. In two starts versus Chicago this season, he has a 1-1 record with a 3.03 GAA and .887 save percentage.

Darryl Sutter wants the Kings aiming for more than a postseason berth.

"Everybody's trying to make the playoffs," Sutter said. "We still have the opportunity to get home ice, as 'desperate' as we are. We still have the opportunity to go home in two weeks, so it's one of the two. You’re not going to get a wild-card spot. The Wild Card's out of the picture." Los Angeles, which doesn't currently occupy a playoff spot, is three points behind the second Pacific Division seed Vancouver Canucks. If the Kings claim that spot they will have the home-ice advantage in the first round. They'll have to be superb over their last seven games to pull off that comeback though.

Dustin Brown is in a goal scoring slump as he has not scored since February 18.

That's a span of 18 games and he has only two assists in that time frame as well. Once, one of the best power forwards in the NHL, Brown has only 10 goals and 26 points this season and should not be on your fantasy radar at this time.

Anze Kopitar's five game scoring streak was snapped on Saturday.

The Kings leading point getter with 60 was held off the scoresheet. He is four points ahead of Jeff Carter in his quest to lead theg Kings in points for an eighth straight season.

Martin Jones saw his first action in almost a month as coach Darryl Sutter put him between the pipes for the final two periods Saturday.

Sutter pulled Jonathan Quick after the first in which the Kings were down 2-0 to the Wild. Jones faced only 10 shots and gave up one goal in a 4-1 loss. He has not started since February 27 and with the Kings in a huge battle for the final playoff spot in the West, do not expect to see him in goal in the regular season, barring an injury or the Kings clinching a spot in the post-season.

Dwight King picked up a goal for the Kings in their 4-1 loss to the Wild on Saturday night.

King was the only one who was able to beat Devan Dubnyk, scoring 3:20 into the second period on a wrist shot. He has 11 goals and 23 points this season. Jeff Carter and Tyler Toffoli recorded the helpers.

Jonathan Quick lasted one period in the Kings’ 4-1 loss to Minnesota on Saturday night.

Quick gave up two goals on nine shots. He had actually been rolling with a 3-1-0 record during a spurt in which he gave up a total of seven goals. Quick has a 2.28 goals-against average and .916 save percentage. Martin Jones stopped nine of 10 shots he faced in relief.

Goalie Jonathan Quick will be between the Los Angeles Kings' pipes when they visit the Wild in Minnesota Saturday night.

Quick might not be a bad choice for one-night fantasy play. He's on a miniature hot streak with three consecutive wins and has been terrific. He's 33-19-12 overall this season with a 2.26 goals-against average but he also is 9-4-3 with a 2.39 goals-against average in 16 starts against Minnesota. This is the time of year when Quick usually shines.

Andrej Sekera has been a big boon to the Kings since his trade from the Hurricanes at the deadline.

The Kings were in desperate need of a defenseman with the suspension of Slava Voynov earlier in the season and the overplaying of Drew Doughty and Sekera has filled the bill. "He's been good," center Anze Kopitar said of the blueliner. "He's obviously been very big. He's been able to take some minutes off Dewey [Drew Doughty] too, which always comes in handy. He's been making plays the last two games, which is huge for us." The good news for Kings fans is that Doughty has averaged just over 24 minutes in his last two games after playing over 29 minutes all season on average.
Mar 28 - 9:14 AM

Tyler Toffoli netted a shorthanded goal in the Kings' 3-2 win over the New York Islanders on Thursday.

It was Toffoli's fifth shorthanded marker of the 2014-15 campaign. Despite not having a shorthanded assist this season, he's leading the league in both shorthanded goals and shorthanded points. Overall he has 22 goals and 43 points in 68 contests in 2014-15.
