Kings Vs. Stars: First Place Kings Look For Fifth Win In Six Games

The Kings are 2-0 against the Stars this season, and this is the third of six meetings between the two clubs this campaign.

The Los Angeles Kings have won four of their last five games to move into a first-place tie in the Pacific Division of the NHL. The Kings end a brief two-game road trip Wednesday night in Texas, batting the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Arena.

The Kings beat the St. Louis Blues 3-2 Tuesday night, with backup goaltender Jonathan Bernier picking up his second win of the season. Jonathan Quick is expected to get the start on Wednesday in Dallas, against a Stars team he has owned in his career, with a 12-3-0 record and a 1.99 goals against average, and six consecutive wins dating back to October 2010. Quick on the season is 9-5-3 with a .930 save percentage this season.

Dallas got off to a hot start this season at 11-3-0, but suffered a five-game losing streak before finally getting a win on Monday against the Edmonton Oilers. The Stars are 7-3-0 at home this season, with one of those losses coming at the hands of the Kings, a 5-3 L.A. win on October 27.

The Kings are 2-0 against the Stars this season, and this is the third of six meetings between the two clubs this campaign.

Wednesday's 5:30 p.m. PST game will be televised by Fox Sports West. For more Kings hockey news and notes, be sure to read Jewels From The Crown.
