Kings Schedule: Leafs, Ducks, Sharks Up Next For Los Angeles

The Los Angeles Kings suffered a rough loss on Saturday, losing to the Detroit Red Wings by a final score of 8-2. The Kings are now 3-7-0 over their last 10 games and trying to find some sustained traction as 2011 winds down.

This week's schedule has the Kings wrapping up the final game of a three-game road trip before a home game against one divisional rival and a road game against another. All three games are scheduled to be televised on FS-W.

Monday, December 19 will have the Kings visiting the Toronto Maple Leafs, a team that is right in the middle of the pack in the Northeast Division. The puck is scheduled to drop at 4:00 PM PST.

The Kings will then be home in Los Angeles on Thursday, December 22, as they will take on their Southern California and divisional rivals, the Anaheim Ducks. The Ducks are one of the worst teams in the NHL right now and are playing like it. That game is scheduled to begin at 7:00 PM PST.

The Kings will then immediately hit the road to take on division rival San Jose Sharks on Friday, December 23. San Jose is chasing the Dallas Stars for first place in the Pacific Division. Friday's game will begin at 7:00 PM PST.

Kings Vs. Red Wings Final Score: Detroit Hands Los Angeles Brutal 8-2 Loss

The Los Angeles Kings visited the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night. Unfortunately, by the end of the night, the Los Angeles team had given the Detroit crowd plenty to cheer about while being handed an 8-2 loss.

The Kings have been struggling as of late, while the Red Wings have been duking it out with the Chicago Blackhawks and the St. Louis Blues for the catbird seat in the Central Division.

The Kings actually took more shots on goal during Saturday's game, racking up 29 compared to Detroit's 27. Los Angeles goaltenders Jonathan Bernier and Jonathan Quick allowed a combined eight goals on those 27 shots, however, as no less than 14 different Red Wings players earned a point in the game. Quick picked up the loss, despite leaving the game less than halfway through the first period after stopping four shots. The Red Wings picked up two goals in the first two minutes of play and never looked back.

Davis Drewiske scored the first Kings goal in the first period, with assists from Justin Williams and Dustin Penner. Jarret Stoll scored Los Angeles' second and final goal in the second period, again with assists from Williams and Penner.
