Kings Vs. Maple Leafs: L.A. Looks To End Road Trip On High Note

The Kings have scored two goals or less in 11 straight games.

The Los Angeles Kings look to end their four-game road trip on a high note Monday night as they battle the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre. The Kings are coming off their worst defeat of the season, and 8-2 loss on Saturday night in Detroit that made for an angry visitors locker room.

"We've got to find ways to be a lot better than we were tonight," team captain Dustin Brown said to Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times on Saturday. "With everything that's gone on, guys have got to take responsibility in here because it doesn't matter whether Stevens is our coach or whoever they're bringing in.

Monday is expected to be the final game for interim coach John Stevens, who has filled in for Terry Murray, who was fired a week ago. Darryl Sutter has reportedly already agreed to by the next head coach of the team and is expected to be introduced Tuesday or Wednesday.

The problem for the Kings (14-4-4) has been offense, as the team is dead last in the NHL averaging 2.16 goals per game. The Kings have scored two goals or less in each of their last 11 games. During that span they have scored just 17 total goals and are 3-7-1.

This is the only meeting between the Kings and Maple Leafs (16-13-3) this season.

Monday's 4 p.m. PST game will be televised by Fox Sports West. For more Kings news and information, be sure to read Jewels From The Crown.
