Kings Vs. Flames: L.A. Opens Homestand At Staples Center

The Kings are 8-1-5 under head coach Darryl Sutter.

The Los Angeles Kings look to extend their point streak to six games on Thursday night as they open a four-game homestand against the Calgary Flames at Staples Center. This is the second meeting between the two clubs in six days, as the Kings came away with a 4-1 victory on January 14 in head coach Darryl Sutter's return to Calgary.

Under Sutter, the Kings have lost in regulation only once in 14 games, sporting an 8-1-5 record under their new head man. The Kings open play Thursday two points behind the San Jose Sharks for first place in the Pacific Division. The Kings are currently in the seventh spot in the NHL Western Conference.

The Flames have lost six straight road games and 11 of their last 13 away from Calgary, with a 2-7-4 road record during that span. Saturday's matchup in Calgary was the first-ever coaching matchup between brothers Darryl and Brent Sutter.

Thursday night's 7:30 p.m. PST game will be televised by Fox Sports West. For more news and information on Kings hockey, be sure to read Jewels From The Crown.
