Kings Look To Extend Point Streak To Nine Games Hosting Coyotes

The Kings are 2-0-1 against the Coyotes this season.

The Los Angeles Kings look to extend their point streak to nine games Thursday night as they host the Phoenix Coyotes at Staples Center. The Kings are 4-0-3 under new head coach Darryl Sutter, having yet to lose in regulation, and are 5-0-3 in their last eight games.

Thursday is the third game of a six-game homestand for the Kings. The club is still struggling offensively, with 14 goals in seven games under Sutter, but they have shown pockets of success with a pair of four-goal games in their last six contests. "We had a few good shifts and had some scoring chances, but we just couldn't bury them and it came back to bite us," Anze Kopitar told the Associated Press after the Kings lost 2-1 in a shootout at home to the Colorado Avalanche.

Kings' goaltender Jonathan Quick is 5-0-2 in his last seven starts with a .951 save percentage during that span. On the season Quick is 17-10-6 with a .932 save percentage that is sixth in the NHL, and a league-best five shutouts.

Phoenix is 1-4-1 in their last six games. The Kings are 2-0-1 against the Coyotes this season.

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