This is certainly a must-win situation for the LA Kings, as they face on of the worst teams in the league at home. The Kings are three points back of the St. Louis Blues for the final wildcard spot in the West.
The Coyotes are firmly out of the running, but could play spoiler to their Pacific Division counterparts.
GM John Chayka is in the process of stockpiling young talent and high draft picks, while completely retooling the roster aside from the bitter Shane Doan.
Chayka has dealt off veterans Martin Hanzel and Michael Stone at the deadline, while receiving high draft pick compensation to help arm his rebuild.
He will continue to build around Max Domi, Tobias Rieder, Christian Dvorak, Jakob Chychrun, Anthony DeAngelo, Brendan Perlini and Connor Murphy.
Future help is on the way in the likes of Clayton Keller and Dylan Strome, both of whom starred for their respective countries at the World Junior tournament this year.
Keller has stated he wants to sign after his season finishes at Boston University, where he has notched 40 points in 28 games. Strome has already had a taste of NHL action with 7 games this season.
There isn’t a surefire succession plan to Mike Smith in net, as Louis Domingue has produced a .899 SV% this season in 26 games.
This may be an area they look to address in the upcoming draft. Smith has a .912 SV% and a 3.00 GAA this season in his age-34 year.
Los Angeles Kings
The Kings are hoping that reuniting Jarome Iginla while ignite his offensive game, which has registered only 10 goals and 20 points this season.
Since coming over from the Avalanche, Iginla has two goals in four games played, though both came in last Thursday’s contest against Nashville.
The problem with the Kings is team speed, as the line of Jeff Carter, Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson is the quickest line on the squad, but grades out as about average overall.
Carter leads the team with 31 goals and 59 points. He is the only King above 40 points on the year, and has done his best to single-handedly put the Kings on the board many nights.
The team’s key to success is their excellent defensive play. The Kings rank 5th overall in goals against, allowing an average of 2.5 per game. The blueline is led by Norris-winner, Drew Doughty is logging 27:17 ATOI and has 37 points on the year.
The Kings have arguably the best goaltending tandem in the league between Jonathan Quick and Ben Bishop.
Quick owns a .917 SV% and a 2.38 GAA in his limited action of 13 games due to injury. Bishop now shifts to a backup role with LA, after splitting the starts in Tampa this year before the trade.
