Los Angeles Kings
After a slow start to the season that saw their star goalie go down, the Kings have picked things up a couple notches and earned their 3rd straight win with a victory over the Blue Jackets in overtime last time out.
LW Dustin Brown continues to be the spark here during this winning streak. Brown has a goal and 4 assists to his credit during this 3 game run, as he is all over the ice during his shifts, causing real havoc for opposing defenses.
This will mark the 4th home game for the Kings thus far, as they sit at 2-1. However, they have conceded 3 goals per game, which is something to watch for as they need that number to decrease.
Not allowing 2nd and 3rd shots is a must for this Kings team, as they’ve been allowing teams to really get good looks on them up close.
All three of the Kings wins during this streak have come in overtime. This marks the first time since 2009 that Los Angeles has played in 3 consecutive overtime games.
