LA Kings fall to Wild, but dominate Bruins

LOS ANGELES – Continuing their five-game home stand, the Kings were defeated by the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday, but delivered a commanding performance against the Boston Bruins on Thursday.

Tuesday's shoot-out loss to Minnesota brought back concerns with the lack of scoring from the Kings, having snapped a five-game losing streak just three days prior. The Kings' only goal came early during the third period, when Jarret Stoll put in a wristshot off of assists from Jeff Carter and Dwight King. Neither team scored during overtime, and four rounds of shooters from the Kings resulted in no goals during the shootout.

On Thursday, Boston (which holds the second highest number of points behind Pittsburgh in the Eastern Conference), visited Staples Center. It was as though the Kings wanted to make a statement with this game, as they scored three goals and allowed only one goal before the end of the second period. In the end, the Kings prevailed largely due to offensive production and strong goaltending by Jonathan Quick, and they also neutralized the Bruins defensively.

Tonight, the Kings welcome the Detroit Red Wings, who are struggling since dealing with injuries.

Looking ahead, the Kings wrap up their home stand facing Vancouver on Monday and begin a five-game road trip at St. Louis.
