Los Angeles Kings 2015-16 Regular Season:
Game 50 @ Arizona, February 2, 2016, 6pm PST
They may not win the season series but the Los Angeles Kings return from the All-Star break hoping to end their season series with the Arizona Coyotes on a winning note.
Fresh off his appearance at the All-Star Game, Jonathan Quick is expected to be back in goal for the Kings as he looks to end a personal three-game losing streak. The silver-and-black, though, will need to find a way to contain Oliver Ekman-Larsson. In four games against Los Angeles this season, the defenseman has four goals. For the Kings, they are led in this season series by captain Dustin Brown, who has three goals.
The Kings come back from the All-Star break with a seven-point lead over San Jose in the Pacific as they embark on a stretch that will see them play eight of their next nine away from STAPLES Center. This will also be an emotional game for the silver-and-black as their Hall-of-Famer TV announcer Bob Miller begins a medical leave of absence.
There’s never any love lost between these fierce rivals. So, there’s nothing else to say except to drop the puck.
Enjoy the game!
