LA KINGS STORYLINES:
Goaltenders Jonathan Quick and Cal Petersen have posted incredible numbers over the Kings last 11 games (7-2-2). The tandem stopped 298 of 320
shots and has combined for a .931 save percentage, a 1.97 goals-against average and one shutout while allowing two goals or less in nine of the 11
Individually, Jonathan Quick has been outstanding over his last six games (4-1-1) in which he has posted a .958 save percentage, a 1.31 goals-against
average and one shutout.
The Kings as a team and individually all have had impressive streaks recently. The team tied the 11th longest point-streak in history (eight games, 7-0-
1), Oct. 28-Nov. 13. The teams’ seven-game winning streak recently came to an end. It was tied for the third longest such streak in the league this
season and tied for the seventh longest streak in franchise history. It was just the 12th time in franchise history that the team has won seven-or-more
consecutive games (franchise record is nine).
Forward Alex Iafallo had a seven-game point streak (5-5=10), Oct. 28-Nov. 9. He has the sixth most points and is tied for the sixth most goals in the
league since Oct. 28. It is tied for the sixth longest streak by any player in the NHL. The streak was the second longest of his career (nine games, Dec.
21, 2019-Jan. 9, 2020, 4-6=10). He also scored a goal at 0:06 seconds of the third period, Nov. 9 at MTL. It was the fastest goal to start a period in
franchise history, surpassing the previous record of 0:07 set by Dave Williams on Feb. 14, 1987 vs. Hartford. It is also the fastest goal in the league
since Montreal’s Brendan Gallagher scored at the 0:06 second mark on Oct. 19, 2019.
Adrian Kempe recently saw his career-long four-game goal streak come to an end. It matches the longest by any player in the league this season.
The Kings came from behind in the third period to win in consecutive games (Oct. 31 vs. BUF and Nov. 3 vs. STL). It is the 19th time in franchise history
they have accomplished this feat (last: Mar. 21-23, 2019).
Rookie defenseman Kale Clague registered a point in each of his first three of the games he played in this season (0-3=3).
With seven points in two games during the first week of the season, captain Anze Kopitar was named the first star of the week.
