March 26 morning skate quotes: Darryl Sutter

On what he has liked about the current road trip: Won two games. [Reporter: What’s been important to those wins?] We played a full 60 minutes against a real disciplined team in Jersey, and obviously a Rangers team that’s similar to the Islanders team in terms of the high end part of it and managing it. On how Andrej Sekera has acclimated himself to the team: It was tough for […]

March 26 morning skate notes

Good afternoon from the team hotel in Uniondale. The Kings held their final regular season morning skate at Nassau Coliseum, and there weren’t many surprises.

Good morning, Uniondale; LAK.com feature

Good morning, Long Island, and good morning, Insiders. Today’s southeast-facing view is better than Tuesday’s Manhattan view but doesn’t give away much, other than the misty morning low clouds on a chilly early spring morning. It was a beautiful if brisk day when we arrived on Long Island shortly after 1:00 p.m. and walked into Nassau Coliseum yesterday; after practice had concluded, that same walk was endured with a stiff […]

Martinez evaluates his return to the lineup

Alec Martinez was among the skaters who took the ice at today’s optional practice in Uniondale, New York. After skating, he met with reporters and Kings broadcasters to provide a sense of where he’s at after returning to the lineup for a back-to-back set. Alec Martinez, on any noticeable difference between his first two games back: I think sometimes the second game is actually harder than the first just because […]

The Los Angeles Kings practiced at Nassau Coliseum on Wednesday afternoon as 11 skaters took the ice along with goaltender Martin Jones following the back-to-back wins in Newark and Manhattan that opened the five-game road trip.

Stoll has resumed skating

As learned from General Manager Dean Lombardi, Jarret Stoll skated for the second consecutive day on Wednesday in his attempt to return from an upper-body injury sustained when he absorbed an unpenalized Derek Dorsett hit during the third period of Los Angeles’ 4-0 win at Vancouver on March 12. Though the team has not specified the exact nature of Stoll’s injury, Alec Martinez’s recovery from “concussion-like symptoms” was referenced within […]
