Finding some offense

The Kings managed a win Saturday against the New York Islanders, but they didn’t manage to shake their recent trend of not putting a significant number of goals/shots on the board. The Kings have scored two or fewer goals in five consecutive games — and totaled six in regulation — and have totaled 28 or fewer shots in four consecutive games. The shot total, which had dipped to 20 against Nashville and 17 against Chicago, rose to 26 against the Islanders. Terry Murray talked about getting the offense back…

MURRAY: “I think we drifted away from the net presence a little bit. Our attitude on that has been pretty good over the course of the year. Last game, against the Islanders, I saw more traffic and a better attitude about trying to get there and create some screens. Hopefully we can just follow through again with that tonight.”
