Terry Murray’s postgame thoughts...
(on scoring five goals after the recent drought...)
MURRAY: ``And against a real good hockey team. Lehtonen is off to a tremendous start to his year. So to come in here and score five, it’s a big team effort. It took everybody to get the job done here tonight,... Read More
Willie Mitchell’s postgame thoughts...
(on Voynov’s play...)
MITCHELL: ``I think he has played pretty well defensively, for a guy who is really young, and it’s nice to see him get rewarded with some offensive stuff, because I know that’s a big part of his game. We’ve seen that he moves the puck ... Read More
Anze Kopitar’s postgame thoughts...
(on coming back after giving up two third-period goals...)
KOPITAR: ``I think it shows the character of this team. We’ve blown a few leads before, but this was a step in the right direction. They did tie it up, but we pressed on the gas pedal again and we got ... Read More
The game is bound to be better than the wi-fi at the American Airlines Center, which is a non-starter. Then again, it's only 2011. Catch all the action on Fox Sports West and 1150-AM and affiliates, with all the updates here as well...
In goal: It's still Quick against Lehtonen.

The Kings and Dallas Stars face off for the second time in six days and for the second of their six meetings this season. This time, the Kings will get a look at No. 1 goalie Kari Lehtonen, who, along with Jonathan Quick, ranks among the NHL’s top five goalies in wins, goals-against average and save... Read More
Do the Kings feel at home on the road? Including the two games in Europe -- officially listed as home games, but in reality, neutral-site games at best -- the Kings are 2-2-0 at home and 3-1-1 away from Staples Center. Last season, the Kings were only slightly better at home (53 points) than they we... Read More
At least by the numbers, tonight’s game is shaping up to be a low-scoring affair. The Kings came out with a 1-0 victory over the Stars on Saturday. The Stars have allowed two or fewer goals in eight of their first nine games, while the Kings have allowed two or fewer goals in six of their first eigh... Read More
The question, ``Will Drew Doughty play tonight?’’ was essentially answered at the end of the morning skate, when Slava Voynov came off the ice with a couple other defensemen and Doughty remained out for extra work. Doughty got in a second day of full practice but will not play tonight against Dallas... Read More
Scott Parse will make his North American season debut tonight in place of Kevin Westgarth. Parse played the first two games of the season in Europe but didn't show much and was replaced when Dustin Penner returned to the lineup. After 19 days, Parse gets another look tonight, on the second line with... Read More
Drew Doughty won't play tonight, but the Kings will make one lineup move, with Scott Parse replacing Kevin Westgarth and stepping into a second-line role. Here's how things are expected to look...

Depending on Drew Doughty’s status for tonight, Slava Voynov might have played his last NHL game for a while. When Doughty returns from injured reserve, the Kings will need to make a roster move in order to create space for him. Called up when Doughty went on injured reserve, Voynov has played in fo...
