Scouting the Flames

This is the fourth and final meeting of the season between the Kings and the Calgary Flames. It follows the Kings’ 4-1 win in Calgary on Jan. 14, the Flames’ 2-1 overtime win in Los Angeles on Jan. 19 and the Flames’ 1-0 win in Los Angeles on Feb. 18. In each game, Jonathan Quick faced Miikka Kiprusoff in goal, and they will go head-to-head again tonight. In their win over the Flames, the Kings went 1-for-4 on the power play. In the two losses, they went a combined 0-for-5. The Kings also need to watch out for Calgary’s power play, as the Flames are 5-for-16 with the man advantage in their last three games. The Flames ended a 0-2-3 skid on Monday, when they beat Dallas 5-4. The Kings enter the game in ninth place in the Western Conference, one point ahead of 11th-place Calgary and with one game in hand.
