Los Angeles Kings
The Los Angeles Kings (24-17-7) had not played in 13 days when they took on the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday, and it showed as the Kings gave up four goals in the final frame to lose, 5-2. Cal Petersen gave up three goals on 27 shots, moving to 11-7-1 with a 2.70 GAA and a .900 save percentage. He has given up three goals in each of his last two starts and it would not be surprising to see Jonathan Quick (2.60 GAA, .912) get the start.
Philip Danault scored his 13th goal of the season in the contest, his third over the last five games. Los Angeles is averaging 2.8 goals per game this season, but have been a bit better over the last month and a half, scoring 53 goals in their last 17 games. Anze Kopitar has five points over his last five games and leads the club with 42 points.
Vegas Golden Knights
The Vegas Golden Knights (28-18-3) were shutout by the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday, 2-0. It was the second time in a row that Vegas has been shutout and their third straight game involved in a shutout. The Golden Knights have not scored a goal in over 139 minutes. The team scored nine goals to start out the month, but is suddenly struggling to find the back of the net. This seems to be a carryover from the end of January when Vegas scored eight goals in their final four games.
The Golden Knights are 19th in the NHL in goals allowed per game (2.9). It will be Robin Lehner between the pipes, who is 19-13-1 with a 2.86 goals-against average at a .907 save percentage. He gave up six goals in the loss to Calgary but had played quite well prior to that, giving up six total goals in his previous four outings.
