The rival Anaheim Ducks host the Los Angeles Kings in a Tuesday night NHL matchup.
The Los Angeles Kings look to begin a hot streak when the teams visits the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday. Los Angeles looks for another two points after picking up one in a 4-3, overtime defeat versus the Nashville Predators on Saturday night.
This was a tough loss to swallow for the Kings with Viktor Arvidsson’s breakaway tally with just under 20 seconds left in the extra session lifting the Predators. PK Subban, Mikka Salomaki and Craig Smith scored in regulation for Nashville while Calle Jarnkrok posted a pair of helpers. Juuse Saros led the Predators to the win with a 36 stop performance.
The Kings scored all three of their goal in the third period to erase a 3-0 hole. Alex Iafallo, Christian Folin and Alec Martinez on the power play supplied the Los Angeles scoring but the dramatic come back went for naught with Darcy Kuemper giving up four goals on 31 shots.
The Anaheim Ducks look to get back to winning hockey when the Los Angeles Kings visit the Honda Center on Tuesday. Anaheim had dropped back to back contests before salvaging a point in a 2-1 shootout loss at the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night.
The game started out well enough when Corey Perry got behind the San Jose defense and lit the lamp with Derek Grant and Rickard Rakell supplying assists. The Ducks held the lead until Joel Ward evened the score at 11:57 of the third period with an assist from Barclay Goodrow.
Joonas Donskoi finally sored the winner in round six of the shootout that lifted the Sharks and goalie Martin Jones and his 26 stops to a hard earned victory. Ryan Miller recorded a monster 45 saves to help the Ducks to a point.
