News
Although it has been three seasons since he has played for the Flyers, Jeff Carter has not played a game in Philadelphia as visiting player.
Lisa Dillman Twitter

Impact
That's going to change when the Kings face off against the Flyers in Philly Monday night. Carter is downplaying his return to the City of Brotherly Love where he enjoyed tremendous success but was also the lightning rod of controversy. "It is what it is. It's been three years since I left there. It's not a big deal really," Carter said. "It should be a lot of fun though." We doubt the vocal Philly fans will be kind to Carter, though. It will be interesting to see if he brings his A-game to the Wells Fargo Center.

Brown doesn't travel with team to Philly | 03/23/2014 12:32 PM
News
Dustin Brown did not travel with his teammates to Philadelphia due to an upper-body injury he sustained in Saturday's game after colliding with the Panthers' Dylan Olsen.
Los Angeles Times

Impact
He remained in Los Angeles to have his upper-body injury re-evaluated on Sunday and is at best questionable for the Kings' game against the Flyers on Monday. There is a possibility, however, that if Brown checks out OK he could jump on a plane and participate in the Kings' three-game road trip. Stay tuned for further updates.

Jeff Carter skates alongside Pearson, Toffoli | 03/22/2014 10:19 AM
News
Jeff Carter skated alongside Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli during Friday's practice.
Los Angeles Times

Impact
Kings coach Darryl Sutter balked at the idea that Carter was put on their line to help out the 21-year-old forwards. Sutter argued that Toffoli and Pearson were already playing well. In fact, Sutter might be hoping that the kids spark Carter, who has no goals and an assist in his last five games.
Mike Richards gets knocked down to 4th line | 03/22/2014 10:14 AM
News
Mike Richards practiced on the Kings' fourth line on Friday.
Los Angeles Times

Impact
Richards hasn't recorded a point in his last six games, which unfortunately is just the latest rough patch in what has been a terrible season by his standards. He has just nine goals and 39 points in 70 contests in 2013-14. That being said, it sounds like Kings coach Darryl Sutter is hoping the demotion serves to spark Richards and suggested that he needs Richards to bounce back if the Kings are going to be successful in the playoffs. Consequently, the move might be very short-term.

Los Angeles Daily News

News
Jonathan Quick is tied with Rogie Vachon for the Kings' franchise record for career wins.
Los Angeles Daily News

Impact
Quick earned his 171st victory in a 2-1 shootout win against Washington on Thursday. Given that Quick is just 28 years old and is signed through 2022-23, that record will be completely dwarfed by the time his tenure with Los Angeles is done.

News
Jonathan Quick turned aside 21 of 22 shots in Los Angeles 2-1 shootout win over Washington Thursday night.
Rotoworld.com

Impact
Quick allowed some soft goals Monday in the loss to the Coyotes, but looked particularly sharp in the second period with consecutive point-blank saves on former Kings forward Dustin Penner, the second with the cuff of his glove. Quick, who stopped two of three Washington attempts in the shootout, tied Rogie Vachon for the Los Angeles franchise record with his 171st win. He now has a 22-15-2 record with a 2.07 GAA and .915 save percentage.

Sutter thinks Stoll would be a good coach | 03/20/2014 9:04 AM
News
Kings head coach Darryl Sutter thinks Jarret Stoll will be a good coach someday.
LAKingsInsider.com

Impact
"Well-trained, great practice habits, knows the game, understands his role," Sutter offered as a description of Stoll. He added that he isn't sure if Stoll has a desire to coach someday, but it does speak to the type of guy he is. Stoll isn't an offensive force and consequently isn't helpful in standard fantasy leagues, but he helps the team kill penalties and is great on the draw.

News
Martin Jones yielded only two goals in the Kings' 2-1 loss to the Ducks on Saturday night.
Rotoworld.com

Impact
He blocked 18 shots. Jones was making his first start since March 10. Jonathan Quick had been ill, but he was dressed for this game. Jones has a 1.90 goals-against average and .932 save percentage. As talented as he is, Jones shouldn't expect too many starts down the stretch.
Tyler Toffoli ends nine-game goal skid | 03/16/2014 1:25 AM
News
Tyler Toffoli potted the only marker for the Kings in their 2-1 loss to the Ducks on Saturday night.

News
Jonathan Quick (illness) didn't take to the ice Saturday morning for the Kings' optional skate and it's unclear if he'll be available to play against Anaheim.
LAKingsInsider.com

Impact
When coach Darryl Sutter was asked if Quick would be able to dress he made comments like "we'll see" and "we don't know," so a starter probably won't be identified until the pregame warmups. If Quick is unable to play then Martin Jones will get the nod.

Kings-Ducks has a playoff feel | 03/15/2014 8:23 AM
News
Kings-Ducks on Saturday night could be a playoff preview.
LA Times

Impact
If anything, it's a measuring-stick game for each team, the Kings winners of eight of nine and the Ducks snapping a four-game losing streak Friday night. "Nothing against the teams we've played but they haven't put up the points that a team like Anaheim has," Willie Mitchell said. "Toronto was a step in that direction. It was a game we lost. They didn't catch us by surprise by any means. I just think that we didn't play a solid 60 minutes, and playing against Anaheim we're going to have to play a solid 60 minutes to win the hockey game. That's just a given. Those games are going to be key for us just getting into the playoffs to win those games, and also just getting ready for the playoffs."

News
Dustin Brown is dealing with an illness and consequently skipped Friday's practice.
LAKingsInsider.com

Impact
