NHL Preview from The Sports Network



Saturday, November 30th (All times Eastern)

Calgary Flames (8-13-4) at Los Angeles Kings (16-6-4), 10 p.m.

(SportsNetwork.com) - The Los Angeles Kings aim to extend their point streak to a club-record 12 straight games on Saturday night in a home meeting with the Calgary Flames.

The Kings have gone 7-0-4 since their last regulation loss on Nov. 2 versus Nashville. Three of those setbacks have come in their past four games, however, including a 3-2 shootout setback to the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday.

Ben Scrivens made 38 saves through overtime and stopped six of the first seven skaters he faced in the shootout before failing to deny Joe Thornton's backhander in the eighth round. Tyler Toffoli then failed to extend the tiebreaker.

"It was a fun game," said Scrivens, who picked up the first assist of his career. "It's my first time in San Jose. It's a loud rink, good fan support. That's great for the league, we love to see that."

In his second game back after being sidelined with a foot injury, Jeff Carter scored 18 seconds into the game and Drew Doughty also tallied to help extend the Kings' string of consecutive games with a point.

The run currently matches the longest point streak in team history; a 9-0-2 run in 1973-74 and an 8-0-3 burst in 2010-11.

Scrivens has never faced the Flames, with injured netminder Jonathan Quick making 22 saves in a 3-2 loss at home to Calgary on Oct. 21.

Los Angeles had won four straight and was 8-1-1 in its previous 10 versus Calgary going into that game and had a two-game series home win streak snapped.

Like Wednesday, Carter and Doughty had the goals for the Kings, while T.J. Brodie had the winner with 30 seconds to play for the Flames.

Mike Cammalleri had a goal and an assist, while Karri Ramo made 27 saves in his career start versus the Kings.

Ramo was already scheduled to start tonight's game and was forced into action on Friday night in a 5-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks. Reto Berra yielded five goals on 38 shots before getting lifted late in the third period, with Ramo turning aside all four shots he faced.

"They just stormed around (Berra's) net. I don't think any goalie would have made a difference. They're a big team, they crash the net, they generate lots of traffic and they took advantage of a couple of mistakes on our part," said Flames head coach Bob Hartley.

Ladislav Smid and David Jones scored for the Flames, who have dropped three of their last four and gone just 2-7-2 in their previous 11.

Calgary also saw its road losing streak versus Anaheim extended to 18 straight games as it played without Dennis Wideman, Sean Monahan, T.J. Galiardi, Curtis Glencross and Mark Giordano due to injury. Wideman and Monahan recently joined the list of walking wounded.
