NHL Preview from The Sports Network



Monday, November 25th (All times Eastern)

Los Angeles Kings (15-6-3) at Vancouver Canucks (12-9-4), 10 p.m.

(SportsNetwork.com) - The Los Angeles Kings and Vancouver Canucks have both had their issues scoring goals of late and the two look to break out in a matchup on Monday night.

The Kings have gone 6-0-3 over their last nine games despite having been held to three goals or fewer in eight of 10 contests this month. Los Angeles has failed to score more than two goals six times in that span.

The Canucks, meanwhile, have lost six of their last seven and have scored just six non-shootout goals in the six setbacks.

Vancouver seemed to break out with a 6-2 win over Columbus on Friday, but fell back into a funk the following night in a 2-1 setback to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Ryan Kesler scored a power-play goal with 1:27 left to go in the first period, but the Canucks' offense went cold from there and the Blackhawks scored twice in a nine-second span during the third period to rally to victory.

Roberto Luongo turned aside 27 chances for Vancouver, which fell to 1-2-2 on its six-game homestand that ends tonight.

"I thought we did a lot of good things, but we beat ourselves tonight. We played a good game," said Canucks coach John Tortorella.

The Kings have dropped two straight in overtime and were shut out for the first time this season with Saturday's 1-0 overtime setback to the Colorado Avalanche. Los Angeles played without forwards Jeff Carter, Trevor Lewis and Matt Frattin, while goaltender Jonathan Quick remains out.

Ben Scrivens has been excellent in replacing Quick, going 4-0-2 with a 1.15 goals against average and .955 save percentage in six games since Quick's groin strain.

Scrivens made 32 saves in Saturday's loss and saw Colorado's overtime winner hit off teammate Jarret Stoll following a save.

"We played a good game. (We're) having trouble scoring right now," said Kings head coach Darryl Sutter. "We've got a lot of guys out of the lineup. ... It's hard. You're mixing. It's sort of like diversifying your portfolio."

The Kings didn't have much trouble scoring when they faced the Canucks for the first time this season on Nov. 9. Tyler Toffoli had two goals and an assist, while Mike Richards notched a goal and a pair of helpers in the 5-1 win.

Quick made 25 saves for Los Angeles, which snapped a two-game series losing streak with the home win. It has lost seven of its last nine in Vancouver.

Scrivens has never faced the Canucks, while Luongo made just 14 saves on 18 shots in the loss before getting pulled after 32 minutes of work.

Luongo fell to 14-10-4 with a 2.31 GA in 28 career meetings with the Kings.
