Kings stat of the game: Johnathan Quick 5-1-1 in the month of February
The Kings need to start winning at home. They are on a current 3-game skid, and beating teams that are also in the running for that 8th and final playoff spot is crucial. The Coyotes coming to town usually is a bad thing for the Kings, as the Coyotes have won 4 of the last 5 meetings at the Staples Center and 8 out of the last 11 meetings overall. The Coyotes have been on a slide since the All-Star break only winning 2 of their last 11.
Jonathan Quick will be back in goal tonight after Ersberg started and looked shaky in San Jose. That should be a welcome return as Quick has arguably been the best goalie in the NHL in February. I'm guessing Ilya Bryzgalov, who is 6-1-0 against the Kings, will be in goal for the Coyotes.
Game is about to start, lets go Kings!
