Poulin allwed two goals on 23 shots (.913) as the punchless Islanders lost at Los Angeles on Saturday night, 3-0.If you're tempted to pick up an Islanders goalie, we urge Nancy Reagan's advice: Just Say No. Of the three netminders on the roster (Poulin, plus Anders Nilsson and injured starter Evgeni Nabokov), none has a goals-against average under 3.10 and none has a save percentage above .895.
Toffoli found nylon for the seventh time this season in Saturday's 3-0 win over visiting New York. He had three shots and ended the night plus-1.As usual, he didn't get a lot of ice time; he skated just over 10 minutes, including 1:31 on Los Angeles power plays. But he has 12 points in just 16 games, and leads the Kings in game-winning goals with four. If you can hold him long-term, he represents an excellent investment.
Kopitar's second-period goal proved to be the game-winner in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Islanders. He leads the Kings with 25 points (8G, 17A) in 30 games.This marker snaps a four-game goalless streak for the Kings' best fantasy skater.
In just his second NHL start, Jones shut out the Islanders on Saturday night, 3-0. He benefited from the Kings' shut-down defense, as the visitors from Long Island were only able to muster 16 shots on the night.The Kings now have a wonderful problem, in that they apparently have two excellent backup goalies in Jones and Ben Scrivens. Neither is at all likely to permanently displace injured starter Jonathan Quick, but in the meantime, Los Angeles fans are enjoying an embarassment of goaltending riches.
Hall scored a game-tying goal with 11 seconds left in regulation in Saturday's game against Calgary. He fired seven shots and finished plus-1 in a game eventually won by the Flames, 2-1.That's six points in five days (comprising three games) for the young winger, who continues to hover just above the point-per-game pace.
