Kings' Pheonix Copley: Cruises to shutout Saturday
Copley made 18 saves in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Canadiens.
The Kings outshot Montreal 30-18 on the afternoon in a dominant performance. Copley was rarely tested as he picked up his first shutout of the season and the third of his career. The 31-year-old netminder has yet to lose in regulation this season, going 3-0-2 in six appearances, but his 3.04 GAA and .868 save percentage aren't making a strong case to cut into Cam Talbot's workload....

Kings' Pheonix Copley: Tending twine Saturday
Copley will patrol the home crease Saturday against Montreal, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.
Copley is coming off a 30-save performance in Monday's 4-1 win over Arizona. He has a 2-0-2 record this season with a 3.75 GAA and an .845 save percentage in five appearances. Montreal is tied for 25th in the league with 2.85 goals per game this campaign.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Pheonix Copley: Stops 30 in win
Copley stopped 30 of 31 shots in Monday's 4-1 win over the Coyotes.
Lawson Crouse's goal late in the second period was the lone blemish on Copley's line Monday as the 31-year-old netminder put together his best effort of the season to earn his second win. Copley had struggled to a .792 save percentage through his first four starts this season, though Monday's performance boosted that number to .845. The Kings play back-to-back games Friday and Saturday, lining up Copley for a potential two-start week.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Pheonix Copley: Slated to start in Arizona
Copley is expected to guard the road net Monday against Arizona, per Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site, after being the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate.
Copley permitted three goals on six shots in just 8:21 of ice time prior to being pulled in a 5-4 win over the Coyotes on Oct. 27. Cam Talbot stopped 17 of 18 shots to pick up the win in relief. Copley made 16 saves in a 4-3 overtime loss to Pittsburgh on Nov. 9 during his last start. He has allowed 15 goals on 72 shots in four appearances this season en route to a 1-0-2 record. Arizona is tied for 16th in the league with 3.24 goals per contest this campaign.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Pheonix Copley: Unimpressive Thursday
Copley allowed four goals on 20 shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Penguins.
Copley handled the second half of a back-to-back and at least guided the Kings to one standings point. The 31-year-old has failed to make much of an impact this season, going 1-0-2 with 15 goals allowed over four appearances. Cam Talbot has gained control of the starting role and should be between the pipes Saturday versus the Flyers.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Pheonix Copley: Draws start Thursday
Copley will guard home goal versus the Penguins on Thursday, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.
This will be the first time the Kings have not stuck with a winning goalie for the next game, though it's fair to say Cam Talbot earned some rest after defeating Vegas on Wednesday. Copley's last action came Oct. 27 versus the Coyotes when he allowed three goals on six shots in a short start. The 31-year-old will face a Penguins team that has won three of its last five games....

Kings' Pheonix Copley: Quick hook Friday
Copley stopped three of six shots in Friday's 5-4 win over the Coyotes.
While the Kings ultimately rallied for a win, Copley's poor effort at the start put them in an early hole. He lasted just 8:21 into the game before ceding the crease to Cam Talbot, who gave up a goal within his first minute in the game. With 11 goals allowed on 52 shots through three outings, Copley's not doing himself any favors for earning more playing time. He could be at risk of losing the backup job altogether if the Kings opt to call up David Rittich at any point.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Pheonix Copley: Slated to start against Yotes
Copley is expected to get the starting nod in Friday's road matchup with Arizona, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.
Copley will make consecutive starts for the first time this season after Cam Talbot played in four of the club's six contests. While Talbot has gotten the bulk of the workload, Copley could take a bigger share of the netminding duties if he can put together a handful of strong performances.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Pheonix Copley: Allows three goals in win
Copley stopped 24 of 27 shots in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Coyotes.
Copley was steady enough to get the win, with plenty of help from the Kings' offense. The 31-year-old netminder is now 1-0-1 on the year with eight goals allowed on 46 shots. While it wasn't a dominant start, the Kings have so far allowed a winning goalie to start the next game. If that holds true, Copley would get a rematch with the Coyotes in Arizona on Friday....

Kings' Pheonix Copley: Tending twine Tuesday
Copley will patrol the home crease Tuesday against Arizona, per Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site.
Copley will make his second start of the season after allowing five goals on 19 shots in a 6-5 shootout loss to Carolina on Oct. 14. Cam Talbot played in the past three games for the Kings, going 2-1-0 with a .905 save percentage over that span.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Pheonix Copley: Ugly showing in shootout loss
Copley surrendered five goals on 19 shots in Saturday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.
Copley didn't perform very well from the start, yielding three goals in the first period. In the shootout, he allowed three goals on nine attempts. The 31-year-old was a stabilizing force for the Kings' goaltending last year, but this was a brutal first impression in 2023-24, though Cam Talbot wasn't much better in Wednesday's season opener. Both goalies will likely split starts in the early going, and that could last all season if one doesn't pull ahead of the other.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Pheonix Copley: Facing Hurricanes
Copley will patrol the home crease Saturday against Carolina, per Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site.
Copley will play in the Kings' second game of the 2023-24 campaign after Cam Talbot was between the pipes for Wednesday's 5-2 loss to Colorado. The 31-year-old Copley posted a mark of 24-6-3 last season with one shutout, a 2.64 GAA and a .903 save percentage in 37 appearances. He is expected to share starts with Cam Talbot during the 2023-24 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Pheonix Copley: Makes relief appearance
Copley stopped six of eight shots in relief of Joonas Korpisalo in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Oilers in Game 5.
The Oilers eased up a bit after Copley got into the contest, and the 31-year-old netminder still didn't put in a great effort. This was his first game action since April 8, and he's failed to record a win in his last four appearances. The Kings' season will be on the line in Game 6 on Saturday, but it seems likely Korpisalo will get the nod in that one.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Pheonix Copley: Surrenders four goals
Copley stopped 19 of 23 shots in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Avalanche.
Copley is starting to skid a bit, losing his last two starts. He's stopped 71 of 77 shots over his last three appearances. For the season, the 31-year-old netminder is at 24-6-3 with a 2.64 GAA and a .903 save percentage through 37 outings. The Kings' last two games are favorable matchups -- they host the Canucks on Monday and visit the Ducks on Thursday -- so both Copley and Joonas Korpisalo should have a chance to get on track prior to the playoffs....

Kings' Pheonix Copley: Facing Avalanche
Per Eric Stephens of The Athletic, Copley was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, putting him on track to patrol the home crease versus Colorado on Saturday.
Copley played well in his last start Tuesday against the Oilers, turning aside 30 of 32 shots, but he still came away with a loss due to insufficient goal support from his teammates. He'll attempt to secure his 25th win of the season in a tough home matchup with a surging Avalanche team that's won six of its last seven games.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Pheonix Copley: Strong in relief appearance
Copley stopped all 22 shots he faced in relief of Joonas Korpisalo in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights.
The damage was already done by the time Copley entered the game early in the second period. The 31-year-old has allowed more than two goals only once in nine appearances since the start of March. For the season, he's at 24-5-3 with a 2.60 GAA and a .905 save percentage through 36 games. Copley should be considered likely to start Saturday versus the Avalanche.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Pheonix Copley: Win streak snapped
Copley gave up two goals on 32 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Oilers. The third goal was an empty-netter.
Copley entered Tuesday having won his last four outings. He wasn't tested much early on, but he couldn't keep pace as the Oilers' power play took over in the second half of the game. Copley slipped to 24-5-3 with a 2.65 GAA and a .902 save percentage through 35 games this season. While he played well, it wouldn't be surprising to see Joonas Korpisalo get the start Thursday in Vegas.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Pheonix Copley: Set to face Oilers
Copley was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports, indicating he will start Tuesday's home game against Edmonton.
Copley has won his past four outings, including a 25-save performance in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Seattle. Through 34 contests this season, he has a 24-4-3 record with a 2.67 GAA and a .901 save percentage. Copley made 28 stops in a 6-3 win over Edmonton on Jan. 9. The Oilers rank first in the league this campaign with 3.97 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Pheonix Copley: Turns in solid win
Copley stopped 25 of 26 shots in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Kraken.
A low-scoring game finally went the Kings' way, with Copley's strong play a large part of the win. He limited the damage to an Oliver Bjorkstrand power-play tally in the third period, which came on a scrambled and failed clearance in the slot. This was Copley's fourth straight win, and he's allowed 10 goals in that span. For the season, the 31-year-old is at 24-4-3 with a 2.67 GAA and a .901 save percentage through 34 appearances. It'll likely be Joonas Korpisalo between the pipes for Sunday's road-trip finale in Vancouver.... See More ... See Less
