Petersen will guard the road net in Saturday's game versus the Wild, Zach Dooley of LA Kings Insider reports.
The Wild beat Jonathan Quick on Friday night, scoring three goals on 30 shots. That extended the Wild's win streak to five games, and they averaged 4.6 goals per contest in that stretch. However, Petersen has been quite good all year, recording a .931 save percentage and a 4-4-1 record.
Petersen stopped 35 of 36 shots in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Blues.
Jonathan Quick shut out the Blues on Monday, and Petersen came within a couple of minutes of matching that performance. Oskar Sundqvist was the spoiler in Wednesday's contest, but Petersen held on for the win. The 26-year-old netminder improved to 4-4-1 with a 2.28 GAA and a .931 save percentage in 10 games. Head coach Todd McLellan has a good problem on his hands -- both of his goalies are playing well. Lucky for the boss, the Kings have a back-to-back in Minnesota on Friday and Saturday, which should lead to one start for each of Petersen and Quick.

Petersen will tend the road twine in Saturday's game versus the Coyotes, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.
Petersen served as Jonathan Quick's backup for the last two games. However, Petersen has earned at least a 1B role this season, as he's registered a .926 save percentage and a 2.49 GAA through eight appearances. The lack of offensive support has handed him a 2-4-1 record, and that's a material concern against Coyotes goalie Darcy Kuemper.
Petersen stopped 29 of 31 shots in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Sharks.
Petersen was on the hook for a 5-4 shootout loss in Tuesday's game, but he bounced back with an impressive win. The 26-year-old Petersen improved to 2-4-1 with a 2.49 GAA and a .926 save percentage in eight outings. He's started three straight games over Jonathan Quick, so Petersen appears to be the hot hand in Los Angeles. Fantasy managers in need of a goalie should roster him, but wins may be hard to come by.
Petersen will protect the home goal Thursday versus the Sharks, Patrick O'Neal of Fox Sports West reports.
Petersen continues to earn the trust of head coach Todd McLellan. Thursday marks Petersen's third straight start. He's allowed seven goals on 73 shots in the last two games, but the 26-year-old should give the Kings a good chance to win versus the Sharks.

Evander Kane tied the game for the Sharks, and Logan Couture beat Petersen for the lone tally in the shootout to complete the Kings' collapse. The 26-year-old Petersen slipped to 1-4-1 with a 2.56 GAA and a .925 save percentage in seven outings.

Petersen will defend the home net in Tuesday's game versus the Sharks, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Petersen will make a second straight start, as he's starting to pull away from Jonathan Quick as the Kings' top netminder. The 26-year-old sports a .925 save percentage and a 2.54 GAA through six games, averaging 31.3 shots against per contest. However, a lack of offensive support leaves him with a 1-4-0 record so far. The Sharks rank 26th in the league with just 2.50 goals per contest.
Petersen allowed four goals on 33 shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Golden Knights.
Three of the four goals were scored in a chaotic opening 12 minutes of the game, which saw Petersen struggle a bit. He was better over the final two periods, but without much support, a Chandler Stephenson power-play goal in the third sealed his loss. Petersen dipped to 1-4-0 with a 2.52 GAA and a .925 save percentage through six appearances. The 26-year-old shouldn't be judged too harshly for a loss to the powerful Golden Knights -- the Kings next play the Sharks for a pair of games Tuesday and Thursday, which makes for a much safer matchup.
Petersen will start in the road crease Sunday against the Golden Knights, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Petersen entered Friday's game in relief of Jonathan Quick, steering away 25 of 26 shots in the process. The 26-year-old will get another crack at it Sunday.

Quick was blitzed early in the first period, but Petersen saw a higher shot volume over the better part of the last two periods. Petersen also played better, a trend that's become more apparent through the early weeks of the season. The 26-year-old netminder has a 1-3-0 record with a 2.18 GAA and a .935 save percentage. While the Kings aren't likely to get many wins regardless of who's in goal, Petersen could be the better goalie to roster in this tandem. Fantasy managers will want to monitor Petersen's performance and playing time going forward.

Petersen has played well through four games this season, allowing nine goals on 128 shots for a .930 save percentage. Unfortunately for Petersen, the Kings have given him just six goals of support across his four starts. With little help from his teammates, Petersen's ratios are fine, but his record leaves plenty to be desired. If he keeps playing well, he could chip away at Jonathan Quick's playing time. For now, the 26-year-old Petersen's fantasy appeal is limited to deeper formats.
Petersen was the first goalie off the ice Tuesday, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports, indicating he will be between the pipes at home versus the Ducks.

After taking the loss in each of his first two starts of the season, Petersen got into the win column with a stellar effort. He was perfect through two periods before allowing a wraparound goal to Joel Eriksson Ek just 69 seconds into the final frame. Petersen performed well the previous two seasons in spot duty behind Jonathan Quick, posting a .923 save percentage over 19 appearances, and could claim a bigger share of the goaltending pie with more performances like this one.

Petersen has struggled early on this season, suffering a loss in each of his first two starts while posting a sub-par 3.09 GAA and .887 save percentage. He'll attempt to get back on track and secure his first win of the campaign in a road matchup with a Wild team that's 4-2-0 this year.
Petersen allowed three goals on 29 shots in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Blues. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.
Petersen got shaken up in a collision early in the first period, but he stayed in the game. Other than that, the Blues were simply the better team, sending Petersen to his second loss of the season. He's allowed six goals on 53 shots across two games -- performances like those won't earn him much extra playing time over Jonathan Quick, who will likely finish the back-to-back Sunday versus the Blues.
According to Lisa Dillman of The Athletic, Petersen was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, which suggests he'll get the start in goal in Saturday's road game versus the Blues.
Petersen wasn't great in his season debut Tuesday against the Avalanche, surrendering three goals on 24 shots en route to a 3-2 loss.

The Kings were down 3-0 after two periods, but Petersen was strong in the third, allowing them to get within a goal. It still went down as a loss for Petersen in his season debut. He posted a 2.64 GAA and a .922 save percentage in eight games last year and is set to be Jonathan Quick's primary backup in 2020-21. Petersen's fantasy value is limited to deep formats -- Quick will see a large chunk of the starts, and the Kings' rebuild will make wins hard to come by.

Petersen made 18 starts over the past two seasons, and he was quite impressive in the small sample, generating a .923 save percentage, a 2.62 GAA and a 10-7-1 record. The 26-year-old should garner a handful of spot starts this season as he looks to prove he can eventually be Jonathan Quick's successor. However, Petersen will have his hands full Tuesday, as the Avalanche are one of the most talented offensive teams in the league.
