New Jersey Devils

NEWARK, N.J. — Mackenzie Blackwood stopped a penalty shot and made 37 saves in posting his second straight shutout and the New Jersey Devils beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-0 Saturday night. Nikita Gusev, Blake Coleman and Kyle Palmieri scored for the Devils, who extended their points streak to a season-high six games. They are 3-0-3 since returning from the All-Star break. Calvin Petersen, who was recalled from Ontario of the AHL following the trade of backup goaltender Jack Campbell to Toronto, made 31 saves in his season debut. Blackwood, who made 46 saves in a 5-0 win over the Flyers on Thursday, stopped 13 shots in the scoreless first period. He was a little lucky as Michael Amadio clanged one off the goalpost. The 23-year-old rookie goalie stopped Anze Kopitar on the penalty shot after the Kings' captain was hooked breaking in alone on a power play with New Jersey ahead 3-0 in the second period.

Kings History

Seven men have reached the 100-point plateau a combined 23 times in Los Angeles Kings history. One is the only player in franchise history to score 70 or more goals in a single season. Two joined the team together as rookies. Three played together on one of the top-producing lines in NHL history. Four have their sweaters hanging on the Staples Center wall, and five is how many times the Great One broke 100 points while playing for the Kings. The Triple Crown Line - Dionne, Taylor, and Simmer When Kings head coach Bob Berry inserted AHL-call up Charlie Simmer alongside Marcel Dionne and Dave Taylor midway through the 1978-79 season he could not have possibly imagined the trio would not only soon be collectively known as the Triple Crown Line, but that 40 years later it would still be recognized as one the most explosive lines in NHL history. In 1980-81 all three linemates reached the 100-point mark, the first time in NHL history that three players from the same team had done...

NHL Rumors

In today's NHL rumor rundown, there's new on the Los Angeles Kings and forward Tyler Toffoli, buzz around what the Calgary Flames will do if Mark Giordano is hurt for any length of time, and could Jack Eichel actually be looking for a way out of Buffalo if the Sabres don't make the playoffs? One insider asked that question and the rest of the TSN panel don't know if it's too far off from happening? Giordano Still Being Evaluated According to Kristen Anderson of the Calgary Sun, there is no word yet regarding the status of defenseman Mark Giordano. Giordano underwent an MRI for a lower-body injury suffered during Tuesday’s 3-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks but there's no telling how long he'll be out of action for. Mark Giordano, Calgary Flames (THE CANADIAN PRESS/Ben Nelms) Anderson writes: They’ll likely deliver more news publicly on Thursday morning and, also, give an indication of their short-term solutions. Their long-term solutions, however, could be more...

Toronto Maple Leafs

Toronto Maple Leafs GM Kyle Dubas took the initial steps towards filling a couple of glaring holes in the lineup when he made his first big trade of this season's road to the NHL Trade Deadline. On Wednesday, he acquired the team's new back-up goalie and a little bit of toughness, two things the Maple Leafs drastically needed help with. It was rumored Dubas was kicking tires on a backup netminder of out of Los Angeles on Tuesday and that turned out to be true as the Maple Leafs traded for Jack Campbell and while they were at it, Dubas landed Kyle Clifford to give a little punch to their lineup. In exchange, the Maple Leafs GM sent Trevor Moore, a third-round pick in 2020, and a conditional third-round pick in 2021 back to the Kings. Jack Campbell As the Backup Campbell hasn't been stellar so far this season but he's not been terrible either. Behind a relatively poor Kings defense, he's managed to go 8-10-2...
