Zucker scored on that backhand in a shootout to lift the Minnesota Wild to a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Trevor Lewis is not the glamor player on the Los Angeles Kings. Not a star like teammates Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown.
He is highly valued, though, and his worth was clear Thursday night when he returned to lead the Kings to a 3-1 victory over the Washington Capitals.
In his first game in two months, Lewis came down the far wall, took a shot, got the rebound and took another, and finally as the puck popped up as he skated by, he batted it into the net.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — New leadership, new ideas and new resolve. That's how the Los Angeles Kings believe they can restore their winning ways after missing the playoffs in two of the last three seasons.

Budaj, who wasn't even on the Kings' roster on opening night, extended his shutout streak to 144 minutes, 5 seconds. He made 17 saves.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — After so many nights of offensive struggle this season, the Los Angeles Kings scored on their opening shift and never let up on the woeful Colorado Avalanche.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Kings hit iron with an extraordinary number of shots Saturday night, culminating in a late backhand by Kyle Clifford that somehow struck both sides of Winnipeg's goal without going in.
"He can't hit the net, but he can hit both posts," Los Angeles defenseman Jake Muzzin said jokingly of his low-scoring buddy.
Dustin Brown and Jeff Carter made sure all those near-misses didn't matter for the surging Kings.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — After his Minnesota Wild clinched the best first-half record in franchise history with an overtime loss Saturday, Bruce Boudreau can officially make plans to be back at Staples Center in a few weeks to coach in the NHL All-Star game.
"I'd rather have the other point," Boudreau said.
The Los Angeles Kings earned that other point while Jeff Carter bolstered his own case for a spot in the big midseason showcase.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — After struggling for most of December, the Los Angeles Kings know they have some catching up to do. Sweeping a home-and-home from the first-place San Jose Sharks sure is a good start.
