End of the Road for Kings Point Streak (w/ video)

Prior to the game Kings Coach Terry Murray said the team needed a win over the Islanders to make a good road trip a great one.

So, 3-1-2 is going to have to be good enough.

Clearly, his players weren’t ready to go when the puck first dropped. However, the same cant be said for the home team, who perhaps hadn’t forgotten the 5-1 beat down they received in LA back in November.

That lone goal at Staples Center came from Rob Schremp, who played on the same line with Kings captain Dustin Brown back in his bantam hockey days (as explained here by his agent). Unfortunately, Brown couldn’t match the marker on Saturday night.

Instead, another player with ties to the Kings scored twice for the Islanders. Matt Moulson, once a prospect in the LA system and the brother-in law of Jonathan Quick, posted tallies in the second and third periods.

Here it is in a nutshell though - Quick didn’t look sharp at all, while the guy at the other end of the ice (Al Montoya, he of only four previous NHL starts – half of which were against the Kings) stopped all of LA’s 35 shots.

So, after being shutout 3-0 the team is on their way back to Los Angeles. Sunday is an off day and practice will resume Monday at TSC in El Segundo.
