Stoll is looking for ‘more than one or two goals’ vs Anaheim

Jarret Stoll just continues to do whatever is asked of him.

Coming into the season, the Kings needed Stoll to become the team’s new third line center, dropping down a line to make room for newly-acquired Mike Richards. Then, a few weeks ago, he was moved to right wing in an attempt to improve LA’s anemic offensive output. Now, for the last four periods, he’s been back as the second line center, due to an injury suffered by Richards (coming on a hit by Sean Bergenheim) in the second period of last Thursday’s game with Florida.

Tonight, the Kings will travel to Anaheim and play in a building Stoll seems to enjoy playing in, picking up 14 points (three goals, 11 assists) in 16 career games.  He also has recorded more shots on goal there (41 total) than in any other road city.

LA will have a new obstacle though, Bruce Boudreau will be behind the bench for Anaheim. Since being hired last week, the Ducks have gone 0-2 for their new leader.  Yet, they scored three goals in both losses – a feat the Kings haven’t accomplished in two weeks.

“They’re all tough games and (this) one will be too. They will be a highly incented group to play hard and play smart for him and get a win for him,” said Stoll, while referencing the Ducks new head coach. “We have to bring our game. We have to pick up our game. Our number one focus is probably scoring and putting the puck in the back of the net, getting more than one or two goals.”

If that’s going to happen, his line will most likely need to contribute.

Stoll has only one goal in his last 21 games and his right wing, Trent Hunter, has yet to score a goal this season. Meanwhile, Dustin Brown will be looking to continue his recent strong play at left wing.

Game time is 7pm.
