Kings aiming for two straight, host Devils

Nov 27, 2006 - 3:22 PM New Jersey (12-9-1) at Los Angeles (8-13-4) 10:00 pm EST

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Kings and the New Jersey Devils both look to play better when they meet on Monday.

Los Angeles hasn't won two straight games since the opening week of the season.

The Kings are coming off a 3-1 victory vs. Calgary on Saturday. Mathieu Garon stopped 22 shots and Alexander Frolov scored his 11th goal in his last 12 games for Los Angeles, which has lost two of three and three of its last five games.

The third-year left wing has 14 goals and leads the Kings with 24 points.

New Jersey is looking to avoid a season-high fourth straight loss. The Devils lost 2-0 on Saturday to the San Jose Sharks. It was their third straight loss away from home on this current five-game road trip.

The Devils have scored a total of three goals during the losing streak, and are just 1-for-19 on the power-play in the past four games.

Martin Brodeur turned aside 25 of 26 shots Saturday, allowing two goals or fewer for the ninth time in his last 13 starts.

Brodeur is 4-2-0 with a 1.65 GAA in six career road starts against the Kings, while New Jersey has three wins and an overtime loss in its last four visits to Los Angeles.
