Kings eyeing first home win of the month

Feb 21, 2009 - 2:18 PM Phoenix (26-28-5) at Los Angeles (25-23-9), 4:00 pm EST

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- If the Los Angeles Kings want to treat their fans to a win this month, they better act fast.

The Kings will look to snap a three-game home losing streak Saturday when they host the Phoenix Coyotes.

Los Angeles, which is 0-1-2 at the Staples Center since January 29, will embark on a five-game road trip after this contest. Despite their struggles at home during February, the Kings have still posted a 5-2-2 record this month.

Alexander Frolov and Michal Handzus tallied during Thursday's 4-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks.

The Coyotes, who are coached by former Kings superstar Wayne Gretzky, are coming off a 4-3 shootout victory over the Atlanta Thrashers on Thursday. Daniel Carcillo scored the decisive goal in the eighth round of the bonus format.

Joakim Lindstrom, rookie Viktor Tikhanov and Steven Goertzen all tallied in regulation for Phoenix, which snapped a three-game losing streak.
