Last week, underachieving yet aching Jarrett Stoll was placed on injured reserve. Defenseman Slava Voynov was also moved, albeit demoted to the AHL’s Manchester Monarchs. In their place arrived two young forwards, Dwight King and Jordan Nolan, making their NHL debuts. This afternoon the duo achieved just that, notching a combined three points en route to a Kings victory.

Nolan was responsible for netting the team’s game-winning goal 11:29 into the...

Streit Stuns Kings- Islanders 2 Kings 1 (OT)

Mark Streit found himself in a position he isn’t normally used to.

In overtime, he found himself all alone in front of Los Angeles Kings goal-tender Jonathan Quick with the game on the line.

A backhand Frans Nielsen would be proud of later, the New York Islanders were mobbing Streit in the corner, amidst a wild celebration.
