INJURY UPDATE/VIDEO INTERVIEWS: Story also includes updates on the injury status of Matt Greene and Trevor Lewis, along with video interviews with Greene, Lewis, Martin Jones, Ben Scrivens, Darryl Sutter, and a fascinating, don’t miss interview with goaltending coach Bill Ranford.
LOS ANGELES AND EL SEGUNDO, CA — Goalie Gate, as one member of the local media has dubbed it, took a another twist after the Los Angeles Kings wrapped up their practice on December 8.
To review, goaltender Ben Scrivens led the team onto the ice for warm-ups, and because tradition dictates that the starting goaltender lead the team onto the ice, that “confirmed” that he would start against the New York Islanders at Staples Center on December 7.
But rookie Martin Jones got the call instead, starting his second consecutive game—the first two games of his National Hockey League career—earning a 3-0 shutout victory.
