When The LA Kings Win, Trevor Lewis Usually Has Something To Do With It

EL SEGUNDO, CA — Don’t look now, but not only has Los Angeles Kings forward Trevor Lewis scored a career-high 13 goals in 52 games this season, but…get this…he’s on pace to score 21 goals this season.

But before you get too excited about that possibility, the reality is that as injured forward Jeff Carter gets closer and closer to returning (no, there is nothing new to report on Carter), the chances of Lewis reaching the 20-goal mark grows increasingly remote.

“Sometimes, with guys out, you get a little more opportunity,” said head coach John Stevens. “Jeff has been out all year, and now Adrian [Kempe’s] got, I think, 15 goals now. When we get Jeff back in our lineup, those guys, [Lewis included], will become our secondary scoring. The opportunities on the power play may not be there as often.”

LOS ANGELES — On January 13, the Los Angeles Kings will honor legendary, Hall of Fame play-by-play announcer Bob Miller, who retired last April after 44 years behind the Kings’ microphone.

Prior to Saturday’s game against the Anaheim Ducks, the Kings will unveil a statue of Miller in Staples Center’s Star Plaza, and a banner that will hang permanently with those of the Kings players who have had their jersey numbers retired.

But before all that, the most important question is: How is Miller doing, in terms of his health?

EL SEGUNDO, CA — One day after coming from ahead to drop a 4-3 decision to the Calgary Flames on January 4 in Calgary, the Los Angeles Kings went over their performance, especially their poor second period, during meetings at their practice facility, the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, California.

“We weren’t very good in Calgary,” said head coach John Stevens. “That was one of our poorer games of the year, probably. I thought we got off to a good start, but we mismanaged the puck, didn’t match their level of urgency, and spent too much time in our zone. Even their third and fourth lines created a lot with their urgency.”

EL SEGUNDO, CA — After the Los Angeles Kings’ overtime loss to the Vegas Golden Knights on December 28 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, a reporter noted that rookie forward Alex Iafallo was not on the ice very much, and asked head coach John Stevens if Iafallo was hurt.

“He was not hurt,” said Stevens, very abruptly, and without elaboration.

That’s not exactly a ringing endorsement, to be sure.
