Looking ahead to the Kings’ game Monday against the Vancouver Canucks

The Kings (15-6-3) have lost two in a row in overtime, but have gained at least one point in nine consecutive games (6-0-3). Goaltender Ben Scrivens is 4-0-2 in six starts since replacing the Kings’ No. 1 goalie Jonathan Quick, who suffered a groin strain Nov. 12 that might keep him out until Christmas at the earliest. Scrivens also has a 1.15 goals-against average, a .955 save percentage and two shutouts in his last six games. All is not rosy in the Kings’ world, however. They have scored only one goal in the last 125:02, having been beaten 1-0 in OT on Saturday by the Colorado Avalanche and 2-1 in extra time Thursday by the New Jersey Devils. Injured forwards Jeff Carter (foot), Matt Frattin (lower body) and Trevor Lewis (lower body) will not play in tonight’s game against the Canucks (12-9-4) in Vancouver or in Wednesday’s contest against the Sharks in San Jose. Anze Kopitar leads the Kings with 22 points (six goals, 16 assists). Henrik Sedin leads the Canucks with 24 points (six goals, 18 assists).
