Update: Despite the Kings' three-game losing streak, Coach Terry Murray canceled Sunday's scheduled practice, providing recovery time for the 10 to 12 players who have reported flu symptoms. He said most players were feeling better and that the worst of the illness appeared to be behind them. He also said mental mistakes have been undermining the team's efforts but also that not everyone is contributing offensively. "The Kopitar line has been doing the big majority of the scoring. There needs to be more from other places and we're going to have to demand more," he said. The Stars have won two of their last three games under Coach Marc Crawford, who preceded Murray as the Kings' coach.
