Up next for the Kings: Monday vs. Boston

Kings go for a season sweep of the Bruins and are looking to build some momentum after ending a three-game losing streak Saturday.

January 24, 2011

When: 7:30.

Where: Staples Center.

On the air: TV: FS West; Radio: 1150.

Records: Kings 25-22-1, Bruins 27-14-7.

Record vs. Bruins: 1-0.

Update: Goaltender Jonathan Quick will start for the Kings, who ended a three-game losing streak with a 4-3 victory Saturday at Phoenix. Quick stopped 38 Bruins shots on Nov. 20 in the Kings' 4-3 shootout victory at Boston. The Kings have not scored a power-play goal in seven games, going 0-for-22 since Justin Williams scored a power-play goal into an empty net Jan. 8. Defenseman Rob Scuderi didn't practice Sunday and a team spokesman said Scuderi took a maintenance day. The Bruins will be without center Marc Savard, who suffered a head injury Saturday for the second time in a week. He missed the first 23 games of the season while recovering from a concussion he suffered last March. Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas leads the NHL in goals-against average (1.83), save percentage (.945) and shutouts (seven).
