Reporting from Detroit — Defenseman Davis Drewiske forgot that goal scorers usually linger after games to talk to reporters, but his lapse Thursday was understandable. Before his shot got through a screen for the first goal in the Kings' 2-1 victory over the Blue Jackets, he had not scored since Oct. 6, 2009 — and that was into an empty net. His feat Thursday drew huge smiles from his teammates, who knew of his drought and as well as their shutout streak of 130 minutes 35 seconds over three games.

MONTREAL, Canada - Bonjour from windy Montreal. It's usually a big shock to leave Los Angeles and experience winter weather here, but the chilly temperatures back home made the transition a little easier this time. Martin Jones, coming off a shootout win over the Ducks on Tuesday and a shutout win over the New York Islanders on Saturday, was the first goalie off the ice at the Kings' morning skate Tuesday at the Bell Center. Coach Darryl Sutter declined to identify his starter - as he usually does - and added, “It's not necessarily the one who comes out first, though.” That was a reference to what happened before the Islanders game, when it appeared Ben Scrivens would start but Sutter made a late switch to Jones because Sutter said Scrivens was “a little dinged up.” Jones went on to earn his first NHL shutout.

The Ducks acquired center Matthew Lombardi from the Phoenix Coyotes for left wing Brandon McMillan on Wednesday, a deal completed shortly before the NHL's noon Pacific time trade deadline. The Kings made no trades on Wednesday. They made their big move on Monday when they acquired defenseman Robyn Regehr from the Buffalo Sabres for second-round draft picks in 2014 and 2015. Regehr passed the necessary medical exams and practiced with the Kings for the first time on Wednesday. They also traded spare defenseman Davis Drewiske to Montreal on Tuesday for a fifth-round pick in this year's draft.

The Stanley Cup made its first public appearance Saturday since the Kings' names were inscribed on it, and the updated trophy contained a surprise. The name of club co-owner Ed Roski, omitted from the original list submitted to the NHL and the Hockey Hall of Fame, is on the top line following the names of owner Phil Anschutz, Anschutz's wife, Nancy, and Tim Leiweke, head of the Kings' parent company. That gave the Kings 53 names on the Cup, one above the limit, but Roski's ownership role was considered important enough for the league to add his name.

Goaltender Jonathan Quick, 7-1-1 in his last nine games, is scheduled to start.

The Kings' morning skate on Monday was optional, and many players took the option to work out off the ice instead of on it. But two lineup changes were apparent for Monday night's game at Staples Center against the Nashville Predators: Jonathan Bernier will start in goal in place of Jonathan Quick, and defenseman Alec Martinez will return to the lineup after missing eight games. Bernier owns the Predators and has faced them seven times, more than he has faced any other NHL opponent.

The Kings were eventually going to take a decent, up-close look at promising forward Tyler Toffoli, but his arrival in Los Angeles was hastened by a look at the statistics. Kings Coach Darryl Sutter has talked often about the lack of scoring coming from the left side, and expanded on that on Monday after the morning skate. Sutter noted that they were “halfway into the year,” with wingers with one or no goals. Increased competition, from the likes of Toffoli, might jump-start some of the lagging wingers.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - There was no anguish in the Kings' locker room after their 3-1 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday, no gnashing of their remaining teeth as they ended a five-game trip with a commendable 3-1-1 record. "We could have won every game. We played well enough to win every game," Coach Darryl Sutter said. "That's the way it goes. " The difference on Tuesday was a 39-save performance in goal from ex-King Jason LaBarbera, who was beaten only by a shot by Justin Williams that deflected off Phoenix defenseman Michael Stone at 12:12 of the second period.

The Kings acquired defenseman Keaton Ellerby from the Florida Panthers on Feb. 8 almost out of desperation, after they had lost defensemen Matt Greene (back surgery) and Willie Mitchell (knee surgery) for extended periods of time and before they lost Alec Martinez to an upper-body injury. Martinez missed eight games and is scheduled to play Monday against Nashville, the first of the three injured defensemen to return. Ellerby will keep his spot in the lineup and instead, Davis Drewiske will sit out. Ellerby, 24, has proved a good find - especially for the modest price of a fifth-round pick in the 2013 entry draft.

Sure, this is a short season. But a Canadian columnist might have been rushing things a tad when he suggested the Kings' Stanley Cup defense was doomed after they had lost their first three games. "OK, so 0-2-1 isn't the end of the world. But in a 48-game season, can the Kings see it from here?" Mark Spector wrote for sportsnet.ca. Uh, no. The Kings' start was hardly perfect, but it didn't blow up their chances of repeating. This is the same team that scrambled out of the depths of the Western Conference last season to grab the No. 8 seeding, learning at each step how to overcome doubts and deficits.

This was as thorough a beating as the Kings have absorbed in a while, a performance that went from abysmal to grotesque as they allowed the Detroit Red Wings to collect a season's worth of highlight-film moments in 60 playing minutes. The Kings' 8-2 loss at Joe Louis Arena, their sixth defeat in seven games, represented a season-worst in goals against and lack of passion. Darryl Sutter, confirmed Saturday as their next coach by a source familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly, is facing a bigger job than he might have imagined.
