What the Kings got when they acquired center Jason Allison is becoming more and more apparent. Allison had a nine-game point streak, a career high, before Thursday's game against the Ducks. The Kings were 6-1-2 in those games. He had two goals in that streak, both deflected off a defenseman late in the third period to give the Kings 1-1 ties against Nashville and Phoenix. "It's difficult to say how good Jason Allison is or can be," King Coach Andy Murray said.

It has been a year since center Jason Allison last played in a game, 365 days of frustration that began with a whiplash injury against New Jersey, and a return date still is as opaque as ever. Allison remains an invisible part of the Kings, showing up as early as 7 a.m. for off-ice workouts at the team training complex and often leaving before the rest of the team arrives hours later.

Andy Murray is still undecided. Is the King coach better off putting Jason Allison and Ziggy Palffy on the same line, or keeping his most dangerous offensive players apart? "It's too early to tell," Murray said. "Who would not want to play with Ziggy Palffy? And who would not want to play with Jason Allison? "Obviously, if you can balance out a couple of lines it makes you tougher to check. If you play everybody on one line, you hope they can dominate everybody.

Although the Kings sit atop the Pacific Division as they begin a three-game homestand tonight, their medical woes show no signs of abating. Adam Deadmarsh, who appeared to be making significant progress in shaking the post-concussion symptoms that have dogged him since last December, didn't feel well when he arrived at HealthSouth training center Wednesday and skated only briefly before leaving the ice, according to Coach Andy Murray.

I'm not sure if I have ever been this excited. The Kings have traded for Jason Allison, I know, I know, I'm as blown away by the whole thing as you are. Jason Allison in a Kings' sweater. Pinch me. Remind me to check with local hospitals in the morning to see how many parents have suddenly decided to name their newborns Jason or Allison. I might even try to convince my wife tonight to have another child.

Six games after his trade from the Boston Bruins, Jason Allison is still looking for his first goal with the Kings. But Coach Andy Murray said the all-star center is getting close. "He could have had two or three goals in each of the last few games, and about two or three assists," Murray said Monday. "He's just a little bit off right now, making those little plays at the front of the net.... "I think we see what he's capable of. It's just inches away from happening.

Not even an injured foot and leg could keep newcomer Jason Allison from making his home debut with the Kings Thursday night against Chicago at Staples Center. Allison, who suffered his injury in Tuesday's loss to the Blackhawks and did not practice on Wednesday, made a game-time decision to play. Allison, who was acquired from Boston on Oct. 24 after a five-week holdout with the Bruins, had an assist on Adam Deadmarsh's second goal in the Kings' 3-2 loss to the Blackhawks on Thursday.

The Kings have shown that they can win without production from Jason Allison, going 4-2 over the last two weeks when the slumping center has failed to score. Before defeating the New York Islanders, 3-0, on Jan. 5 at Uniondale, N.Y., they had been 0-7-1-1 when Allison hadn't scored. But that shouldn't ease his burden, Coach Andy Murray said. "I'd like to think there's pressure on him every night," Murray said. "When you have an elite player, he should feel that pressure to perform every night.

Jason Allison, sidelined for the last two weeks because of a variety of injuries, said this week that he probably wouldn't be fully sound before next season. "I don't think it's probable," said the Kings' top-line center, whose most serious injuries, to his right knee, have been compounded recently by hip and neck strains. "Maybe if I shut it down for a month and a half." Has he considered that?

Jason Allison, who has suffered knee, hip and neck injuries this season, said Thursday that the most debilitating of his impairments is a neck strain that probably will keep him sidelined at least through the end of the month. The earliest he could return to the King lineup, the high-scoring center said, probably would be March 1 against the Atlanta Thrashers.

Jason Allison, out since January because of whiplash, has been prescribed medication to fight post-traumatic migraine symptoms that might be the cause of lingering vision problems and headaches the King center has been experiencing. Since his injury, Allison has been to three eye specialists and three neurologists. There is still no timetable for his return. "Something new has been targeted," Allison said. "[Vision] has been my biggest problem.

Though he didn't question its validity, Coach Andy Murray took exception to a comment by Jason Allison this week that the injured King center might not play again this season. Allison has been sidelined since Jan. 25 because of post-concussion symptoms. "We want our players saying they're going to be back," Murray said. "Jason's not a doctor. If it was Dr. Allison, then he could make that decision. But right now it's just Jason."

The Kings could be waiting a long time for Jason Allison to return. The club's top center, sidelined since Jan. 25 because of a neck strain, is suffering post-concussion symptoms and said Tuesday that he was not sure when he might be able to play again this season, if at all. "It could be a week, or it could be the season," he said. His hip injury, still listed as the reason for his absence from the lineup, has healed.

Jason Allison and two more of the Kings' best forwards were sound again and back in the lineup. Steve Heinze scored his first goal in nearly a year. The Edmonton Oilers, meanwhile, were without two of their top three scorers, ravaged by flu and playing their second game in two nights after grinding through 60 minutes of a one-goal victory over the Mighty Ducks 24 hours earlier.

Jason Allison beat goaltender Martin Brodeur with a great move 3:34 into the third period to give the Boston Bruins a 1-1 tie with the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night at East Rutherford, N.J. Allison took a pass from Dmitri Khristich, skated around defenseman Scott Stevens at the blue line, then faked Brodeur to the ice. His backhander ricocheted off Brodeur's back, the goal post, back off the goaltender's hip and into the net for his 25th goal.

Jason Allison has one point in two games with the Kings, an assist on a goal by defenseman Mathieu Schneider in the second period of Friday night's 3-2 loss to the Panthers at Sunrise, Fla. The all-star center's transition to his new team continues after a five-week holdout and Wednesday's trade from the Boston Bruins. "I thought it was a step in the right direction, and this is what you have to expect, that he'll get better every day," Coach Andy Murray said.

If 93 points are required to reach the Stanley Cup playoffs in the Western Conference, as they were a year ago, the Kings will need 52 in the second half of the season, which starts tonight against the Edmonton Oilers. It's a tall order, but one the Kings filled last season, when they reached the midpoint with 41 points before fashioning a 24-11-4-2 finish, good for 95 points overall and a seventh-place finish in the West.

A check of the calendar shows that, according to original estimates, Jason Allison won't be back in the Kings' lineup for three to seven weeks. A check of Allison's injured right knee this afternoon, however, probably will allow him to play tonight against the Nashville Predators at Staples Center, only five weeks and two days after he suffered the injury Oct. 29 at Atlanta.
