A victory by the Kings over the Phoenix Coyotes on Wednesday night at Staples Center - whether in regulation, overtime or shootout - will ensure the Kings of the third seed in the Pacific division and their fifth consecutive playoff appearance. There was a time, not too long ago, when clinching a playoff spot was a big deal for the Kings. But after winning the Stanley Cup in 2012 and advancing to the West finals last season it's a start, not the endgame. “It would be one goal that we've accomplished that we said before the season, obviously, is making the playoffs,” center Anze Kopitar said after the Kings' morning skate in El Segundo.

CALGARY, Canada -- Kings forward Jordan Nolan is facing potential supplementary discipline from the league for punching Oilers left wing Jesse Joensuu in the Kings' 4-2 win at Edmonton on Sunday night. The incident occurred late in the second period. Nolan received a double minor for roughing, and Joensuu went off for cross checking. With the Kings playing the Flames on Monday night, Nolan will have a phone hearing with the league today. It had been set for this morning but the league has had to make adjustments to its schedule because of the ongoing meetings in Boca Raton, Fla., with the general managers.

The Kings announced Monday that they have retained defenseman Alec Martinez, agreeing on a two-year contract and avoiding arbitration with the player, who turns 26 later this month. The announcement was made by Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi. Martinez played in 27 games last season, with a goal, four assists and 10 penalty minutes. He also played in seven of the team's 18 post-season games, contributing two assists. The 6-foot-1, 206-pound former 2007 fourth-round pick has appeared in 142 regular-season and 33 post-season games.

CHICAGO -- If you compare the rosters, the Kings aren't really that much bigger than the Chicago Blackhawks, their opponents in the NHL Western Conference final beginning on Saturday. But their physical style of play can make them seem larger on the ice. Meeting with reporters at a Chicago hotel before Game 1, Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi and Coach Darryl Sutter were asked if they had purposely constructed the roster with size in mind. Lombardi said they followed a model similar to the one they used in a previous incarnation, when they were both with the San Jose Sharks.

This post has been updated. See below for details. VANCOUVER, Canada -- Greetings from Vancouver, where it's chilly but sunny. The big news from the Kings' morning skate at Rogers Arena was that they planned to activate forward Jeff Carter off injured reserve before Monday night's game against the Canucks, and they will have Carter skate in the warmups with 12 other forwards. If all goes well, Carter -- who has been out of the lineup because of a foot injury -- would play for the first time since Oct. 30. Carter had five goals and nine points in 14 games before he was injured.

CHICAGO -- Not only did Mike Richards take line rushes on Saturday morning, Kings Coach Darryl Sutter said that it was "possible" that the center could play Saturday night in Game 5 at United Center. Sutter put his chances at 50-50. The previous day he had said that it was "doubtful" Richards would play. Richards, who has missed the last three games of this series because of a concussion, declined comment after the skate. He centered Kyle Clifford and Jordan Nolan in the morning line rushes.

Twitter folk hero and enforcer Paul Bissonnette of the Phoenix Coyotes will be suspended for 10 games for his actions in the Coyotes-Kings preseason game Sunday night in Glendale, Ariz. He came off the team's bench to fight the Kings' Jordan Nolan in the first period. That earned him a game misconduct and the 10-game suspension is an automatic sanction. The league reviewed the video Monday and also closely examined Nolan's open-ice hit on Coyotes defenseman Rusty Klesla. That hit is what brought Bissonnette off the bench to go after Nolan.

It appears as though the Kings got something of a bargain with goalie Jonathan Quick's contract last summer. Quick, the playoff MVP in the Kings' run to the Stanley Cup in 2012, signed a 10-year extension worth $58 million, meaning his cap hit will be $5.8 million for the 2013-14 season. On Wednesday, the Stanley Cup finalist Boston Bruins announced that they had signed their free-agent goalie Tuukka Rask to an eight-year contract worth $56 million. Rask recorded three shutouts in the Bruins' playoff run and 19 wins in 36 games during the regular season.

One particular statistic might as well be printed in capital letters and practically leaps off the page. It resonates even more in a tight, stretch-run situation in which points and wins are carefully hoarded. Game-winning goals. Kings defenseman Alec Martinez has scored five times this season but two have been game-winners. BOX SCORE: Kings 3, Hurricanes 1 His power-play goal from the slot at 8:15 of the third period put the Kings in front for good and they added an empty-netter from Justin Williams to defeat the Carolina Hurricanes, 3-1, on Saturday afternoon.

ST. LOUIS -- On a night when the Kings and St. Louis Blues between them showcased more than a dozen players who were chosen to participate in the Sochi Olympics hockey tournament, a player who was invited to the U.S. Olympic orientation camp but didn't make the final roster was the standout. Forward Trevor Lewis, who's usually energetic but is rarely rewarded on the scoresheet, scored twice early in the third period as the Kings defeated the St. Louis Blues, 4-1, on Thursday at Scottrade Center.

The Martin Jones Era has been so blissfully straightforward. Six starts. Six wins. Three shutouts.

MONTREAL - Still glistening with moisture, the game puck from Martin Jones' second consecutive shutout sat behind him in the Kings' locker room at the Bell Center on Tuesday. Someone had grabbed it as a souvenir after the team's 6-0 rout, a gesture that created a pleasant problem for the young goaltender. "I've got a stockpile of pucks now," Jones said. "I've got to find something to do with them. " At this rate, Jones might consider buying an extra-large trophy case.

MONTREAL - The Kings exorcised decades' worth of demons Tuesday with a 6-0 victory over the Canadiens at the Bell Center, turning what was supposed to be a defensive battle between two of the NHL's top defensive teams into their first shutout of the Canadiens in franchise history and first win here in almost 14 years. Goaltender Martin Jones stopped 31 shots to improve to 3-0, again showing his poise by repelling seven shots during an early Montreal power play. Winger Tyler Toffoli - who was 7 years old when the Kings previously left Montreal with a triumph, on Dec. 11, 1999 - and center Anze Kopitar each contributed a goal and an assist as the Kings picked apart the Canadiens' defense with stunning ease.

Left wing Kyle Clifford was missing from the Kings' morning skate in advance of their potential series-clincher against the St. Louis Blues Friday night at Staples Center. His place on the fourth line was taken by Jordan Nolan, creating a trio of Nolan, Colin Fraser and Tyler Toffoli. Teams are usually vague about regular-season injuries and even more close-mouthed during the playoffs, so Kings Coach Darryl Sutter offered no enlightenment about Clifford's absence. “He was out there.

The Buffalo Sabres shook up their front office and looked to their past to improve their prospects for the future. Team owner Terry Pegula fired Darcy Regier, who had been the Sabres' general manager since 1997, and Coach Ron Rolston and hired Pat LaFontaine, a Hockey Hall of Fame forward and former Sabre, to become  director of hockey operations. LaFontaine's surprise coaching choice was Ted Nolan, who had coached the Sabres for two seasons but left the organization in 1997 following a high-profile feud with goaltender Dominik Hasek.

SAN JOSE - Mike Richards enjoys having his father, Norm, come along on the Kings' annual fathers' trip - and not only because he usually plays well when his dad is around. With his dad, 16 other players' fathers and Jordan Nolan's brother, Brandon, in the house, Richards brought the Kings even late in the third period of their eventual 3-2 overtime victory Monday at Vancouver. Richards considered it a small repayment for the sacrifices his father and his mother, Irene, had made to help him realize his dreams.
