The revolving door at left wing on the Kings' top line took two more turns Tuesday. The first turn occurred when Marco Sturm practiced with Anze Kopitar and Wayne Simmonds and was pronounced ready to return Wednesday from a 13-game absence caused by tendinitis. It continued whirling when Coach Terry Murray said that Scott Parse, the Kings' initial choice to fill that spot before requiring hip surgery in November, had a setback and was advised to stop working out. After practice Tuesday Sturm said the knee is stronger than when he made his Kings debut in December.

Finally, the Kings have become the team they were designed to be: hard-hitting but not reckless, skillful but capable of mucking and grinding when need be — and a division leader with the potential for a long playoff run. Goaltender Jonathan Quick came up big for them Thursday in a 1-0 shootout victory over the league-leading St. Louis Blues, but he has done that all season. What's different now is he gets support every game, maybe not in the form of goals Thursday at Staples Center but in blocked shots and solid defensive play and clutch performances throughout the lineup.

The Kings beat the clock once this season, scoring the winner against Columbus last Wednesday at Staples Center despite a one-second timing pause late in the third period (more on that later). Now, can they beat the clock before the Feb. 27 trading deadline and make a deal to boost their anemic offense? The Kings' goals-per-game average shrank to 2.09 after they started a six-game trip with a 1-0 loss at St. Louis and 2-1 loss at Carolina. Only the Dustin Brown - Anze Kopitar - Justin Williams line has been reliable.

The Kings now have to look toward next season, when change is sure to come. They have six players who are now unrestricted free agents and three more who are restricted. Some of these players may not be back. Here are the names, their 2009-10 salary, key stats and comments from The Times hockey Hall of Fame columnist Helene Elliott. Unrestricted Alexander Frolov, $4 million; 19 goals, 51 points. The talk is he wants a new deal for $5 million per season. Have fun in Russia in the Kontinental Hockey League, Fro. Fredrik Modin, $3.5 million; 3 goals, 5 points in 20 games after trade from Columbus.

The Kings made a roster move Friday, beating the league-mandated freeze on transactions by assigning rookie forward Scott Parse to Manchester (N.H.) of the American Hockey League. Although not a blockbuster move, it made a huge statement about how Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi sees his team. In his first three seasons as GM, Lombardi made major moves at the NHL trading deadline. Yes, there is still time to do that -- Friday's noon PST roster freeze expires when the Olympics ends, after which teams will have until noon PST March 3 to make a trade -- but the best deal for the Kings this year may prove to be no deal at all. "I'm done trading veterans for picks," Lombardi said.

With points in their last six games, the Kings are on their hottest streak in more than two months. Offensively, however, they are mired in a cold spell, averaging fewer than two goals a game since mid-January. But help may be on the way. Left wing Marco Sturm is ready to come off the injured reserve list, perhaps in time for Thursday's game in Pittsburgh. "It's always hard because everybody that's in the lineup is contributing and playing pretty well right now," Coach Terry Murray said after Tuesday morning's practice in El Segundo.

Kings defenseman Drew Doughty , who suffered a concussion Oct. 20, was cleared by team medical personnel Tuesday night to resume all hockey activities, a club spokesman said. The Kings are expected to activate him off injured reserve Wednesday and have him in uniform Thursday when they face the Tampa Bay Lightning at Staples Center. Doughty practiced Tuesday morning in El Segundo but wore the yellow jersey that signifies non-contact status. He said he was eager to return but cautious.

Their special teams struggle mightily against the Wild, and the team has given up eight power-play goals in its four straight losses. The Kings have insisted they don't want to back into the playoffs. A few more results like their 3-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild on Monday and they could be backing out of the playoffs. It would take a lot for the Kings to drop out of the top eight in the West. After 75 games, they are seventh with 90 points, a point ahead of Colorado. Ninth-place Calgary has 85 points and has played 76 games.

From San Jose The Kings didn't merely lose to the San Jose Sharks on Monday and end their six-game winning streak. "They beat us here tonight," Coach Terry Murray said, meaning his team was thrashed in too many areas for this defeat to be palatable in any way. The poise the Kings (12-4-0) had showed in winning eight in their previous nine games, the impeccable penalty killing, their ability to clear rebounds and minimize the quality of opponents' shots -- all that was splintered by the end of a high-tempo game before a jubilant crowd at HP Pavilion.

Terry Murray's shakeup of his top three lines didn't produce a flood of goals, but the Kings scored often enough Monday — and got strong enough goaltending from Jonathan Quick — to defeat the San Jose Sharks and pass them in the Pacific Division standings. Fourth-line winger Ethan Moreau scored in the first period, Mike Richards scored his team-leading 11th goal in the second period and Quick, playing his 200th game, made 33 saves to lead the Kings to a 2-0 victory at Staples Center.

VS. VANCOUVER When: 7:30 p.m. Where: Staples Center On the air: TV: FS West. Radio: 1150 Records: Kings 7-5-3. Canucks 7-7-1. Update: The often-mysterious NHL ailment — the lower-body injury — has landed Kings forward Scott Parse on the injured-reserve list. He was injured in the first period of Tuesday's 4-3 victory over Nashville, playing three shifts for a total of 1 minute 44 seconds. So look for forward Colin Fraser to be officially activated, which would result in his Kings debut.

It's a measure of progress that the Kings no longer have to scramble to assemble two formidable scoring lines, thanks to the acquisitions of veterans Mike Richards and Simon Gagne . But Coach Terry Murray will take a critical look at the third line and will give the fourth line a new appearance Sunday in an exhibition game against the Ducks at Staples Center. Gagne, Richards and right wing Dustin Brown are scheduled to play together, as are Dustin Penner , Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams . On the third line, Jarret Stoll will center for Kyle Clifford and Scott Parse , and skillful Andrei Loktionov will be between scrappy Brad Richardson and enforcer Kevin Westgarth on the fourth line.

Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi said Tuesday he won't trade the rights to restricted free-agent defenseman Drew Doughty even though they've been unable to agree on a new contract. "There's no way," Lombardi said when asked about trading Doughty to break the stalemate. The Kings have offered Doughty up to nine years at an average annual value of $6.8 million but he indicated he doesn't want to sign for that long and give up several years of unrestricted free agency.

Facing a second elimination game in a row, Kings Coach Terry Murray said he would use the same lineup Monday at Staples Center as he used in his team's 3-1 victory Saturday at San Jose. That means winger Scott Parse , whose appearance Saturday was his first since a hip injury forced him out of the lineup Nov. 15, stays on the left with Michal Handzus and Justin Williams . The other combinations were Dustin Penner - Jarret Stoll - Kevin Westgarth , Ryan Smyth - Trevor Lewis - Dustin Brown , and Kyle Clifford - Brad Richardson - Wayne Simmonds . Parse played 10 minutes 17 seconds Saturday and had no shots and one attempt blocked.

The morning after the Kings allowed six goals for the second consecutive game and stumbled within one loss of playoff elimination, Terry Murray decided his best chance to succeed against the San Jose Sharks will be to deploy skillful but unproven winger Scott Parse, who hasn't played since Nov. 15. The sad note is that if adding Parse means subtracting Dustin Penner, Murray might have made the best choice available to him as long as General Manager...
