Devils start season-long road trip with Kings

New Jersey (23-14-3) at Los Angeles (17-17-6), 10:30 pm EST

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) — Trying to keep pace in the competitive
Atlantic Division, the New Jersey Devils will need to continue
their strong play on the road.

The Devils will kick off a season-long, six-game road swing
Saturday, visiting the Los Angeles Kings.

New Jersey, which is hoping to avoid a third straight loss, has
played well away from the Prudential Center. The Devils have a
10-6-2 mark on the road this season.

The offense continued to sputter as New Jersey was blanked for
the third time in nine game in Thursday’s 4-0 setback to the
Atlanta Thrashers.

the Atlantic – four points behind the division-leading
Philadelphia Flyers with a game in hand.

The Kings are continuing a four-game homestand. Alexander
Frolov netted the game-winner and set up another goal as Los
Angeles opened the run with a 4-3 victory over the rival Anaheim

Captain Dustin Brown and Anze Kopitar also had a goal and assist
for the Kings, who will host the Tampa Bay Lightning and the
Detroit Red Wings on Monday and Thursday, respectively.
