Quick, Kings look to snap two-game skid against Thrashers

Atlanta (20-32-5) at Los Angeles (24-22-8), 10:30 p.m. EST

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Rookie goaltender Jonathan Quick has

been stellar for the Los Angeles Kings. If he intends to end

their mild skid, he will have to stymie a suddenly dangerous

offensive club.

Quick likely will start in goal for the 11th straight game

Monday when the Kings host the red-hot Atlanta Thrashers.

The 23-year-old Quick has surrendered two goals in each of Los

Angeles' last two games - both losses - but he has not received

much offensive help. The Kings have scored over three goals

just once in their last seven games.

Los Angeles' current swoon follows a four-game winning streak

that Quick sparked by notching his third career shutout in a 1-0

victory over the Ottawa Senators on February 3.

Atlanta, which has dropped seven of 10, is coming off its best

offensive performance of the season in an 8-4 triumph over the

Anaheim Ducks on Sunday.

Captain Ilya Kovalchuk recorded his 11th career hat trick and

added an assist as the Thrashers scored four times in the second


Bryan Little and Colin Stuart both scored and set up a goal

apiece and Rich Peverley, Colby Armstrong and defenseman Niclas

Havelid also tallied for Atlanta, which has scored six or more

goals four times this season.
