Wild set for meeting with slumping Kings

Los Angeles (25-24-9) at Minnesota (30-24-4) 8:00 p.m. EST

ST. PAUL, Minnesota (Ticker) -- After shutting down two of the

top offenses in the Western Conference, the Minnesota Wild

should have little trouble against their next opponent.

The Wild go for their third straight win on Tuesday when they

host the lowly Los Angeles Kings.

Following a decisive three-goal victory over the defending

Stanley Cup champion Detroit Red Wings on Saturday, Minnesota

edged the Chicago Blackhawks, 2-1, on Sunday.

The Red Wings are tops in the NHL with 222 goals while the

Blackhawks rank third in the West with 192 tallies.

The Kings, meanwhile, have notched just 152 goals this season,

sitting ahead of only the Wild and the Nashville Predators in

the conference.

Los Angeles has recorded more than three goals only once in its

last six games, logging a 1-3-2 record over that span.

The Kings endured their second straight loss on Saturday,

dropping a 6-3 decision to the Phoenix Coyotes.

Alexander Frolov scored his 25th goal of the season in the first

period and Dustin Brown notched his 23rd in the second for Los

Angeles, which has allowed 20 goals over its last four games.
