LOS ANGELES (AP) - After the most successful two-year stretch in franchise history, the Los Angeles Kings just want to keep it going.
That's because the Kings historically aren't used to good times. The 2012 Stanley Cup champions returned to the Western Conference finals last summer, winning six total playoff rounds - twice as many as this long-struggling team had ever managed in any two-year stretch.
To stay on top, Los Angeles plans to rely on the same unflashy, workmanlike style that allowed coach Darryl Sutter's club to raise the Cup for the first time.
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Jets coach Claude Noel speaks in simple, straight-forward terms a lot of the time. He is one of these what-you-see-is-what-you-get leaders.
So, it should come as no surprise to see his illustration for Winnipeg this season, especially when his Jets just missed the playoffs last season.
``I clearly see that we have to make the playoffs,'' he said in June. ``But it's not easy to make the playoffs.''
Last season, the Jets finished ninth in the East, four points behind the No. 8 New York Islanders. Winnipeg captured hearts in Canada and was in contention into the final week of the season. In the end, the Jets seemed to have everything, in fact, except a berth.
So, like some other teams in Canada - Calgary and Edmonton last year - the Jets will try, try again to find that elusive spot this season. It won't be easy, as Noel points out. The Jets are now in the Western Conference, as part of NHL realignment, and are in a division with Stanley Cup-champion Chicago, Minnesota and St. Louis.
Winnipeg opens vs. Edmonton on Oct. 1.

*Kings-Jets Preview* ====================
By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer
Los Angeles (0-0-0) at Winnipeg (1-0-0), 8:00 p.m. EDT
In their second game as a Western Conference team, the Winnipeg Jets will seek to match their best start in franchise history.
The Los Angeles Kings, meanwhile, will try to secure their best in 10 seasons after Friday night's visit to Winnipeg by also building on a comeback victory in its opener.
The Jets (1-0-0) trailed by two goals midway through the second period Tuesday in Edmonton before Michael Frolik found the net twice and Jacob Trouba scored in his first NHL game. Frolik, part of a Stanley Cup-winning team in Chicago last season, netted the tiebreaking goal in the 5-4 win with 5:02 remaining.
"It was a really up-and-down game, but we battled hard, especially in the end," he said. "It was a good finish for us, and we can be happy with the way we turned the game around.
"I don't think that we can afford to give up that many goals. The defense could be a little tighter."
Winnipeg will try for a better defensive effort while improving to 2-0-0 for the first time since 2009-10, when the franchise was in its penultimate season as the Atlanta Thrashers. The Thrashers also won their first two games in 2003-04.
"Players want to get off to a good start," coach Claude Noel said. "We're happy (the season opener) is behind us. Our task is to continue to get better."
The Kings will try to spoil Winnipeg's home opener while winning its first two games for the first time since a 3-0-0 start in 2002-03.
Los Angeles (1-0-0) came back from a pair of early one-goal deficits Thursday for a 3-2 shootout victory in Minnesota. Jeff Carter scored the tying goal with 6:46 remaining in regulation and the shootout winner.
Jonathan Quick kept the Wild scoreless over the final 42:48 of regulation and the five-minute overtime, then foiled Minnesota's two shootout attempts.
"He was huge," center Anze Kopitar said. "Over the course of the past three or four years we've gotten pretty familiar with his play. He's always been back there holding strong for us, and tonight was no different.
"He held us in there and we found a way to score a goal at the end of the game, and finished it off in the shootout."
The Kings are facing the Jets for the first time since a 1-0 overtime loss in Winnipeg on Dec. 29, 2011. Los Angeles is 1-2-2 in its last five matchups with that franchise after going 7-0-2 in its first nine.
After playing the Jets just once since their move from Atlanta, the Kings will face them three times this season. The next meeting, though, isn't until March 6 in Winnipeg.
Frolik scored all three of his goals last season against Los Angeles and had two of his seven assists. He tallied just one assist in Chicago's five-game victory over the Kings in the conference championship series.
