|LOS ANGELES: |
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.
|FLORIDA: SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) - When the lockout ended and last season started for the Florida Panthers, there was so much promise.
A banner commemorating the team's division title was unfurled on opening night, the franchise's star-in-waiting scored on his first NHL shot and everything looked bright.
That good feeling disappeared in a hurry. The Panthers went from celebrating to collapsing without warning, and wound up finishing the season having given up more goals than any other team while being tied for last in goal-scoring - and posting the worst record in the NHL.
``It wasn't pleasant,'' Panthers captain Ed Jovanovski said.
One disaster after another - injuries and scoring droughts, mostly - plagued Florida last season, and the Panthers haven't forgotten. When camp opened earlier this month, the Panthers talked of both a need to move ahead but the necessity to remember how painful it was to be out of the playoff chase so early last season.
``I think we all pretty well know that we don't want to have another disaster like last year,'' Panthers general manager Dale Tallon said. ``Guys are professional. They should be able to figure it out and if they don't figure it out, I'll figure it out for them.''
Panthers coach Kevin Dineen said his team cannot ignore the memory of last season's freefall. Not counting goals awarded in shootouts, Florida skaters scored 109 times last year, tied with Nashville for the worst total in the league.
``We had to acknowledge what happened as a group. We had to understand that there was ownership by all of us, from the GM to the coaching to the players and I think we all did that,'' Dineen said. ``I think the commitment was made to be better. There's been some hard decisions made this summer ... but we need to put a team and a style of that gives us the best chance to win.''
Changes were made, such as letting longtime Florida forward Stephen Weiss leave through free agency, and bringing Stanley Cup-winning goaltender Tim Thomas into the organization as a veteran influence. Thomas and Jacob Markstrom figure to get the bulk of the work in net early.

*Kings-Panthers Preview* ========================
By JEFF BARTL STATS Writer
Los Angeles (3-2-0) at Florida (2-3-0), 3:00 p.m. EDT
Finally playing on home ice seemed to inspire the Florida Panthers, but facing one of the league's top goaltenders likely will present another tough challenge.
Florida looks to build off a solid offensive performance as it hosts Jonathan Quick and the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday.
The Panthers (2-3-0) began their season playing four road games and were outscored 16-3 while dropping the final three contests. They kicked off a stretch of playing eight of nine at home, though, by scoring four of the game's last five goals in Friday's 6-3 win over Pittsburgh.
"It was a big night for us, a big character win against a very good team," said Kris Versteeg, who had a goal and an assist. "So we're excited about that."
Though coach Kevin Dineen would like to see more consistency as the season progresses, he was pleased with his team's performance after a tough road stretch.
"It was better (Friday)," Dineen said. "We've been riding a roller coaster and that's a bad way to do an 82-game season - good, bad, good, bad. We're looking for a little stability to it."
Tomas Fleischmann had a goal and three assists, while Brad Boyes scored twice and added his first assist of the season. Boyes has scored in three straight games.
"Right now I'm definitely feeling good," said Boyes, a 40-goal scorer in 2007-08 with St. Louis. "It's about opportunities and when you get them, capitalize on them. That's something when things go well and you're scoring the goals like I was in years past, you're getting those bounces and pucks are finding you. It's been good that it's been happening so far."
The Panthers may have a more difficult time finding the back of the net Sunday against Quick, who is coming off a 27-save effort in Friday's 2-1 shootout win over Carolina.
Quick, the leading candidate to start for Team USA in the upcoming Sochi Olympics, stopped all three shootout attempts.
"He's a top-class goalie, and he showed it," winger Dwight King said.
King scored short-handed and Jeff Carter had the shootout winner for Los Angeles (3-2-0), which has won two straight after dropping its previous two.
The Kings had a prime opportunity to win in overtime, but they failed to convert a 4-on-3 power play. They've gone 2 for 11 with the man advantage in their last three contests.
"That needs a little work," Carter said. "But we ended up with two points. It's never easy coming all the way out here (to the East Coast)."
Los Angeles' last trip to face the Panthers didn't go well, falling 3-1 on Feb. 9, 2012, to end a seven-game winning streak in the series. Quick was pulled in that contest after allowing two goals on 11 shots, but he's 3-1-0 with a 2.14 goals-against average in four career starts against Florida.
Panthers goaltender Tim Thomas is recovering from a strained groin suffered in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to Philadelphia. Jacob Markstrom has started the last two games, giving up six goals before being pulled in the third period of Thursday's 7-2 loss to Tampa Bay but bouncing back to make 36 saves Friday.
Scott Clemmensen also is on the roster and made four saves in relief of Markstrom on Thursday. It's unclear who will be in net for this contest.
