The Los Angeles Kings were hoping their seven-game homestand would help steer their season in the right direction Jonny Brodzinski Jersey Womens , but they’ll still be trying to find their way when they host the Calgary Flames on Saturday night at Staples Center.The Kings ended a six-game losing streak with a 4-3 win over the New York Islanders in the first game of the homestand on Oct. 28 but then fired coach John Stevens a week later and replaced him with Willie Desjardins.Los Angeles (5-9-1) seemed to take their game to another level in Desjardins’ debut on Tuesday, out-hustling the Anaheim Ducks in a 4-1 victory, but couldn’t build off that momentum on Thursday against the Minnesota Wild and lost 3-1, dropping their record to 3-2-0 on the homestand.Article continues below ...The Kings also had their home sellout streak end at 297 games.“At this point in the year, we’ve got to get points to start climbing back into this thing,” Kings defenseman Alec Martinez told reporters after the loss to the Wild. “Go back to the drawing board.”The Flames (9-6-1) should feel fresh after playing just once since last Saturday, a 3-2 loss at the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday, ending a four-game winning streak.Many eyes will be on the matchup between Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk and Kings defenseman Drew Doughty.Tkachuk elbowed Doughty in the face during a March 2017 game, briefly knocking Doughty out of the game and prompting Doughty to call the then 19-year-old Tkachuk a “pretty dirty player.”Tkachuk was suspended by the NHL for two games, but their issues continued last season.Tkachuk has become an even more valuable offensive player for the Flames this season, making his presence in the lineup more vital to Calgary’s success.After totaling 24 goals and 25 assists in 68 games last season, Tkachuk has seven goals and 12 assists in 16 games so far this season.Calgary general manager Brad Treliving told the Calgary Sun that a skill that’s gone unappreciated is Tkachuk’s intelligence.“His hockey IQ is elite. He thinks it so well,” Treviling said. “Those players that think it so well, when they get around other players that think it so well Womens Tyler Toffoli Jersey , you can produce.“It’s a hard league to score in, we know that, but he’s smart, he’s courageous, he goes to where you need to score goals and he has skill. So he’s certainly capable of putting up numbers.”The Kings conclude their homestand Tuesday against the Toronto Maple Leafs. They entered Friday 10 points behind the Vancouver Canucks for first place in the Pacific Division but just six points out of the final playoff spot.The schedule is still early, but Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away. Teams in playoff spots at Thanksgiving often make the postseason in April.“We’re concerned with where we’re at, but I think if you look at the standings we’re not that far off,” Toffoli said. “Every game matters for us right now, so we’ve got to find a way to win games here and get a little streak going.” Jana Chytilova/Freestyle Photo/Getty ImagesThe NHL trade deadline came and went on Monday afternoon, but not before a flurry of deals were completed at the wire.Mark Stone's landing with the Las Vegas Golden Knights and Wayne Simmonds' move to the Nashville Predators were the highlight deals of the day, while the Winnipeg Jets made a whopping six trades.But we start with Stone, the biggest name on the move. Darren Dreger of TSN shared the details:Darren Dreger DarrenDregerBrannstrom, Lindbergh and Dallas Stars 2nd round pick in 2020 to Ottawa for Mark Stone.Tough to lose a player like Stone, but that鈥檚 a home run for Pierre Dorion and the Sens.Not long after http://www.officialwild.com/authentic-adidas-devan-dubnyk-jersey , Stone agreed to an eight-year extension with the Golden Knights that will pay him an average of $9.5 million per year, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie, though it can't officially be signed until March 1.While the Senators got back decent value for Stone, it still seems more than feasible that the organization could have kept him. But his departure indicates a recent pattern of top players leaving the franchise:Faizal Khamisa SNFaizalKhamisaForget just losing your top-3 forwards this season, the Ottawa Senators top 6 scorers from last season are now all gone. C00eArkiX8Bruce Arthur bruce_arthurDing ding ding jmtWzE6yigStone, 26, is having an excellent year, with 28 goals (a career high) and 34 assists in 59 games. His 62 points are nearly a career high as well, and he will surely smash past his previous high of 64, which was set in the 2014-15 season.His addition is huge for a Vegas team looking to replicate its shocking run to the Stanley Cup Final a season ago. The team is in third place in the Pacific Division with 69 points.As for Simmonds, the bruising forward was sent to Nashville in exchange forRyan Hartman and a 2020 conditional fourth-round pick that will become a third-rounder if the Predators win a playoff round, per Frank Seravalli of TSN.Simmonds will add toughness to Nashville, and the deal made sense for both sides:Bucci Mane BuccigrossHartman will be a popular pest in Philly. Simmonds has a tougher time getting around the rink now, the game is so fast Eric Staal Jersey , but he has tons of grit and toughness. He鈥檒l play on power play and down in the lineup. I thought Nashville and Boston made most sense.

The types of prospects PHI might have gotten back for Simmonds instead wouldnt really have more value than him.And then there were the Jets, who shook things up with six鈥攃ount them Womens Jared Spurgeon Jersey , six鈥攖rades at the deadline.They were as follows:Kristen Shilton kristen_shilton#Leafs trade Par Lindholm to the Winnipeg Jets for Nic PetanDarren Dreger DarrenDregerKiselevich to Wpg. 7th round pick back to Fla.Pierre LeBrun PierreVLeBrunJets get D-man Nathan Beaulieufrom Buffalo for a 6th RD pickPierre LeBrun PierreVLeBrunAs per GMillerTSN, Jets re-acquire Matt Hendricks from Minnesota for a 7th RD pickNew York Rangers NYRangersOFFICIAL: #NYR have acquired a first-round pick in the 2019 NHL Draft, forward Brendan Lemieux, and a conditional fourth-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft from the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for Kevin Hayes.Darren Dreger DarrenDregerThe Jets and Columbus Blue Jackets complete a minor league trade.

"I'm a forward who likes to pass first and make the guys around me a little better."It's hard not to see this deal as a solid one for Winnipeg:Larry Brooks NYP_BrooksieAs previously suggested by friends to the north, appears as if Hayes is en route to Winnipeg for probably not enough to justify trading teams second-best (to Zibanejad) player last two years rather than locking him up earlier.A few other notable deals on the day, per TSN, saw bluelinerMichael Del Zotto head to the St. Louis Blues, theNashville Predators send forward Kevin Fiala to the Minnesota Wild for Mikael Granlund,Adam McQuaidjoin to the Columbus Blue Jackets for fourth- and seventh-round picks,Derick Brassard get traded yet again鈥攖his time to the Colorado Avalanche鈥攁nd the Blue Jackets landgoaltender Keith Kinkaid.
