At the Rink: Wild at Kings

The Minnesota Wild and Los Angeles Kings did not hold a morning skate in advance of their 3 p.m. ET game Sunday at Staples Center.

After beginning the season with consecutive shutouts of the Colorado Avalanche, the Wild lost 2-1 on Friday to the Anaheim Ducks. Goalie Darcy Kuemper made 24 saves and saw his franchise-record shutout streak end at 163:46. Kuemper, though, will sit Sunday in favor of veteran Niklas Backstrom, who makes his first start since Jan. 11 and first appearance since Jan. 30 after having abdominal and hip surgeries last season.

Wild coach Mike Yeo said to expect changes on the power play following the loss to Anaheim on Friday. Minnesota is 0-for-11 with the man advantage and one of four teams without a power-play goal. Zach Parise, Mikko Koivu, Thomas Vanek, Jason Pominville and Ryan Suter made up the first unit at practice Saturday. Nino Niederreiter, Mikael Granlund, Charlie Coyle, Jared Spurgeon and Jonas Brodin were on the second unit.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.

— Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl on finishing the 2014-15 season in juniors after playing 37 games with Edmonton to begin the season
