The Kings (18-14-5) are 3-0-1 under new coach Darryl Sutter and shut out the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday at the United Center. Jonathan Quick's 32-save shutout was his League-high fifth of the season, but Jonathan Bernier is a possibility to make his first appearance since Dec. 17. With 41 points, the Kings are ninth in the Western Conference.
The Kings did not hold a morning skate after arriving late from Chicago. After tonight's game, the Kings return home for a six-game homestand that begins Saturday night against Vancouver.
