KINGS NOTEBOOK (NOV. 5)

by Staff Writer / Los Angeles Kings
After suffering a hard fought 1-0 loss vs. Anaheim the night before, the Kings returned to practice today. Here are some notes from practice.


ERSBERG TO START THURSDAY

Ater taking a tough loss in stopping 26-of-27 shots in a 1-0 loss to the Anaheim Ducks last night, Head Coach Terry Murray confirmed that Ersberg will start tomorrow vs. Florida.

`Yeah, I'm going to go back to him tomorrow,"  Murray told the Daily News. "He played very well. As I mentioned after the game, I thought his composure was good. He was under control, he was on the puck, he made some nice stops, some big stops. He'd been waiting his turn and he took advantage of it, so he deserves another opportunity right away."

QUINCEY BECOMING A WORKHORSE
Kyle Quincey leads the team with 23:07 average time-on-ice. He has played more than 20 minutes in each of his eight games with the Kings (including a high of 25:47 Oct. 20 vs. Colorado). Quincey also leads all Kings defensemen with five points (1-4=5). His two-assist night Nov. 1 vs. Calgary was his first multi-point game on his NHL career.
