KINGS (1-0-1) at JETS (1-1-0)

8 p.m. ET; TSN3, FS-W, NHL.TV


The Game

Jack Campbell will make his second straight start for the Los Angeles Kings when they visit the Winnipeg Jets at Bell MTS Place on Tuesday.

Campbell made 36 saves in a 4-2 win against the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday filling in for goalie Jonathan Quick, who is not on the Kings' four-game road trip and is day to day with a lower-body injury sustained in practice Saturday. 

Goalie Connor Hellebuyck will start for the Jets, who allowed three power-play goals in a 5-1 loss to the Dallas Stars on Sunday.

It's the home opener for Winnipeg, which was an NHL best 32-7-2 at Bell MTS Place last season.


Players to watch

Kings forward Alex Iafallo has three points (two goals, one assist) in his past two games. 

Jets forward Kyle Connor has three points (two goals, one assist) in his past two games.


They said it

"No. It doesn't matter. We've done this many times before. [Quick] has been injured a lot. We've done this many times before and we know what to do." -- Kings defenseman Drew Doughty on if the mindset changes with goalie Jonathan Quick out with an injury

"Penalties, more than discipline, right? We don't like the stick penalties where we're tripping guys. There's a big volume of that. We were eager to get on the puck, not with our feet but with our sticks. We want to clean that up a bit." -- Jets coach Paul Maurice on the penalty kill, which has allowed three goals on nine opportunities this season
