@NHLRussell
Vladislav Gavrikov and the Kings have agreed to a two-year contract with an AAV of $5,875,000.

High cap hit but the shorter term is easier to swallow. Good work by Rob Blake.

Kevin Fiala said he was dealing with “something in the knee” during the playoffs and wasn’t 100%.

Same injury he sustained in Colorado.

Looks like Kevin Fiala is taking the warm-up for Game 4.

@icemancometh
Kevin Fiala appears to be moving toward a game-time decision for Game 4. Todd McLellan: "I got to see what the training staff says here after the morning skate. But he's getting closer to playing." Blake Lizotte skated apart from the team but he won't play, per McLellan.

Kevin Fiala is on the ice for the Kings' optional practice wearing a non-contact red jersey. Darting around pretty well. Promising optics as the series continues.

Over the last two regular seasons, Kempe's goals/60 was 5v5 is 1.1, tied with Keller, and ahead of Meier (1.07), Guentzel (1.05), and Stamkos (1.04). At all strengths, he had a higher goals/60 than Nathan MacKinnon. Currently has 3 goals in 3 playoff games, ranking 4th in iCF/60

Anze Kopitar collected his first career four-point playoff game (1-3=4), becoming the 14th different skater in franchise history to record a four-point game in the postseason and the first to do so since Jeff Carter (3-1=4 in Game 2 of 2014 R3 at CHI).

Full-contact jersey for number 2.

@NHLRussell
Anze Kopitar is the first player in league history to play a full 82 game season while averaging 20+ minutes a game (20:18) and receive four or less penalty minutes.

(NHL began tracking TOI during the 1997-98 season)

Adrian Kempe on 40 Goals:

"I probably didn’t think about it before the season, but throughout the year I just tried to stay with my game & not focus too much on goals. I’m playing with some really good players who were looking for me all night, I’m happy I’m with those guys."

— NHL Game Day Stats (@GameDayStatsNHL) Apr 14, 2023

@NHLRussell
With that goal, Anze Kopitar will lead the Kings in scoring for the fifth straight season and 15th time in the last 16 years.

Kopitar and Gordie Howe (17) are the only players to have led a franchise in scoring for at least 15 seasons.

Kings keep pace with equally victorious Edmonton and Vegas tonight as they get a 3-1 victory over Kraken. Timely goals back Pheonx Copley's strong 25-save effort. Road trip ends tomorrow in Vancouver. Tricky ahead of Tuesday's rematch vs. Oilers.

No Jordan Spence this morning either, loaned to ONT this afternoon.

Kings had 8 defensemen, Reign play 3 times while LAK is on the road. Makes sense to get a young player game action. https://t.co/1OPKcR7BbR
