Blackhawks meet Kings in search of another jumpstart

The Chicago Blackhawks have not had much success in their past six games, but they did beat the Los Angeles Kings in that span.The Blackhawks will try to turn results around against the Kings once again on Thursday night at Los Angeles.Chicago beat the visiting Kings 2-1 in overtime on Nov. 3, ending a four-game winless streak.Chicago was shut out for the second time this season on Saturday, giving up three power-play goals in a 4-0 loss against the Winnipeg Jets to start the current three-game trip.The loss dropped the Blackhawks to 1-3-2 in their past six games, watering down their impressive 4-2-0 start to the season.The Blackhawks returned to Chicago after the loss to Winnipeg and held a long practice on Tuesday, looking to improve on their offensive zone play.”Our in-zone (play) has been good,” Blackhawks coach Luke Richardson said. “We’re moving the puck around well. It’s just (about) getting in the zone. It hasn’t been clean, and we haven’t had a chance to work on it with all the games.”The Kings are coming off a 1-0 victory against the visiting Minnesota Wild on Tuesday in a rare low-scoring game for Los Angeles this season.”For the last three weeks, we’ve talked about, can we win a game 2-1 or 1-0?” Kings coach Todd McLellan said. “We find a way to do it.”The Kings will be looking to win three games in a row for the second time this season.”As you get better as a team, you’re looking for perfection on both ends, it doesn’t exist,” McLellan said. “We still have a long way to go to really get to that point.”
