The Los Angeles Kings passed one major test this week. An even bigger one arrives on Thursday night when they host the Boston Bruins.Boston owns the most points in the NHL (62) and will come in hot, having earned at least a point in its past 11 games (8-0-3).The point streak was extended with a 2-1 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday in the outdoor Winter Classic at Fenway Park in Boston.Los Angeles is coming off an impressive win of its own, beating the visiting Dallas Stars 3-2 on Tuesday night, giving the Kings 50 points at the halfway point of the season.The Stars had won four in a row coming into the game and sat atop the Central Division standings.The win continues to add to the Kings’ resume of being a legitimate playoff team this season, but coach Todd McLellan is only concerned about earning two points against the Bruins.”Our goal is to become a 52-point team,” McLellan said. “I know that’s not what you want to hear, but the team coming in here on Thursday, what are they shooting for, their 70th point? That’s the type of challenge that we have.”And the challenges won’t end there.After the Kings host the Bruins, they visit the Pacific Division-leading Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday and then come home for four games. Among the visitors will be the Edmonton Oilers, New Jersey Devils and another from the Stars.”This string of games right now, every night is a big battle,” McLellan said. “I think if we start thinking about big numbers and chunks, it’s not going to do us any good. One at a time.”The Kings blanked Dallas in the third period, a notable feat considering the Stars came into the game leading the NHL with 55 goals in the final period and the second-best goal differential (plus-25).Boston has proven to be tough to put away as well, owning the second-most third-period goals in the league (54) and the best goal-differential (plus-31).
