Peters, 27, played in 21 games with Carolina last season and had a .919 save percentage with a 7-9-4 record. He was a third-string goalie for the ‘Canes as he backed up both Anton Khudobin and Cam Ward.
This opportunity with Washington will be his first real chance to hold down a No. 2 job in the NHL. With Philipp Grubauer slated to play full-time in the AHL next season, Peters should get a fair shake.
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
Per @EliasSports: @LAKings had 9 different skaters score in a game for 5th time in franchise history. Last: Jan. 21, 1987 vs. PIT (10-5 W).
Some hockey players resist the urge to wear a visor, at least if they’re given that choice.
Perhaps a few will say “Hey, Nathan Beaulieu will just punch it off anyway.”
Maybe not, but Beaulieu provided a rather unique moment in his fight with Cedric Paquette during the Montreal Canadiens – Tampa Bay Lightning game. You can watch that bout in the video above, and see a cut on the Lightning pest’s face from that blow.
