The second half of the Wednesday Night Hockey doubleheader will see the Kings host the Golden Knights in West Division action. Vegas trails first-place Colorado by four points for the division lead, while Los Angeles’ playoff hopes have grown dim. The Kings trail fourth-place St. Louis by six points for the West’s final playoff spot.
While the Kings said so long to Jeff Carter on Monday, the team extended the contract of forward Alex Iafallo. The deal is for four years with an average annual value of $4M. The Eden, New York native signed with Los Angeles as an unrestricted free agent in April 2017, following a four-year career at the University of Minnesota-Duluth where he was a first-team All-American.
On Monday night in Los Angeles, the Golden Knights overcame a 2-0 deficit to defeat the Kings for the fifth time in seven meetings this season with a 4-2 victory. Capping off Vegas’ four answered goals was forward Max Pacioretty with a power play tally in the third period. For Pacioretty, it was his team-leading 20th goal this season. More significantly, it was the 300th goal of his career. In doing so, Pacioretty became the sixth active U.S.-born player to reach the 300-goal mark, a list which includes LA’s Dustin Brown.
