Practice Updates - Islanders at Kings 12\/6\/13
The Islanders are in Los Angeles for the first time since Nov. 13, 2010, a span of 1,120 days. Long Island fans will have to stay up late to catch the game, as the time difference pushes puck drop back to 10:30 p.m. eastern time. The Islanders were defeated at home against LA three and a half weeks ago and look to return the favor in front of the star-studded crowd at Staples Center.



















Ahead of tomorrow’s game, the Islanders practiced at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo – just four miles from the Pacific Ocean. Here are some news, notes and quotes from Friday’s practice.

Streaking: Andrew MacDonald (1g/2a) and Kyle Okposo (2g/2a) are riding three-game point streaks. MacDonald has two goals in his last two games against Western conference teams and half of his 16 career goals have come against the West.



















Faceoffs: The Islanders increased focus on faceoffs has yielded results, as the team has won the battle in the face-off circle for three straight games. They put their streak to the test against the league’s top face-off team, the Kings, Saturday night.

Special Teams: The Islanders went 1-for-3 with the man advantage against St. Louis, improving to 16.5 on the season. After playing two of the league’s best power-play units, the Islanders get some relief, as the Kings power play ranks 22nd in the league.



















The Islanders coaching staff spent a lot of extra time on-ice with the penalty kill units before conducting PK drills. After a long chalk talk, the coaches moved the puck around the perimeter of the offensive zone and reinforced PK positioning.



















Islanders forwards went “shirts vs. skins,” a.k.a. penalty kill vs. power play, to finish out the special-teams-heavy practice at full pace.

All-Time: The Islanders are 43-42-13 all time against the Kings.
