The Kings are virtually a one-line team, and that becomes even more important with Anze Kopitar hurt, a Bruins defenceman rising up, an Islanders checker who can score and a lot more to wrap up the weekend in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking. Ryan Kelly Jersey . HEROES That 70s Line – The Kings’ trio continued their torrid start with a big game against Columbus Sunday. C Jeff Carter and RW Tyler Toffoli both tallied a goal and three assists, while LW Tanner Pearson scored a pair of goals, in the Kings’ 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets. All had strong possession stats, but Pearson was best of the three (18 shot attempts for, 4 against, 81.8%). The line has scored 16 of the Kings’ 21 goals this season. See how they compare with the top three goal-scorers on other teams, none of which comprises a regular line like those in Los Angeles. As a percentage of total team goals (minimum a dozen goals), there isnt a threesome close to Pearson, Carter and Toffoli. TOP-HEAVY TRIO TEAM GOALS TEAM GOALS %/TOTAL Pearson-Carter-Toffoli Los Angeles 16 21 76.2% Nash-Brassard-Kreider N.Y. Rangers 13 21 61.9% Perry-Beleskey-Getzlaf Anaheim 17 29 58.6% Benn-Seguin-Daley Dallas 14 28 50.0% Dougie Hamilton – In Boston’s first game without Zdeno Chara, Hamilton stepped up with a goal and an two assists, while generating 10 shot attempts (4 SOG) in a 4-1 win at Toronto. Frans Nielsen – The Islanders’ checking centre notched a hat trick, with six shots on goal, on a night in which he was matched most often against Dallas’ formidable top line of Jamie Benn, Jason Spezza and Tyler Seguin. ZEROES San Jose Sharks – Even though they had an impressive win in Anaheim Sunday, losing 2-1 on home ice, against Buffalo (!) Saturday can’t be ignored. While LW Patrick Marleau had a top-notch possession game (28 shot attempts for, 7 against, 80.0%), individually he generated one shot attempt (which missed the net) in 20:00 of ice time. Columbus D – The Blue Jackets defence pairing of Fedor Tyutin (4 shot attempts for, 29 against, 12.1%) and David Savard (4 for, 21 against, 16.0%) got dominated, possession-wise, against Los Angeles Sunday. Sean Couturier – The Philadelphia tough assignment centre was stuck in the defensive zone (1 shot attempt for, 15 against, 6.3%) vs. Detroit, getting controlled by the Henrik Zetterberg line (with Justin Abdelkader and either Gustav Nyquist or Pavel Datsyuk). SHORT SHIFTS Lightning RW Nikita Kucherov recorded three assists against Winnipeg Friday and added a goal against Minnesota Saturday…Stars RW Ales Hemsky recorded eight shots on goal and controlled possession (20 shot attempts for, 5 against, 80.0%) Friday at New Jersey…Avalanche D Tyson Barrie had three assists against Vancouver…Avalanche C Matt Duchene added a goal and two assists…Ducks D Sami Vatanen had another goal and an assist against Columbus Friday. All seven of Vatanen’s points have come on the power play…Lightning LW Ondrej Palat had a killer possession game (17 shot attempts for, 1 against, 94.7%) at Winnipeg… Oilers RW Jordan Eberle had two goals and an assist against Carolina Friday… Avalanche RW Jarome Iginla scored two goals and an assist against Vancouver Friday. Senators D Erik Karlsson generated a dozen shot attempts (6 SOG) against New Jersey… Devils D Damon Severson scored a goal and an assist, playing 27:31 at Ottawa…In Detroit’s loss to Philadelphia Saturday, the Red Wings’ line of Andrej Nestrasil (17 shot attempts for, 1 against, 94.1%), Tomas Jurco (19 for, 2 against, 90.5%) and Riley Sheahan (22 for, 3 against, 88.0%) dominated territorial play…Flyers LW Michael Raffl had two goals and an assist against Detroit Saturday…Wild LW Jason Zucker scored a pair of goals against Tampa Bay Saturday. Zucker now has four goals in six games while skating on Minnesota’s fourth line…Penguins C Sidney Crosby picked up a goal and two assists in 3-0 win over Nashville Saturday. Jets D Jacob Trouba had a dominant territorial game (33 shot attempts for, 8 against, 80.5%) against Colorado Sunday, generating 10 shot attempts on his own (3 SOG)…Kings C Mike Richards had a good possession game against Columbus (16 for, 3 against, 84.2%)…Sharks RW Tommy Wingels scored a goal, had a fight, generated a dozen shot attempts (10 SOG) leading to strong possession stats (17 shot attempts for, 9 against, 65.4%) vs. Anaheim Sunday…Avalanche LW Alex Tanguay was buried in his own zone (6 shot attempts for, 24 against, 20.0%) against Winnipeg Sunday, most frequently hemmed in by the Jets line of Bryan Little, Andrew Ladd and Michael Frolik. LINEUP NEED TO KNOW Kings C Anze Kopitar left Sunday’s game against Columbus with an upper body injury. In the aftermath of Kopitar’s injury, Jarret Stoll moved up to centre Dustin Brown and Dwight King. With Ryan Callahan and Alex Killorn hurting, Cedric Paquette was called up and inserted into the Tampa Bay lineup, but then RW Brett Connolly left Friday’s game against Winnipeg with a lower-body injury and is considered week to week, leaving Tampa Bay rather thin up front. Call-up Jonathan Marchessault played 12:33 against Minnesota Saturday. Blue Jackets LW Nick Foligno was taken off the ice on a stretcher in Los Angeles Sunday. Foligno collided with a linesman. Foligno has been playing, primarily, with Ryan Johansen and Scott Hartnell. Blue Jackets RW Cam Atkinson is day-to-day with an eye injury. Canadiens D Alexei Emelin played 26:06 against the Rangers Saturday, the second-highest regular-season ice time of his career. Avalanche C Nathan MacKinnon played 14:49 in Sunday’s overtime loss to Winnipeg, his second-lowest ice time of the season. The Avalanche inserted D Zach Redmond into their lineup over the weekend, taking the place of injured D Ryan Wilson, and he played 20:50 against the Winnipeg Jets – his previous team – Sunday. Blue Jackets D Ryan Murray played 17:55 in his first game of the season, Sunday at Los Angeles. His role should expand quickly as he gets up to game speed. Ducks D Ben Lovejoy reportedly broke his hand in a fight with Sharks RW Joe Pavelski Sunday. Mark Fistric appears to be next in line on the Ducks’ defensive depth chart. FIRSTS Blackhawks G Scott Darling stopped 32 of 33 shots to beat the Ottawa Senators 2-1 Sunday. Darling, 25, was a sixth-round pick of the Coyotes in 2007 and the 6-foot-6 goalie climbed his way from the University of Maine through low-level minor leagues, including two full seasons for the Louisiana IceGators and Mississippi RiverKings in the Southern Professional Hockey League. Lightning LW Jonathan Drouin scored his first NHL goal, Friday against the Jets, adding an assist in the 4-2 Lightning win. Sabres C Sam Reinhart notched his first NHL point, an assist on the game-winning goal by Nicolas Deslauriers against San Jose Saturday. Blues RW Dmitrij Jaskin scored the game-winning goal against the Blackhawks Saturday in his first NHL game this season. Jaskin had four points four AHL games before getting the call once Paul Stastny was put on IR. Coyotes C Justin Hodgman, a 26-year-old playing his first NHL game after spending the past three seasons in Europe, scored a power play goal in the third period against the Panthers Saturday. Bruins D Zach Trotman played his first game of the season, called up from AHL Providence in the wake of the Zdeno Chara injury, posting strong possession stats (17 for, 7 against, 70.8%) at Toronto. Capitals LW Liam O’Brien scored the first goal of his NHL career, putting five shots on goal with nice possession numbers (10 shot attempts for, 3 against, 76.9%) in 8:04 of ice time, against Vancouver Sunday. Flyers D Shayne Gostisbehere played 12:27 in his NHL debut, against Detroit Saturday. A third-round pick in 2012, Gostisbehere starred for Union College and had two points in three AHL games before getting called up to the Flyers in the aftermath of injuries to Braydon Coburn and Andrew MacDonald. Stars D Jyrki Jokipakka played his first two NHL games on Friday and Saturday. A seventh-round pick of the Stars in 2011, Jokipakka replaced Kevin Connauton in the Dallas lineup. FANTASY FOCUS Keep an eye on what’s happening with Rangers LW Mats Zuccarello, who is playing a career-high 17:37 per game, but has only one assist in seven games and his shot per game is down (from 2.21 to 1.71) from last season. Wild D Jared Spurgeon has five points in six games and is plus-8 and is still available in nearly half of TSN leagues. Canadiens D Alexei Emelin, who had a career-high 17 points last season, has five points in six games this season, playing a career-high 23:19 per game. Much of the data included comes from www.war-on-ice.com, www.puckalytics.com, www.hockeystats.ca and www.naturalstattrick.com Scott Cullen can be reached at scott.cullen@bellmedia.ca Christine Michael Sr Jersey . He was signed to help with depth to the receiving corps because of the loss of Shamawd Chambers to the 6-game injured list. John Simon Jersey . -- Having already fallen behind because of the NFL lockout, Blaine Gabbert couldnt afford a lengthy holdout. http://www.nflcoltsgearsshop.com/Customized.html?cat=899 . That little deal worked out in a big way for the Mavericks. Nowitzki had 21 points Tuesday night to pass Oscar Robertson for 10th on the NBAs career scoring list, leading the Mavs to a 95-83 victory over the Utah Jazz.Valencia have climbed up the La Liga table in recent weeks following three straight wins, including a 2-1 victory over Barcelona the Nou Camp. The change in form comes soon after the departure of Gary Neville, who was sacked as head coach after just three wins in 16 league games.His former assistant, Pako Ayestaran, has replaced him, and he told Sky Sports Guillem Balague what he thinks went wrong for Neville and how he has helped turn things around... Communication the keyOne of the main problems to get through to the players is communication. A few weeks ago, I was with a Spanish football head coach who has been really successful. He told me that he wouldnt go to a foreign country again without mastering the language. To get to the players you need the language and thats crucial. That could be one of the changes that has improved the level of the players Pako Ayestaran Its important and I am sure the problem with Gary was not a lack of knowledge, he has knowledge about the game.He has to put that into practice but to get to the players you need the language and thats crucial. That could be one of the changes that has improved the level of the players.All about self-beliefEverything changes with the way you are working and the belief that the people in charge show to the players. I think when you are in a bad run of results, your self-confidence and belief affects the way you train, your determination and performances.As soon as we changed the belief and self-confidence, the way the players approach the training sessions and daily basic challenges, then everything has been changing little by little. Guillem Balague chats with Graham Hunter about the futures of Ronaldo and Neymar as well as Barcelona’s financial struggles Change of mentalityWhen people arrive at clubs in bad runs normally the first thing they look at is the conditioning of the players, but most of the time that is not the main problem. Scott Tolzien Jersey. . Normally it is a lack of belief, lack of togetherness, lack of professionalism, lack of respect, or lack of ambition.As soon as you address all these main problems that affect the way players come to training, then everything starts changing. I say to players they have a daily challenge: to do the best work you can in every session, on every task, do it with enthusiasm and for the benefit of the team, because everything you give to the team you will get back. Also, you must overcome difficulties.Watch Valencias La Liga match at Getafe, live on Sky Sports 2 HD from 5.10pm on Sunday. Also See: Ronaldo: To sell or not to sell?
