Trevor Moore, Kings beat Coyotes to extend road winning streak – Orange County Register

By JACK MAGRUDER The Associated Press

TEMPE, Ariz. — Trevor Moore scored two goals and the Kings extended their season-opening road winning streak to eight games with a 4-1 victory over the Arizona Coyotes on Monday.

Anze Kopitar and Phillip Danault also scored and Pheonix Copley made 30 saves for the Kings, who are tied for the third-longest such streak in NHL history. Buffalo holds the record by winning its first 10 road games in 2006-07.

The Kings are 9-1-2 in their last 12 games overall after sweeping the three-game season series against the Coyotes.

Lawson Crouse scored and Connor Ingram made 21 saves for Arizona, which played its seventh home game of the season. Ingram is 6-2 in his eight starts this season.

The Kings, playing on the fifth anniversary of Coach Todd McLellan’s hiring, scored the first three goals and are 8-0-1 when scoring first.

The Kings killed all six penalties, including a double minor on Adrian Kempe when the score was 3-1 midway through the third period. The Kings have not allowed a power-play goal in the last seven games and 26 penalty-kill situations.

Moore scored a short-handed goal at 3:36 of the first period. Danault picked up a pass that ricocheted off of Moore’s skate and returned it to Moore, who picked it up along the center side boards and beat Ingram with a wrist shot high to the glove side.

Kopitar made it 2-0 five minutes later when he took a nifty backhand pass from Quinton Byfield and found an open side. Kopitar has four goals and six points in the last four games against the Coyotes.
