Kings coasting along, lead 1-0
Nothing makes a goaltender look better than a solid defense. Kings' goaltender Erik Ersberg carries a 1-0 shutout into the third period Saturday at Staples without breaking much of a sweat.
The Kings have limited the Minnesota Wild's opportunities throughout the game, with a 31-17 edge in shots on goal. Ersberg has come up big when needed, snagging shots and leaving few rebounds. He also caught a break when the Wild's Pierre-Marc Bouchard hit the post with a shot late in the second period.
