  Petersen sharp in return to net, Kings blank Red Wings 4-0 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cal Petersen stopped all 21 shots he faced in his first start in more than a month, Phillip Danault and Drew Doughty scored in the first period, and the Los Angeles Kings rolled to a 4-0 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night. “I guess, typical coach, you want our team to play that way throughout the whole night, and we fell off a little bit after that — but a tremendous start. On our toes, getting to a lot of loose pucks, winning faceoffs, playing the way we wanted to play,” Kings coach Todd McLellan said. Adrian Kempe scored short-handed, Trevor Moore added an empty-net goal and Los Angeles won for the third time in four games.

NOTES: Kings F Trevor Moore had two assists, giving him five points during a three-game streak. ... Kings F Samuel Fagemo made his NHL debut. Fagemo was a second-round pick in the 2019 draft. ... With three support staffers unavailable because of COVID-19 protocols, Aisha Visram served as athletic trainer for the Kings. Visram, who is head trainer for Los Angeles’ AHL affiliate, is believed to be the first woman to work on the bench of a NHL regular-season game in any capacity, according to the Professional Hockey Athletic Trainers Society and Society of Professional Hockey Equipment Managers.
