(SportsNetwork. Obi Melifonwu Jersey .com) - The Toronto Maple Leafs will try to play spoiler as the Los Angeles Kings will try to match their longest winning streak in over four years in Thursdays battle at Staples Center. Watch the Kings vs. Maple Leafs live tonight on TSN starting at 10:30pm et/7:30pm pt. Toronto hopes to rebound after having a three-game winning streak halted in its last outing. The Maple Leafs were pounded 6-2 by the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday, losing one night after beginning a five-game road trip with a 3-1 win in Anaheim. Jake Gardiner registered both Toronto tallies in Tuesdays loss, while James Reimer allowed all six goals on 48 shots for the Leafs. "I thought we did a lot of things that gave them a lot of opportunities, specifically turning the puck over," said Toronto head coach Randy Carlyle. Toronto, which fell to 13-13-7 as the road club this season, is still in second place in the Atlantic Division. The Leafs are one point ahead of Montreal and three in front of fourth-place Tampa Bay. L.A. has won two straight and three of the last four meetings against the Maple Leafs overall, but Toronto has claimed the past two encounters at Staples Center. The Kings have won eight games in a row and seven of those victories have come after the Olympic break. The time off in February apparently was productive for Los Angeles, which had dropped nine of 11 games before the league went on hiatus for the Sochi Olympics. Another victory tonight would give L.A. its first nine-game winning streak since Jan. 21-Feb. 6, 2010, but a former teammate could prevent that from happening as Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier gets set to make his return to the Staples Center. Bernier, who served primarily as Jonathan Quicks backup during his time with the Kings, was dealt to Toronto last summer in exchange for forward Matt Frattin, goaltender Ben Scrivens and a second-round draft pick. Frattin and Scrivens have since been traded by L.A., while Bernier is having a terrific debut season with the Leafs, going 25-16-7 with a 2.59 goals against average and .926 save percentage in 49 games. Originally a first-round pick of Los Angeles in the 2006 draft, Bernier had a 29-20-6 career record with six shutouts and a 2.36 GAA in 62 games with the Kings. He expects to get the start tonight and has a chance to end the Kings recent hot streak. Thanks to the recent surge, the Kings are sitting comfortably in third place in the Pacific Division, nine points ahead of Phoenix for the last of the divisions three automatic bids to the playoffs. L.A. is still nine points behind San Jose for second place and 11 points behind Anaheim for the top spot. The Kings are back home on Thursday after a perfect three-game road trip. Los Angeles is beginning a five-game homestand tonight and is 19-10-3 at Staples Center this season. The club capped its recent swing with Mondays 3-2 regulation win at Calgary. Anze Kopitar scored the eventual winner in the third period as Los Angeles survived a late push from the Flames to pick up the win at the Saddledome. Trevor Lewis and Justin Williams scored for the Kings, while Martin Jones made 24 saves in the win. "Good way to finish off the trip. We did what we wanted," said Los Angeles head coach Darryl Sutter. "If you score three on the road you should win the hockey game." Quick expects to get the start for L.A. on Thursday. The Kings No. 1 backstop is 2-1-0 with a 2.62 goals against average and .910 save percentage in three career games against the Maple Leafs. Kings forward Jordan Nolan is eligible to return tonight after sitting out the last game due to a suspension. Nolan earned the one-game ban for a sucker punch on Edmonton Oilers forward Jesse Joensuu on Sunday. Jack Tatum Jersey .

In Europe, top teams seem to be largely happy with their squads after spending nearly $1 billion in the off-season. And although English league clubs are unlikely to splash cash in January, Arsenal and Chelsea could be tempted to strengthen their squads with new strikers.Columbus, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - A pair of former Philadelphia players teamed up to help the Blue Jackets win on Tuesday night. Scott Hartnell scored a power-play goal in the second period and Sergei Bobrovsky came up with 19 stops as Columbus claimed a 3-2 decision over the Flyers at Nationwide Arena. Kevin Connauton actually ended the contest at the 1:58 mark of overtime, breaking in alone and lifting a wrister under the crossbar off a feed from Ryan Johansen. The hosts were close to picking up two points while not allowing their opponents to take one away. Controversy erupted with 55.3 seconds to go, as a deflection from Brayden Schenn of a point shot slipped through Bobrovsky. Although referee Dave Jackson emphatically shook his head and raised his arms to stop play, televised replays revealed the puck was clearly over the line. Further review quickly confirmed the marker and the game headed to overtime. Boone Jenner also lit the lamp for the Blue Jackets, winners of a season-high four straight games. Schenn posted both scores for the Flyers, who finished up a five-game cross- country road trip at 1-2-2. Steve Mason halted 21 pucks in defeat, three days after his 37-save effort in Los Angeles allowed his club to pick up their lone win on the trip. Jenner produced the games first goal at the 12:34 mark of the first period, just 37 seconds into aa Zac Rinaldo interference call, by picking up his own blocked pass and scoring from the right post. Otis Sistrunk Jersey. That pushed Columbus power-play prowess against Philly to 5-for-8 in two-plus contests. The Flyers got one back on their initial advantage, as Claude Giroux slipped a puck into a seam off the rush and Schenn one-timed it home from the high slot at 17:53. A scramble in front of Mason resulted in Hartnells turnaround backhander from atop the crease for another Blue Jackets power-play goal and a 2-1 lead at 10:39. Bobrovsky was quick to halt a Michael Raffl deflection with just over two minutes remaining in regulation, and Mason was called to the bench with 1:53 left for an extra attacker.
