Phillip Danault still enjoys Los Angeles
Quebecer Phillip Danault continues to spin perfect happiness with the Los Angeles Kings, and the former Montreal Canadiens forward reached a significant plateau on Saturday night.
The California team beat the Winnipeg Jets 4-1. They have an excellent record of 9-0-2 in their last 11 games and Danault has played an important role in their success.
The Victoriaville native reached 300 points in his 543rd career game by teaming up with Alex Iafallo, who scored the winning goal early in the middle period.
Danault is on track to set a new personal high for points. He had 18 goals and 50 points in 72 games. During his most productive career season, in 2018-2019, he had amassed 53 points with the CH.
Thanks to their successful streak, the Kings are installed in second place in the Pacific Division.< /p>
They are also on course to face the Edmonton Oilers in the first round of the playoffs for a second consecutive season. Last year, the Alberta team triumphed in seven games.
-In addition, Kings forward Blake Lizotte has been suspended for one game, the player safety department announced on Sunday. He cross-checked hard in the face of Josh Morrissey during Saturday's game.
