Up next for Kings: Saturday versus Phoenix



Time: 7:30.

On the air: TV: FS West; Radio: 1150.

Where: Staples Center.

Records: Kings 31-35-11, Coyotes 35-37-7.

Record vs. Coyotes: 1-4.

Update: Before the game, the Kings will honor their five players who have had their numbers retired: Wayne Gretzky, Rogie Vachon, Dave Taylor, Marcel Dionne and Luc Robitaille. As for other reasons to see the Kings, that’s a little tougher. They have won one of their last seven games, scoring only eight goals in that span, and were eliminated from the playoffs with Thursday’s loss at Phoenix. On Friday, the Kings signed Denver University forward Patrick Mullen, the son of Hall of Fame forward Joey Mullen, to an entry-level contract.
