Since returning from injury on Dec. 17, Travis Konecny has had no problem maintaining his pace in points. He has six assists in the six games since his return. He has, however, been stuck on 11 goals for the last six games, though he has come close to scoring. The newly-named All-Star sure seems due for one soon.
Anze Kopitar has been the Kings' leader in goals and points this season with 15 goals and 35 points, but has been in a bit of a slump lately. LA's All-Star had a two-point game against the Canucks on Dec. 28 after getting just two points in the previous five games.

After a really rough start in Winnipeg and a win in Ottawa where he allowed four goals, Brian Elliott bounced back in a big way, picking up the win in Anaheim on Sunday making 27 saves on 28 shots. He will be back in goal for the final game of 2019 on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

No starter has been officially named for the Kings, but it can be assumed that Jonathan Quick will be in goal for LA on Tuesday. Quick enters Tuesday's game having lost three straight starts, including the last game on Saturday against the Canucks where he allowed three goals on 26 shots. Quick does have excellent numbers against the Flyers, posting a 9-3-1 record with a 1.61 GAA and .946 save percentage in 14 games.
