Kings' Pheonix Copley: Makes relief appearance
Copley stopped six of eight shots in relief of Joonas Korpisalo in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Oilers in Game 5.
The Oilers eased up a bit after Copley got into the contest, and the 31-year-old netminder still didn't put in a great effort. This was his first game action since April 8, and he's failed to record a win in his last four appearances. The Kings' season will be on the line in Game 6 on Saturday, but it seems likely Korpisalo will get the nod in that one.... See More ... See Less

Copley played well in his last start Tuesday against the Oilers, turning aside 30 of 32 shots, but he still came away with a loss due to insufficient goal support from his teammates.

Copley stopped 25 of 26 shots in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Kraken.
A low-scoring game finally went the Kings' way, with Copley's strong play a large part of the win. He limited the damage to an Oliver Bjorkstrand power-play tally in the third period, which came on a scrambled and failed clearance in the slot. This was Copley's fourth straight win, and he's allowed 10 goals in that span. For the season, the 31-year-old is at 24-4-3 with a 2.67 GAA and a .901 save percentage through 34 appearances.

Kings' Pheonix Copley: Set to face Blue Jackets

Kings' Pheonix Copley: Loses goalie duel in shootout
Copley stopped 29 of 30 shots in Saturday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Predators.
It was an unlikely goaltending duel in Hollywood, with Copley and Kevin Lankinen trading saves throughout the game.

Copley is at 20-4-3 with a 2.69 GAA and a .902 save percentage through 30 contests. The Kings' next game is Tuesday versus the Islanders. Copley and Joonas Korpisalo have alternated starts since the latter's arrival at the trade deadline, but the pattern may be broken if coach Todd McLellan wants Korpisalo to face his former Blue Jackets teammates Thursday....
