The fans at STAPLES Center will be treated to a game between the Minnesota Wild and the Los Angeles Kings when they take their seats on Tuesday.

ABOUT THE WILD (13-10-3): Defenseman Matt Dumba once again has been contributing offensively with four points in his last four games after setting career highs in goals (11), assists (23), points (34) and plus-minus (plus-15) last season. The 23-year-old Saskatchewan native set up the game-winning goal versus the Blues after his slap shot glanced off Vegas defenseman Deryk Engelland in front of the net to set up Eric Staal’s rebound before using his considerable speed to give Minnesota its second straight win. “Matt looked like he was shot out of a cannon when he picked up the puck,” coach Bruce Boudreau said after Dumba scored 39 seconds into overtime versus the Blues.

ABOUT THE KINGS (17-8-3): While captain Anze Kopitar has scored in back-to-back contests and owns a three-game point streak (three goals, two assists), the 30-year-old Slovene appeared happier to talk about the team’s defensive plan against the Blackhawks as opposed to his offensive surge. “Try to block shots, as many as you can, take away lanes because they have a lot of guys that can make some pretty tight passes,” Kopitar said. “So, I thought we obviously did a good job.” The dedication to defense has shown itself on the team’s top-ranked penalty kill (89.5 percent) as Los Angeles has thwarted 15 of 16 opportunities during its win streak.

Oddsmakers opened the Kings as -145-moneyline favorites versus the Wild, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

The Los Angeles Kings rebounded from a disastrous stretch of losses in seven of eight games (1-6-1) with victories in five straight contests. The Pacific Division-leading Kings look to extend their season-high win streak on Tuesday when they open a three-game homestand against the Minnesota Wild.

Los Angeles’ calling card has long been its defense, and Jonathan Quick continued his stellar play after turning aside 24 shots in Sunday’s 3-1 win over Chicago. The 2012 Conn Smythe Trophy recipient is 4-0-0 with a 1.23 goals-against average and .952 save percentage during the win streak, but didn’t fare as well in 5-4 overtime loss at Minnesota on Feb. 27. Devan Dubnyk, who picked up the win in that outing to improve to 7-4-1 in his career versus the Kings, has answered a rough patch with back-to-back strong performances. The 31-year-old Saskatchewan native made 29 saves in a 4-2 victory versus Vegas on Thursday before turning aside 41 shots two nights later in a 2-1 overtime win against St. Louis.

The Kings were a 3-1 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Blackhawks. That made winners of bettors who got Los Angeles at -106 on the moneyline, while the total score (4) was good news for UNDER bettors.

Last time out for Minnesota, they were a 2-1 winner as they battled the Blues at home. Moneyline bettors who got the Wild at -121 were rewarded, while the 3 combined goals moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
