Jeff Zatkoff scheduled to man the crease for Kings

The Los Angeles Kings are expected to start Jeff Zatkoff in goal versus the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday.

What It Means:

Zatkoff has struggled in his fourth NHL season as he owns a 1-5-0 record with an average of 3.20 goals allowed and a .882 save percentage. Lucky for him, the goalie gets to face off with a slumping Red Wings club who is winless in their last three games and has scored a total of two goals in the past week.

Our models project an average night for Zatkoff with a 43.0 chance of winning, 26.0 saves and 2.4 goals allowed.
