(AP) -- It's no surprise that the Pittsburgh Penguins have been an offensive force to begin the season. Similarly predictable, the Los Angeles Kings have been one of the league's stingiest teams.
The defending Stanley Cup champions visit Pittsburgh on Thursday night, making their second stop on a five-game trip with hopes of extending an eight-game run without a regulation loss.
The Kings (6-1-2) began the swing Tuesday with a 3-2 overtime loss in Philadelphia to continue a point streak in which they haven't allowed more than two regulation goals. They had given up five goals in their previous six games, and they'll bring the same unflappable mentality against the big-name Penguins.
