Jones' Solid Effort Can't Save LA In Game 4

News: Martin was flawless in a relief role Saturday, playing the final 40 minutes of the Kings' 2-0 loss to Anaheim. He allowed no goals on just three shots after taking over for starter Jonathan Quick.
Analysis: Quick will still likely get the nod as the teams line up again Monday for Game 5, because he's established himself as an elite goaltender. But Martin Jones' fine play in relief -- no goals on seven shots in 56:25 of crease time -- might make the LA coaching staff a bit more likely to call on Jones as soon as trouble arises.

Kings' Jones Makes Playoff Debut

News: Martin Jones relieved Jonathan Quick for the third period of Thursday's Game 1 loss to the Sharks, stopping four of four shots.
Analysis: It's interesting to see Quick -- who was ineffective, allowing five goals in two periods -- get yanked in this one, but the move seemed to invigorate the Kings, as they stormed back from a 5-0 deficit to make it a game at 5-3 before Brent Burns' empty-netter sealed it. Quick is likely to be back out there for Game 2, but if he struggles again, well, there's not much room for error in the playoffs, and that means Martin Jones could get his shot.

Kings' Jones Rarely Challenged In 17-Save Shutout

News: Martin Jones had to make just 17 saves Thursday against Edmonton for his fourth shutout of the season.
Analysis: Martin Jones was making his first start in a week, and he continued what's been a spectacular rookie campaign, albeit against an Oilers team that looks ready to start golfing. The Kings have one more game to go, and it's possible Jones starts that as well in order to rest and protect Jonathan Quick for the playoffs.

Kings To Start Jones Thursday

News: Martin Jones will start Thursday against Edmonton, Kings Insider Jon Rosen reports.
Analysis: Martin Jones' most recent start came last Thursday in San Jose, where he allowed two goals while making 19 saves in a losing effort. As Jonathan Quick rests ahead of the playoffs, Jones will get a chance to follow up his 24-save shutout of the Oilers previously this season when the puck is dropped Thursday.

Kings' Jones Likely Starter Saturday

News: Martin Jones was the only goalie on the ice for Saturday's morning skate, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Martin Jones will likely get a second consecutive start, but fantasy owners will still want confirmation. Likely headed for the No. 6 seed, the Kings can afford to let Jonathan Quick rest.

Kings' Jones Takes Loss In San Jose

News: Martin Jones allowed two goals on 21 shots in Thursday's loss to the Sharks.
Analysis: Martin Jones has seen very little action since Jonathan Quick got healthy -- he's started just seven times in calendar year 2014 -- but has been quite reliable when he does get the call. He's allowed exactly two goals in four consecutive starts.

Kings' Jones Starting Thursday

News: Martin Jones led the Kings onto the ice for warmups before Thursday's game against the San Jose Sharks, and he is thus expected to get the start in goal, LA Kings Insider's Jon Rosen reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Quick will catch some rest after shutting the Coyotes out Wednesday.

Kings Defeat Pens Thanks To Jones' 35 Stops

News: Martin Jones stopped 35 shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Martin Jones had watched from the bench for the last five games, but showed no rust in delivering his first victory since March 10. Though little-used these days with Jonathan Quick healthy, Jones has proven to be a terrific backup with great long-term fantasy upside.

Martin Jones

Kings' Jones Poised To Start Thursday

News: Martin Jones was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and is expected to start Thursday against the Penguins, LA Kings Insider's Jon Rosen reports.
Analysis: Coach Darryl Sutter will give Jonathan Quick a needed rest after he started back-to-back games earlier this week, granting Martin Jones a rare turn in the net. At the moment, the Kings appear rather firmly entrenched in the sixth spot in the Western Conference standings, which could result in a few extra outings for Jones over the final few games if the team chooses to preserve Quick for the postseason.

Jones Takes Tough Loss As LA Falls

News: Martin Jones allowed two goals on 20 shots as the Ducks edged Los Angeles on Saturday, 2-1.
Analysis: He played well enough to win, but the Kings' offense couldn't solve Anaheim netminder Frederik Andersen on this night. His solid effort gives the Kings' coaching staff added confidence that they can rest Jonathan Quick from time to time as the regular season winds down.

Kings' Jones Starting Saturday Vs. Ducks

News: Martin Jones will start Saturday's game against the Ducks, Elliott Teaford of the LA News Group reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Quick (illness) is available off the bench, while Frederik Andersen gets the nod in goal for the Ducks.

Kings' Jones Stops 24 In Win

News: Martin Jones made 24 saves on 26 shots in a win over the Flames on Monday.
Analysis: Martin Jones only has two starts since the end of January, so even while he's played great, he isn't generating much fantasy value due to limited work.

Kings' Jones Starting Monday

News: Martin Jones will start between the pipes for Monday's game against the Flames, Lisa Dillman of the LA Times reports.
Analysis: Martin Jones' last start came on February 26 when he pulled out a win against the Avalanche despite allowing four goals. In his 14 appearances to date, Jones has posted a save percentage of .934 and a 1.88 GAA.

Kings Expected To Start Jones On Monday

News: Martin Jones was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and is expected to receive the starting nod Monday vs. the Flames, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: The Kings have used Jonathan Quick in their last five games (all wins), but it makes sense to get him some rest for the second half of a back-to-back. With it being fairly safe to assume Martin Jones will get the start Monday, fantasy owners in daily leagues should have few reservations about using him against a Flames squad that was shut out by the Kings just 11 days ago.

Kings' Jones stops 25 In Win

News: Martin Jones allowed four goals on 29 shots Wednesday night against the Avalanche.
Analysis: The Kings pulled out a 6-4 win in a high scoring affair, as both teams started their backup net minders in their first games back from the Olympic break. Three of the four goals allowed by Martin Jones came on Avalanche power plays.

Martin Jones

Kings' Jones Likely To Start Wednesday

News: Martin Jones was the first goalie off the ice Wednesday and is likely to receive the starting nod against the Avalanche, LAKingsInsider.com's Jon Rosen reports.
Analysis: After Jonathan Quick started five of the United States' six games in Sochi during the Olympics, coach Darryl Sutter will look to get him a little more time to rest. Martin Jones has proven more than capable in his 13 outings this season and shouldn't have much trouble keeping the Kings competitive against a quality Avalanche team.

Kings Recall Jones

News: Martin Jones was recalled from AHL Manchester on Monday, Jon Rosen of LAKingsInsider.com reports.
Analysis: The Kings sent Martin Jones to Manchester over the Olympic break to get some meaningful ice time, but he'll have to settle in as the backup goalie behind Jonathan Quick with NHL games set to resume. Jones proved dominant when filling in as the No. 1 goalie in December, making him a must-add in just about any format in the event Quick succumbs to another injury at some point.

Kings' Jones Sent To AHL

News: Martin Jones was assigned to AHL Manchester by the Kings on Friday, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Martin Jones was sent down to the AHL as the Kings enter the Olympic break. With Jonathan Quick taking the net for Team USA in the Olympics, Jones will take some extra work in the AHL to keep sharp coming out of the break.

Kings' Jones Comes On In Relief Thursday

News: Martin Jones stopped 14 of 15 shots in relief of Jonathan Quick in Thursday's loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: After Quick was pummeled for three goals on seven shots in the first period, Martin Jones came on to clean up the mess, but wasn't able to lead the Kings to a comeback win. The rookie made some waves with eight consecutive wins to kick off his NHL career, but with Quick healthy and playing well (Thursday's outing aside), Jones only figures to see light usage barring another Quick injury.

Kings' Jones Lit Up For Five

News: Martin Jones allowed five goals on 34 shots in Tuesday's loss to Columbus.
Analysis: This spot start -- his first since back on Jan. 2 -- turned out to be Martin Jones' worst game of the year. He's now dropped four straight and has had a pair of total meltdowns in that span.

Kings' Jones Expected To Start Tuesday

News: Martin Jones is expected to start in goal Tuesday against the Blue Jackets, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Martin Jones was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, indicating he'll get the nod in the second half of the Kings' back-to-back set. The 24-year-old's performance in his first 11 NHL games led to the team trading Ben Scrivens to Edmonton, and he's now fully entrenched as the backup for Los Angeles.

Kings Recall Jones From AHL

News: Martin Jones was recalled from AHL Manchester on Wednesday, Lisa Dillman of the
Analysis: Martin Jones was the toast of the league earlier this season after going 8-3-0 with a 1.41 GAA and .950 save percentage in place of the injured Jonathan Quick, but he'll have a much more low-key role this time around. With Quick fully healthy and playing well after his bout with the groin injury, Jones will simply slot in as the backup after Ben Scrivens was traded to the Oilers earlier Wednesday. That being said, Jones' tremendous success earlier this season makes him an intriguing spot start option on the few occasions he happens to get the nod for the Kings.

Kings' Jones Sent To AHL

News: Martin Jones was re-assigned to AHL Manchester on Sunday, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Quick's return Saturday from a groin injury spelled the end of Martin Jones' tenure with the NHL club. Jones' career got off to a great start, with eight straight victories, but he hasn't been as sharp of late and the team evidently wants him to get back on track with the AHL club rather than toil on the bench. Ben Scrivens will remain in the backup role.

Martin Jones

Kings' Jones Likely Headed Back To AHL Soon

News: Martin Jones should be sent back to the AHL when Jonathan Quick returns, which could happen as soon as Saturday, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Martin Jones' play has dropped off lately, with him picking up his third straight loss while getting yanked in his last start. The Kings likely don't want Jones sitting on the bench when Quick returns and appear to be set to hand over the backup duties to Ben Scrivens in short order if Quick can make it through the pregame skate Saturday.

Third Straight Loss For Kings' Jones

News: Martin Jones absorbed his third consecutive loss Thursday against the Blues, giving up two goals on 14 shots before being pulled less than 32 minutes into the game.
Analysis: It's unusual to see the starter get pulled after giving up just two goals, particularly on double-digit shots. Ben Scrivens was no better in relief, so no one really made headway here on earning the backup job behind Jonathan Quick once Quick returns.
