MINNESOTA: LAST SEASON: 45-26-11, 101 points. Third in Central Division.
LOST to Winnipeg Jets in Western Conference quarterfinals.
COACH: Bruce Boudreau (third season, 12th NHL season).
ADDED: RW J.T. Brown, C Eric Fehr, C Matt Hendricks, RW Matt Read, D Greg Pateryn, D Matt Bartkowski.
LOST: C Matt Cullen, LW Tyler Ennis, RW Daniel Winnik.
PLAYER TO WATCH: LW Zach Parise. After missing the first 39 games because of a lower back problem that required surgery, Parise's delayed start was predictably slow. He scored 12 goals in his last 18 games of the regular season, though, and scored in each of the first three playoff games until being knocked out of action again by a broken sternum. Parise, who's entering his 14th NHL season at age 34, isn't built to be the team's premier scorer but needs to replicate that productivity down the stretch to help keep the offense balanced.
OUTLOOK: New GM Paul Fenton made only minor moves this summer for fresh faces on the fourth line and more depth on defense, so the Wild will rely on the same core that has been bounced out of the playoffs in the first round three straight times and won only two series over the last six years. Just reaching the postseason again in the rugged Western Conference would be an accomplishment in itself, and Boudreau has as strong of an 82-game track record as any bench boss in the league. Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter, who's coming off a serious ankle injury that kept him out of the playoffs, must stay healthy throughout the seventh year of their identical $98 million megadeals. Wings Charlie Coyle and Nino Niederreiter also have to bounce back from down seasons.
LOS ANGELES: LAST SEASON: 45-29-8, 98 points. Fourth place Pacific Division.
LOST to Vegas Golden Knights in first round.
COACH: John Stevens (second season, sixth NHL season).
ADDED: LW Ilya Kovalchuk
LOST: D Christian Folin, D Kevin Gravel, RW Tobias Rieder, D Jordan Subban, G Scott Wedgewood
PLAYER TO WATCH: Anze Kopitar. The center and Kings captain had a 40-point improvement last season, going from 52 points to a career-high 92 and finishing third in voting for the league MVP. He should be part of a formidable line with the addition of Kovalchuk ' who returns to the NHL after five seasons playing professionally in Russia ' and Dustin Brown.
OUTLOOK: The Kings have not advanced past the first round of the playoffs since winning the Stanley Cup in 2014 and could be hard-pressed to advance this season. They have one of the oldest rosters in the league with nine players who are 30 or older. They also remain challenged to find consistent goal scorers beyond the first line.
Kings hope to keep evolving style vs. Wild

The Minnesota Wild are getting the type of offense from their defensemen that Los Angeles Kings interim coach Willie Desjardins hopes to see from his new team.

Desjardins will get an up-close look at Minnesota's style of play when the Kings (5-8-1) host the Wild on Thursday night at Staples Center, the second game for Desjardins since his was hired by Los Angeles last weekend.

The Wild (8-4-2) are second in the NHL in goals scored by their defensemen with 14, and they lead the league in the percentage of goals scored by their defensemen at 32.6.

Ryan Suter is tied for the Minnesota lead with 13 points (three goals, 10 assists), Matt Dumba has scored five goals, tied for second among NHL defensemen, and Jared Spurgeon has eight points (three goals, five assists), which is more than Kings center Anze Kopitar, the team's leading point scorer 10 of the past 11 seasons.

Desjardins, who was hired shortly after John Stevens was fired after 18 months as head coach, said he'd like to take advantage of the offensive abilities of his defensemen.

"We can get our D moving more," he said.

The Wild could be short-handed at forward.

Eric Staal missed the 4-3 loss at the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night because of an illness, ending a streak of 335 straight appearances.

Minnesota coach Bruce Boudreau told reporters on Wednesday that Staal would likely take a commercial flight to Los Angeles later Wednesday night in hopes of feeling strong enough to the Kings.

Staal is tied for second on the team with five goals and alone in fourth with 11 points.

"To me, he'd have to feel really good (Wednesday night) and have a real good morning skate to feel strong enough to go, so I would say he's questionable," Boudreau said.

Another Wild center, Matt Hendricks, returned against San Jose after missing the previous seven games with a lower-body injury, but he took a maintenance day on Wednesday to nurse some bumps and bruises.

Boudreau said the team would likely recall a player from Iowa of the American Hockey League if Staal and Hendricks are unable to Los Angeles.

The Kings lost to the Wild 4-1 in Minnesota on Oct. 25, the final defeat in a six-game losing streak that likely played a big role in the dismissal of Stevens.

Los Angeles has since won three of four and scored four goals in each of the wins, something they accomplished just once in the first 10 games.

Desjardins said one of the keys to sustaining offense is rolling four forward lines.

"I think that's the best way to play," he told reporters after a 4-1 win against the Anaheim Ducks in his team debut Tuesday night. "If we can roll four, we can stay fresh and we can play hard. It's an adjustment for the guys, too. Not only do I adjust to the team, all of a sudden they get somebody doing different things, and it's a little bit hard for them right away, too."
