L.A. Kings rookie G Martin Jones off to record start

Mon., Dec. 23, 2013

Los Angeles Kings goalie Martin Jones, who was in the AHL three weeks ago, is off to the greatest start to a career in NHL history. Jones has allowed eight goals in eight games. With the Kings’ 3-2 shootout victory over Colorado on Saturday, Jones matched Bob Froese’s record of eight straight victories to start his career with Philadelphia in 1982-83. If Jones is in net when Los Angeles hosts Dallas tonight, he’ll have the chance to match Ray Emery’s NHL record of winning nine straight decisions to start a career. Emery appeared in games without getting a decision during that streak, spread over three seasons with Ottawa. –AP
