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


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
