Mike Richards extended his point streak to six games with a goal on Saturday.
"I think he has gotten stronger for sure," Kings Coach Darryl Sutter said. "And as is typical with Mike, that is the bigger it gets, the better he plays. I think it's on record that he had a tough start and he's certainly played well lately. We need those centermen to complement each other, that was one of the real strengths of our team last year." Richards has three goals and seven points during his six-game hot streak.
