Things are starting to look up for the Los Angeles Kings. After three straight shutout defeats, the Kings have won two in a row, and now one of their two injured goalies says he’s healthy again.

“I felt really good,” Jeff Zatkoff (groin) said this morning after practice, per LA Kings Insider. “First full day, no pain, nothing. I feel like I’m 100 percent ready to go, so real positive.”

It remains to be seen when Zatkoff will play, but Jack Campbell is expected to be returned to the AHL shortly. Peter Budaj shut out the Flames on Saturday, so he could be back between the pipes Tuesday in Toronto, where the Kings (6-6-0) will kick off a five-game road trip.

The Kings still have a significant injury list. Jonathan Quick is out until the New Year, while Marian Gaborik, Brayden McNabb, and Andy Andreoff won’t be back until December.

But they’re surviving, and that’s the goal until they’re back to full strength.
