Ben Scrivens is about to get more work in the Los Angeles Kings' crease.

The club confirmed on Wednesday what GM Dean Lombardi revealed on a Toronto- based radio program, that he expects starting goaltender and 2012 Conn Smythe Trophy winner Jonathan Quick to be on the sidelines for at least another month.

Since Quick went down with a Grade 2 groin strain suffered during overtime of a 3-2 shootout loss in Buffalo on Nov. 12, Scrivens has filled in admirably, going 4-0-0 with a 1.00 goals-against average, .963 save percentage and back- to-back shutouts. Included in that run was a scoreless string lasting 191 minutes and 19 seconds.

Having gone 6-0-1 in its last seven games despite additional losses of forward Jeff Carter to a broken foot and defenseman Matt Greene to an upper-body injury, Los Angeles is 15-6-1 on the season and currently holds fourth place in a competitive Pacific Division.
