the L.A. Kings are actually resembling a NHL team and are flirting with a (cue Jim Mora) playoff spot. Look I am not going to go off the deep end and say that I expect Lord Stanley’s Cup to paraded down Figueroa anytime soon, but this team may be turning the corner sooner than expected.
Right now I am truly excited to see this team go on a 6-1 road trip, which if not for another ill timed penalty in Montreal (which will forever haunt Kings fans) could have had a 7-0 road trip. Now there is still a long way to go and the schedule sets the Kings up for a lot of nights away from The Staples Center.
However if they are going to keep playing like this away from home then I say stay away.
Well I am going to hold on to hope that the kids will be alright and get this team out of the sink hole it has created for itself.
