Beginning tonight in St. Louis, the Kings will play 14 of their next 18 games on the road. And the first one out of the chute won’t be easy for LA, as the Blues have only lost three games on home ice this season. However, one of those came to the Kings in a 3-2 contest back in November.
Prior to heading out of town, here’s what Dustin Brown had to say about the team’s annual Grammy trip…
“The one game that stands out is that very first one. St. Louis has probably been one of the hottest teams since their coaching change. So, I think going in there, on the road, with the way they’re playing, it’s going to be a big test for us.”
Here’s a look at how several of the Kings have performed against the Blues in the past…
Anze Kopitar – 9 goals in 22 games
Brown – 13 goals in 27 games
Justin Williams – one goal in 17 games
Jarret Stoll – six goals in 27 games
Drew Doughty – one goal in 13 games
Jack Johnson – no goals in 15 games
