Is it important to secure home-ice for the first round of the playoffs? Does Anze Kopitar need a goal? Do they want to work on the power play? Penalty Kill? Do a few [...]
Prior to Thursday night’s game with the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets, the Kings wore special-edition Dodgers hockey jerseys during warm-ups. It was sure to boil the blood a bit of Blue Jays super-fan Drew Doughty.
