After speaking to various sources throughout the week, it has become apparent that, despite the game being scheduled for a Friday […]
The Los Angeles Kings have gone 27-11-5 with Jamie McBain in the lineup over the last two seasons. Without him? At 27-24-11, they’re barely a .500 team.
The Kings just win with McBain, right?
