Most cliches end up standing the test of time because they’re largely true.
‘You have to be beat the teams you’re supposed to beat to make the playoffs’ is a common phrase in hockey. And for the Kings, it certainly rang true on Thursday night in Chicago.
The Blackhawks are expected to be a lottery team this season. Meanwhile, the Kings are looking to build off of last season and go on a deeper playoff run next April. However, any thoughts of the postseason are putting the cart before the horse for Todd McLellan and team. Not leaving points on the table is paramount in the Western Conference — even in early November.
Below are select highlights from the game:
