Matt Greene is out.

Willie Mitchell is out.

It’s Anze Kopitar’s first game back…

Did I miss any?

We’re 0-2 in a 1/2 season, which means we are 0-4 if this was a regular season (see what I did there?) and while neither 0-2 or 0-4 are reasons to hit the PANIC button, it is cause for concern…or at least a FUCK before you forget this game and move on to Thursday against the Edmonton Oilers.

Some of this game was just bad luck. The first and third goals were absurd bounces that resembled something out of a racquetball game. But what the Kings failed to do in the third period is something they did last season after Darryl Sutter took over and that is to not only shut down the opposing team after getting a lead but keep up their forecheck and maintain puck possession in the offensive zone. Then again…

Matt Greene is out.

Willie Mitchell is out.

And this was Anze Kopitar’s first game back.

GO KINGS!
