No team in the NHL has allowed fewer goals this season than the LA Kings.
That is cool.
Missing our best defenseman Drew Doughty the last 4 games has not been cool but it is smart and safe to save him for the playoffs.
Our offense is better too with the addition of Lord Marian.
Jake Muzzin doesn’t scare me this time around. He is better. Not great but better. The player about whom I am most concerned is Mike Richards. I see number 10 out there. Sure looks like him. I find myself missing him a lot.
As bad as he has been, the playoffs are a fresh start and he has earned the benefit of the doubt.
An often unspoken key to playoffs success for our Kings will be…give up? Faceoffs.
Surly is going to write stuff about playoff stuff and one of our readers may write stuff too. As for me, I am working today and this was hammered out during a brief lunch break…
