I’ve been delinquent. I haven’t been posting as much as you’re all likely used to, and I sincerely apologize. I’ve been crazy busy with work lately, and it had reluctantly dragged me away from my passion: this blog. That said, I’ll stop boring you with my stories, and get back to what we all care about. The Los Angeles Kings!
The last two games we’ve demonstrated why some analysts are calling the Kings sleeper picks for the Stanley Cup this season. The team has played solid, intense, largely mistake-free hockey for a full 60-minutes. Twice in a row. As a result? They’ve been rewarded by at the top of the standings not only for their division. Not merely for the Conference. But for the entire National Hockey League. At 10-3-0, the Kings are demonstrated a very impressive spirit, especially considering the injuries they have suffered. Have they been as intense as the Andy Murray era? Of course not (thankfully). But we’ve lost some of our better players for stretches, and a little under 1/6th of the way through the season, the Kings are playing great hockey.
It’s a good time to be a Kings fan, and I’m sure most of you all agree so far. What has been the biggest surprise for you to this strong start? Did you expect it?
