Another day, another chance at turning things around. This has to be the what most of the Kings players and fans are feeling going into tonight’s action against the Ottawa Senators. The Kings have struggled in their first three games of the season and will get a chance to right the ship on home ice. Now if the Kings do lose, things may start to get a little nasty around Los Angeles.
In other NHL news, just up the coast, 19-year-old Tomas Hertl scored four goals for the San Jose Sharks last night in their 9-2 win over the New York Rangers. As if scoring four goals wasn’t enough his fourth was a between the legs shot on a partial breakaway beating Martin Biron. Welp, welcome to the NHL kid.
