The Los Angeles Kings have six games remaining.  Everyone has been watching the standings while the sweat gathers on their forehead.

The big question is do the Kings have what it takes to make it back to the playoffs to defend their title?

With 20 games remaining in the season RinkRoyalty estimated it would take the Kings 13 wins, or 96 points to get into the playoffs.  Since that point in time the Kings have gone 8-4-2.  L.A. currently sits in 4th in the Pacific Division and 9th in the Western Conference.

The Kings have 88 points in the standings.

Let’s be honest, every game is a must win, but can the Kings really pull it out?

Here we’ll re-evaluate our assessment and take a practical look at the potential outcome of the Kings remaining games.
