EL SEGUNDO, CA — After a day off on January 6, the Los Angeles Kings returned to practice ice working on pushing their game back in the right direction as they hit the halfway point of the season against the New York Rangers on January 8 (7:30 PM PST, Staples Center in Los Angeles).

But the big news of the day was reports that head coach Darryl Sutter, and his assistant coaches, are expected to be coaching in the NHL All-Star Game on January 25, in Columbus.

Defensemen Drew Doughty and Jake Muzzin talked about that after practice, as did Sutter, and you can watch those interviews below.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — Now that the New Year is upon us, the Los Angeles Kings are looking to turn the page on 2014 and start a hard push for the playoffs.

“It’s now time to win a few in a row,” said veteran right wing Justin Williams. “Enough screwing around. It’s time to get ourselves atop the conference again, where we belong, and get some breathing room between us and other teams.”

“The regular season is long,” added Williams. “Everyone’s gunning for you. It’s a hard league. We need to, eventually, hit a point where it’s go time. We need to find that, and we need to bring it every night.”

The Kings’ come-from-behind 3-2 win at Vancouver on January 1 was a good start to their playoff push.
