EL SEGUNDO AND LOS ANGELES, CA — On January 3, despite having suffered a very frustrating 7-6 overtime loss to the Nashville Predators at Staples Center in Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Kings had to quickly recover from the sting of that defeat so they could meet and have some fun with fans at Tip A King 2015, held across the street at the LA Live Event Deck.

The Kings announced that the event has raised a record $300,000 (and they are still counting receipts) for the Kings Care Foundation.

Each year at Tip A King, players, coaches and broadcasters sign autographs and take photos with fans. But every year, something happens that stands out more than others, and this year’s event was no exception, thanks to defenseman Alec Martinez, a ten-year-old fan, and a photo of the two that has spread pretty widely on social media.

Frozen Royalty Video: Bad Start, Poor Defensive Play Costs LA Kings in OT Loss To Nashville

LOS ANGELES — Matt Greene scored just 32 seconds into the first period to give the Los Angeles Kings an early lead in their matinee game against the Nashville Predators at Staples Center in Los Angeles on January 3, but that only served to cover up another poor start, one in which they did little after Greene’s goal until they were looking way up at a 5-1 deficit.

“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.
