EL SEGUNDO, CA — After learning that right wing Justin Williams’ eye injury was already on the mend and that he would recover fully, media turned much of their focus on the play of defenseman Alec Martinez, who has played well despite moving to the right side.

But what made almost as much news was that head coach Darryl Sutter was rather effusive with praise for Martinez.

LOS ANGELES — Like they did after the raised their 2012 Stanley Cup Championship banner, the Los Angeles Kings came out flat after they raised their 2014 Stanley Cup Championship banner on October 8, 2014 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, where the San Jose Sharks made easy work of the Kings in a 4-0 win.

Whether or not the Kings were distracted by the festivities may never be known—they denied that after the game. In any case, they were flat and not close to being in synch, making it easy for the Sharks to pick them apart.

Frozen Royalty caught up with defenseman Alec Martinez, winger Dustin Brown and head coach Darryl Sutter after the game. You can also listen to a “state of the league” press conference with National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman, and see a quick video of the Kings 2014 Stanley Cup banner being raised.
