For The Los Angeles Kings, Black Friday Has A Totally Different Meaning

EL SEGUNDO, CA — When Terry Murray was hired as head coach of the Los Angeles Kings on July 17, 2008, his highest priority was to teach his young team how to play defense, something that seemed like a foreign concept to the Kings in the seasons just prior to his arrival.

Two years later, Murray’s mostly young charges had improved their defensive zone play in dramatic fashion by emphasizing coverage of the “home plate” area in front of their own net.

That focus was on point to start the 2010-11 season, one that saw the Kings jump out to a 12-3-0 start.
