EL SEGUNDO, CA — One day after they got off to another slow start against a lesser opponent and paid for it with a loss, the Los Angeles Kings were already looking ahead to their upcoming five-game road trip, one in which they know that they need to start stringing together some wins to keep themselves in a playoff spot, and, they hope, improve their position in the standings.

As mentioned, a big problem has been slow starts.
