Los Angeles Kings: Playoff Contention Slipping Away

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Kings are, for all intents and purposes, out of playoff contention.

After winning just eight games between November 1 and December 31, the Kings now find themselves deep in the National Hockey League’s Western Conference cellar, fifteen points behind eighth-place Anaheim with forty games left in the regular season.

Last year, it took 96 points to make the playoffs in the Western Conference, and since the 2001-02 season, a team has had to earn a minimum of 91 points in the standings to qualify for the post-season.

With just thirty points after 42 games, the Kings need 61 points to reach the 91-point plateau.
