EL SEGUNDO, CA — Since the earliest days of the Los Angeles Kings 2013 training camp, head coach Darryl Sutter has been singing the praises of left wing Dwight King, referring to the 24-year-old native of Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan as his best player during training camp, and he has continued to speak highly of the much-maligned forward, to the chagrin of the considerable number of detractors he has gained since last season.

LOS ANGELES AND EL SEGUNDO, CA — As reported in this space on October 24, the Los Angeles Kings’ game is built around establishing a strong, relentless, smothering forecheck.

The only problem is that through 14 games this season, their forecheck has not always been there.

“The biggest part of our game is the forecheck, and it hasn’t been there every night,” winger and captain Dustin Brown told Frozen Royalty on October 23. “It’s been really inconsistent. When we’re really good, and hard to play against, it’s because our forecheck is really good.”

One week after Brown made that remark, his team put in their best effort of the season, despite glaring blunders on two goals against, to beat the National Hockey League’s best team to date, the San Jose Sharks, 4-3, in overtime, at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Kings are 2-2-0 as they begin a four-game road trip this evening against the Carolina Hurricanes (4:00 PM PDT, televised on Fox Sports West). But as their .500 record indicates, it has been quite the struggle so far, and that includes their last game, a 4-3 overtime win over the Ottawa Senators on October 9, at Staples Center in Los Angeles, a game in which they blew a 3-0 lead.

Winger and team captain Dustin Brown noted that despite blowing a big lead, the Kings have enough experience to get them through difficult times.

“You never want to blow a three-goal lead, but at the end of the day, this team has been through a lot harder situations,” said Brown. “As a group of guys, we’re at that point where I don’t think a lot of things faze us.”
