EL SEGUNDO, CA — Despite returning from their five-game Grammy road trip with a losing 2-3-0 record, the mood was rather upbeat in the Los Angeles Kings’ dressing room following practice at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, California, on February 13.

The reason? Even though they were just 1-1 in the final two games of that road trip, the Kings played their best hockey of the season, which could give them the badly-needed push needed to propel them into the Western Conference playoff race.

Those who played during the “lull” are generally sharper, they are playing the game at faster, quicker pace, their decision-making is quicker and better, and they are often in better condition.

Those who did not are playing catch-up, often in a big way.

One of those players who is playing catch-up said that things are improving.
