EL SEGUNDO, CA — Heading into tonight’s Game 4 of their first round playoff series against the St. Louis Blues (7:00 PM PDT, Staples Center; televised regionally on CNBC in the United States, CBC and RDS in Canada, and on Fox Sports West in Southern California), the Los Angeles Kings find themselves back in the series, having won Game 3 on May 4, 1-0, at Staples Center, cutting the Blues’ lead in the series by half.

Return Trip Will Be Impacted By Repair Work For LA Kings Fans Planning To Ride Metro Expo Line To Saturday’s Game 3 vs. St. Louis

Metro Expo Line riders who will be attending Game 3 of the first round playoff series between the Los Angeles Kings and the St. Louis Blues on Saturday, May 4, at Staples Center, should be advised that Metro will be replacing a support pole that was taken out on April 4 by a driver who was allegedly under the influence of a controlled substance.

The driver was headed the wrong way on Flower Street, just south of Washington Boulevard, when he hit a pole that supports the overhead catenary wires that provide electrical power to the trains, as well train control signal heads that were also in the vicinity (see Metro’s photos of the aftermath here).
