Frozen Royalty Audio: LA Kings Skate Hard In Practice Going Into Christmas Break

EL SEGUNDO, CA — The coaching staff of the Los Angeles Kings skated their players hard on the last day of practice before the two-day Christmas break.

With the players and coaches, not to mention members of the media, heading off to spend time with their families, few were interested in spending a lot of time talking or even sticking around, so there aren’t very many today.

  1. There was a nasty rumor jack Johnson was in considerable lower-body pain after the practice & seemed doubtful for Saturday.

    Any word on that?

    Hopefully, there’s nothing to it.

  2. Didn’t see anyone experiencing any sort of discomfort, either on the ice or off, as practice ended, nor did I see any evidence of that in the dressing room after practice. Terry Murray said he expected Johnson to play on Saturday at Phoenix.
