LOS ANGELES — On April 25 at Staples Center, the Los Angeles Kings learned, in rather brutal fashion, that they still have a ways to go before they will be ready to inflict major damage on opponents in the playoffs.
Indeed, the Kings suffered a 4-2 defeat at the hands of the Vancouver Canucks. With the loss, the Kings were eliminated from the Western Conference Quarterfinals in six games.
More on the end of the 2009-10 season for the Kings is coming soon right here on Frozen Royalty.
