Hours later, after a decisive 4-1 victory over the Nashville Predators in front of a sell-out crowd of 18,118 at Staples Center, the Kings are still at the top of the heap, with a 10-3-0 record, good for twenty points in the standings.

But even before that, when the Kings set a record with a nine-game winning streak from January 21 through February 6, 2010, the Kings got off to slow starts in most of those contests and had to struggle for come-from-behind wins. Read more of this post

Frozen Royalty Audio and NHL Video: LA Kings Still Can’t Figure Out Predators
