Good morning, Phoenix
Good morning from the hotel in Phoenix, where the Kings will be holding meetings and having meals throughout the day instead of traveling to Glendale for a morning skate. I have been told that it has been several years since the team has stayed at this hotel; during last year’s Western Conference Final and for most Phoenix trips the team stays adjacent to the arena within the Westgate City Center. Los Angeles has faced Pacific Division foes only four times this season – a number that will rise as the next six games include three tilts against Phoenix, two against San Jose and one against Dallas. Tonight’s game at Jobing.com Arena begins at 7:00 pm and will be carried live on FOX Sports West and KTLK AM 1150.
