LAKings.com feature: Up, Up and Away
As the Kings opened their season-long road trip with consecutive wins in Chicago and St. Louis, I began gathering quotes on variables that must come together to generate success away from home. It wasn’t always a linear process; the team wasn’t able to hold a two-goal lead and lost a shootout in Minnesota, dominated possession in a quality win at Dallas, and concluded the trip with a regulation loss against a hard-working Phoenix team.
It all came together in my LAKings.com feature this week, entitled Up, Up and Away. In it I hope you’ll gain some sentiments from the locker room and hockey staff on a mostly successful road trip in which the team collected seven out of a possible 10 points while facing stiff competition.
