Good morning, New York

Aw, hamburgers. There will be no view this trip.

Instead of gazing out above the dense building cluster to a view of the city, there’s a brick wall. Fortunately, there’s a scenic approach to JFK that, while no Approach into Farmingdale, was still an expansive look across southern Long Island.

So some things have changed and others have stayed the same since the Kings swept through the tri-state area in November. Ben Scrivens started all three games and shut out the Devils and Rangers, and Tanner Pearson scored the game-winning goal against the Islanders in his NHL debut as Los Angeles offered a preview of its postseason resilience by erasing a two-goal third period deficit in a 3-2 win. It was a rough week for Jonathan Quick, who had suffered a Grade 2 groin strain on the road trip’s jumping off point in Buffalo. The NHL season is a long one. Tomorrow will mark the seven-month anniversary of the date the Kings flew east for that trip.

It’s a rainy morning in New York and much cooler than a very warm Sunday. The Kings are scheduled to take the ice at 11:30 local time, but I’ll have some New York sound and content up before then. Keep an LAKI tab open on your computer on what will be a busy day from Midtown Manhattan.
