“Against the Kings, the trio’s cycle game was strong as they were able to earn quality offensive-zone time by protecting the puck and shielding it away from the Kings. They also were physical with White leveling one of the bigger collisions of the night when he ran into defenseman Brayden McNabb not long after McNabb checked White.”
